A few words of wisdom
SteveVai
The Fernandes Sustainer gives my guitar playing a whole new dimension. As a matter of fact it’s sort of a dimension of slow motion. I actually can play long slow notes now.

Steve Vai

TheEdge U2 Sustainer
My Fernandes Sustainer guitar gives me infinite sustain as it should be--with control and musicality.

The Edge / U2

With the Fernandes Sustainer I think I’ve scared all of the other animals away. The sounds of hell just became more interesting.
Kerry King / SLAYER

I've played tons of guitars live and in the studio, and I can easily say that my Fernandes Sustainer guitar has some of the tones that I'm most proud of and most excited about. On my last two albums, if you listen to "Amagi Goe", "Ashita he no Sanka" and "Time to say Goodbye", all of that singing, screaming tone is coming out of my Fernandes.

The Fernandes Sustainer adds a whole new dimension to the way the guitar responds. I can get a beautiful soft attack like a flute, or the most screaming heavy metal feedback in existence.

The Fernandes Sustainer is a "must have" in the world of Sustainer units!

For controlled feedback and harmonic sustain, all roads lead to the Fernandes Sustainer!

Nothing else can do what a Fernandes Sustainer system does. It's unique! It's Great! Thanks Fernandes.

Rudolf Schenker / SCORPIONS

DannyLohner1
The Fernandes Sustainer is great for creating ambient textures that sound more interesting and organic than a synth would.

Danny Lohner / NINE INCH NAILS

AndreasKisser
The feeling of controlling the feedback on the guitar is amazing. The Fernandes Sustainer has opened huge doors to take Sepultura's music to a higher level.

Robert
Since using my Fernandes Sustainer, I have become the life and soul of any and every party. Guys look at me anxiously from corners of the room, while fawning bimbettes seek my opinions on the fetishisings of music's inherent and delineated meanings.
Robert Fripp / KING CRIMSON
AdrianBelew
Suddenly it's like holding a live wire in your hand. The guitar becomes alive. The Sustainer makes every note you hit sustain and I love the harmonic mode.
Adrian Belew / KING CRIMSON
SteveLukather
I love the thing, it’s really cool. It’s a great show biz tool as well as a musical tool and when I go up to that high octave it sounds like the hole of my C*** screaming as loud as it possibly can. The Fernandes Sustainer moves mountains.
Steve Lukather / TOTO
reeves_gabrels1
Since 1996, when I got my Fernandes Sustainer, I have not done a gig or a recording without it. It's made the electric guitar the living, breathing thing I've always wanted it to be.
Reeves Gabrels / DAVID BOWIE BAND
LeeRanaldo
As someone for whom feedback is the lifeblood, things have just improved dramatically with the advent of the Fernandes Sustainer. The first significant advance in guitar technology in a long time. Now I need not approach the amp for great sheets of sustain, and I can choose the tonal color as well. Fernandes guitars play great, that's why I've always used them...... they look great too
Lee Ranaldo / SONIC YOUTH
DuffMcKagan3
Finally, after coming off stage with the new Sustainer System...I can say 'Hey feedback, how does it feel to be my bitch?'
Duff McKagan / VELVET REVOLVER / ALICE IN CHAINS
Frank_Marino
The Fernandes Sustainer is the single most useful and satisfying invention that I have had the pleasure to use on an electric guitar. This thing works…period! For thirty years I moved mountains of gear around and built my own amps to get sustain like this, and even all of that didn’t come close to what I can get with this thing. For an electric psychedelic guitarist like myself, the Fernandes Sustainer doesn’t just add to my sound, it defines it.
Frank Marino / MAHOGANY RUSH
mike_c
The Fernandes Sustainer is unreal! Controlled feedback at the flip of a switch! Bend it, throw it or slide the sucker across the stage and it’s still going with great sound! Unreal.
Mike Clark / SUICIDAL TENDENCIES
DeanPleasants
The Sustainer guitar has opened a whole new world of fun for me. I use it on the clean tone for harmonic swells and freaky things with my space effects ok !!ooooh baby, look out!!
Dean Pleasants / SUICIDAL TENDENCIES / INFECTIOUS GROOVES
KennyHickey
The Sustainer is something that became necessary due the incessant problem of getting different feedback in different halls every night. Now I can get feedback in a lower or higher octave whenever I want to, even with a clean tone.
Kenny / TYPE O NEGATIVE
AlainJohannes
I haven’t been this excited about a guitar in a long time. The Sustainer system is amazing and is already unlocking sounds and ideas that were not physically possible before. My interest in Indian phrasing and wind instruments has finally found a channel in your guitars. Well done and thank you!
Alain Johannes / CHRIS CORNELL BAND / ELEVEN
SteveHackett
Thank you, Fernandes for finally making my dreams come true – if there is a god of sustain … you are it!
Steve Hackett / GENESIS
riggs_1
The Fernandes Sustainer guitar is the only guitar from which you can drink blood and simultaneously have control of feedback and sustain.
Riggs / SCUM OF THE EARTH / ROB ZOMBIE BAND
daniel_ash1
Playing an electric guitar without the sustainer is like strawberries without the cream.
Daniel Ash / LOVE and ROCKETS / BAUHAUS
DaveyJohnstone
The most startling sounds from an instrument that is also really enjoyable to play. The possibilities are endless, like the Fernandes Sustainer.
Davey Johnstone / ELTON JOHN BAND

