There's an "effects loop" in the Sustainiac Model C for just exactly 
this sort of thing.  The loop only affects the signal fed back into 
your instrument, so you can put in filters (Maniac Music mentions 
that a wah pedal works well) or delays in order to better 
control/manipulate the resonant frequency of the feedback.

Actually a rather nice little bit of kit.  I've got one I use on my 
Chapman Stick (some weird caveats there) and really like it.
