We have been revolutionizing the electric guitar for thousands of players since 1987.

Intense, predictable, infinite feedback sustain for guitars and other stringed instruments. Make easy, infinite, effortless dive bombs, change to cool-sounding harmonics during solos. Indespensible for the recording studio. WARNING: ADDICTIVE

A sustainer is the only effect that operates directly on the strings of the instrument.

VACATION SLOWDOWN BUT STILL OPEN FOR BUSINESS.


Dear Sustainiac Customers:

I have never put my name on this website until now. I am Alan Hoover, principal owner and operator of the Sustainiac business since its beginning in 1987. I will take the month of February, 2019 off for a much-needed vacation. While away, I will also answer phone calls and emails, and work with my son Jay in Indianapolis, who will run the business in my absence. I will be involved with some installations and semi-installations in an advisory position during this time. The telephone number is 317-340-1161, or send an email to info@sustainiac.com.

As the Sustainiac grows more popular, orders for our retrofit kit are ever-increasing. This results in ever-increasing time by telephone and email to answer installation questions. It has gotten to the point where it is almost impossible to keep up. The Sustainiac installation is often rather complex and requires much time with customers who don't have much skill with electronics assembly. As a result, we have been pushing the use of our Auxilliary boards, which simplify the installation. We will continue to do this. We will also have to decline complex, special installations that we have done over the years.

NEW SUSTAINIAC INSTALLATION OPTION for MAY 2018
SUSTAINIAC AUXILLIARY ("AUX") BOARDS

The new Aux boards will fit into many control cavities with no routing needed. They greatly reduce installation labor and also lessen the chance that the sustainer will squeal (oscillate) due to wiring crosstalk. We think this $10.00 option will allow end users to save much time and money with their Sustainiac installation. More info on our AUX-BOARD PAGE


SUSTAINIAC "AUX-TT" BOARD

Most Sustainiac users choose the popular toggle switch option for both Sustainiac ON/OFF and also Harmonic Mode selection.


SUSTAINIAC "AUX-JS" BOARD

Another popular option is for push-pull Sustainiac ON/OFF and toggle for Harmonic Mode selection. The push-pull ON/OFF control doubles as a tone control.
