Re: Sustaining Device

I agree with Matthias.  The DF-2 pedal is a joke, not worthy of the name
feedbacker.  It simply freezes a sample tone which is totally static.
Sustain and feedback are interesting precisely because of the subtle
animated harmonics involved; this pedal produces what sounds like a cheezy
synthesizer with a key taped down.  One of the singular failures in the 
pedal line.
