    Depends on exactly what you mean. The sustain pedal/switch for a keyboard is totally unrelated to bass guitar. If you want just a bit more sustain, a compressor can do that. If you want a lot more sustain and don't mind being compressed intensely, there are heavy squishing sustainers like the Pigtronix Philosophers. If you want infinite synthetic sustain, check out the EHX Freeze.

    Yep that's what I meant....just simply sustain a note.....nothing else....

    Thanks for the EXH Freeze reference..........

    I don't really want anything in the way of effects......except for the sustain option.....
