Rivera Sustain Shaman Compressor and Sustain Pedal at a Glance:
Studio-quality compression circuitry
Paul Rivera Sr. was adamant about only using top-notch analog circuitry and components for the Sustain Shaman. You get low-noise operation with amazing headroom, meaning your tone won’t be mangled as with some lesser compressor/sustainer pedals. In fact, the Sustain Shaman’s Blend control lets you mix your dry, uncompressed signal with the compressed signal, allowing you to retain the dynamics of your playing while getting extra sustain – and no matter how you blend your signals, your tone will always sound as it should.
Switchable 2-channel operation
While most sustainers only give you two options, on or off, the Rivera Sustain Shaman lets you set up two separate, switchable compression settings. Set up just the right amount of subtle compression for general use, and have a long sustain at the ready for solos. You’ll especially love the Sustain Shaman if you gig out live with multiple guitars – have one setting fine-tuned for your single-coil pickups and one for your humbucking pickups, and you’ll be ready for anything!
Super Sustain mode for near-infinite sustain
When you want increased sustain that still tapers off in a reasonable amount of time, you’ll be sticking with the standard operation of the Sustain Shaman. When you want endless sustain, just flip the Super Sustain switch. Your notes will ring out loud and clear as long as you want – you’ll most likely get tired of holding the note before it ever dies out. Plug into your favorite tube amp, crank it to overdrive, and turn on the Sustain Shaman’s Super Sustain mode, and you’ll get all of the gloriously controllable feedback you could ever ask for.
