Sweetwater Advice

  • Nick LaMendola

    Admittedly it took me a while to figure out how to use this compressor. The controls are apparently labeled by and for the British consumer, but once I realized that "slope" meant ratio and "compress" meant threshold, I was loving this box. At any setting, no matter how hard I drove it, the pedal improved my guitar's response. It made me want to tear at the strings just to feel the warmth of the opto compression squeezing my signal into fantastic shapes. I really fell in love with the sound of this unit, especially for clean tones on the neck pickup of my Strat - I gave it all I had and it kept up with my playing. The rugged construction and variable input power section (9-18V AC or DC) make it a no brainer for your pedalboard. Buy this today!

    great addition to your pedalboard

    I have had this pedal for several months now and just love the flexibility. It can go from very transparent and sweet...leveling nicely and adding nothing all the way to very apparent adding infinite sustain and a little pick attack. This little guy has way better sounding opto comp than what I expected from a relatively inexpensive pedal. As with any compressor if you add too much "effect" with it you will raise your noise floor but even with a studio full of gear, this has become my comp o' choice for guitar... I sometimes use it on bass tracks too on the front end.

    Adds life to the dullest signals

    Beautiful sounding compressor! Very transparent and great headroom at 12V. Adds life to the dullest signals. Highly recommended for a rackmountable alternative.
