       i want to play indian music on fretless......but fretless has that low sustain problem....has any of you ever tried a sustain pedal on clean patch on fretless...? is there any such sustain pedal that can enhance sustain for clean sound (not distorted)...?

Well. what I think you are talking about is a compressor, plenty about, the Sonuus Voluum is good and I use it.


Sustain is not a problem, it is a condition, stop thinking about it as a problem, it is what it is, part of the instrument, if you have a fast succession of notes, why do you need sustain?
