Re: OT: Sustainiac

I was underwhelmed with my Sustainiac, although I confess I installed 
it on an electric upright bass, so I had no idea what to expect in 
the first place.

It seemed like I had to mount it so close and crank it up so high 
that it would feedback into the magnetic pickup as soon as it started 
doing anything useful, sustain-wise. But now that my bass has shiny 
new optical pickups, I oughta try it again.
