RE: Sustainer

I just read the mail about the Sustainer. Allen Hoover built me a unit a 
couple of years ago called the SustainMan with a seperate box (and 
powersupply) for my Stick. Works great. Since the Stick doesn't have a 
I need a box to store the print.

Is it possible to power this thing via perhaps a stereo guitar lead/

and how much for the unit ?
and can you fit it yourself or do you have to send your guitar off to
have it fitted ?
I use an Ebow most of the time. I always got the impression that the
sustainer was a little weak in terms of its attack.
I'd appreciate people's experience in this area.
By the way the Kyma system is monstrously powerful. I've got loops
firing off in all directions - literally - I think I'm in love!
