Home > Parts & Accessories > Fernandes Sustainer Pickup

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 instrumentís 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 do you get natural sustain using digital effects? The FERNANDES SUSTAINER is the way!



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 (B), the Sustainer Circuit Board (C) & the neck Sustainer Driver pickup (A), 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!
