by Ron Smart from Monument, ColoradoWanted a way to create a really solid tone for my set up and had zero clue how to do it. After a bunch of costly trial and error on my own, went to Sweetwater where my Sales Engineer, Greg Savino, su... read more [+]ggested getting the Philosopher's Tone and combining with an Ecstasy Red Overdrive Pedal. I was able to get a great tone out of my setup without blasting the volume through my amp, (Made my wife extremely happy.). Sweetwaters Sales Engineers, (Greg Savino is mine, did I say that?), are the best. Greg helped me purchase a recording set up and these pedals. They listen carefully to what you have as far as a your rig and tailor a solution that will work for you. Thanks Greg! close [-]

by Mike R. from Warren, RIWow - This is the best compressor out there. You also get distortion and a treble EQ. Just try it and you'll wonder how you ever got along without it. GREAT PEDAL and worth the price!!!!

The grit is not really a distortion in my opinion ... read more [+]but does provide some nice color to the tone. I gave it a 4.5 because I would have prefered this pedal in a portrait format instead of landscape. The cable input and output orientation is a little annoying. close [-]
