Since the 1960's, electric guitar players have been searching for an effective way to control sustain and feedback. The Fernandes Sustainer puts that power at your fingertips. Their patented technology allows players to produce Hendrix-like textures and tonal colorings at any volume level. The Sustainer works with single notes or chords and can be adjusted to give swells or a gradual decay to the sustain.
What is the Fernandes Sustainer
The Fernandes Sustainer is a specially designed electronic system for electric guitar that creates controllable sustain of any single or group of notes in the instrument's sound range. This means that the string(s) will ring at constant intensity indefinitely until stopped, regardless of output and location, even if your guitar is not connected to an amplifier.
What can the Fernandes Sustainer do for you?
Bring your creativity to new levels by using the Sustainer with any combination of gear in your arsenal of effects, amp modelers and home recording equipment. Discover new sounds exploring the world of controlled sustain and feedback.
How does it work?
The patented Fernandes Sustainer system generates a magnetic field causing the strings of the guitar to vibrate. Powered by a 9-Volt battery, the interaction of the bridge humbucking pickup, the Sustainer Circuit Board and the neck Sustainer Driver pickup, projects magnetic pulses that continuously vibrate the strings of the guitar, the same way an amplifier at extreme volume would do, yet totally controlled. The result is infinite sustain and/or feedback using sparkly clean or loud distorted settings without the need for excessive volume or extra outboard gear.
1. Natural Mode: The note(s) will continue to ring its natural fundamental tone as long as the string(s) are free to vibrate and the Sustainer System is on.
2. Harmonic Mode: Within seconds, the pitch of the ringing note(s) will rise to the 5th natural harmonic.
3. Mix Mode: Available on select models including the FSK-401 Sustainer Kit, the Mix mode blends the Natural and Harmonic Mode to harmonize indefinitely every ringing note creating a harmonized feedback effect.
