    Is there one? Not really a huge deal to me, I was just thinking that I could use one for a few things. I did a search and didn't come up with much.

    I'm thinking a good delay pedal might do the trick. Or else if my bass had a MIDI feature...

    Crank up the gain or use a compressor.

  4. Any gain pedal.

    A compressor.

    A sample and hold delay.
  5. i think you guys are thinking something different...are you talking something like a piano's sustain pedal? then no. the closest thing that i found that almost is usable is to get a reverb and set the decay for a long time, but that gets muddy really fast.
    unless you are talking about just extending the sustain of your bass so you can hold a note longer, then these guys are right.