Feedback is good.

paul_lear1
It has been a while since I have been excited about a guitar. It is a terrific instrument without the Sustainer, it really is. Turn the Sustainer on and it lives. The guitar is excited. It's like turning up the amp without the ear damage. No stress, no strain. Just turn on the SUSTAINER and let it drain.
Paul Leary / BUTTHOLE SURFERS / Producer
DavidLynch
The Fernandes Sustainer.....point it west and it keeps on keeping on.
David Lynch / FILM DIRECTOR

Right from the beginning, using the Fernandes Sustainer Guitars has opened up a whole new family of textures that I will be using in scoring television shows.
Mike Post / VAN HALEN PRODUCER / TELEVISION COMPOSER
steve_hunter1
I find it mysterious and uncanny that I feel exactly the same way Robert Fripp does about the Sustainer. Well, except for maybe that fetishist part.
Steve Hunter/ LOU REED / PETER GABRIEL / ALICE COOPER / TRACY CHAPMAN
Joe-Barresi
Plays great, feels great, and has so much sustain you can go out, have a bite, come back, and you’d STILL be hearing it.
Joe Barresi / PRODUCER / WEEZER, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, TOOL, BAD RELIGION
Chan-Kinchla
I have every pedal known to man, and getting sweet sustain short of kneeling in front of my amp has been a white elephant. Pedals only artificially recreate that type of sound and always come off weak. Finally I have controlled sustain coming directly from the strings where I can manipulate it smoothly and safely for everyone’s listening enjoyment. My Fernandes Sustainer guitar also looks badass which is very important as we all know.
Chan Kinchla / Guitar and Prettyboy for BLUES TRAVELER
ZimZum
The Fernandes Sustainer makes my guitar sing as if the note were coming straight from my soul. It's definitely a HI-FI creation in a lo-fi world.
Zim Zum
BruceRicherd
My Fernandes Sustainer guitar is an essential part of my musical signature.
Bruce Rickerd / CIRQUE DU SOLEIL
Lupus
The Fernandes Sustainer is pure voodoo magic. I don’t know how it works, but whatever it is, I like it! I don’t need to know all that tech stuff, with the team at Fernandes behind me, I know it sounds good, even when I have no clue how it all works.
Lupus / BLOOD HOUND GANG
AndresAGONY
The Fernandes Sustainer gives my soloing meaning and feel, it's also an amazing creativity booster!
Andres Jaramillo / AGONY / Dia De Los Muertos
MikeScott1
The Fernandes Sustainer gives you rich controlled sustain so thick and consistent you could almost sit on it.
Mike Scott / NEW POWER GENERATION

Insane Yet Controllable Sonic Madness at the Flip of a Switch. The Fernandes Sustainer Opens up a Whole New Door of Creativity.
