Recording studios often use rackmount 'vocal channels'
- a mic preamp, compressor, and EQ all in one unit as a front end for vocal recording.
The Diamond Compressor is our take on a 'guitar channel'
- a dynamics and tone shaping tool for live and studio use - with low-noise, ultra-linear
signal buffering, smooth opto-based compression, and a versatile 'tilt' EQ that musically
shifts overall frequency balance.
All in a user-friendly 3-control package - just Comp, EQ and Volume.

Features:
- Vactrol opto-isolator variable resistance path as used in
high-end studio compressors for smooth attack and decay
characteristics while preserving initial signal transients.
- Premium audio components, including 2% polypropylene
capacitors,1% metal film resistors and a pro audio grade
opamp (our signal path opamp alone costs 8 to 10 times
what the industry norm uses).
- Post-compressor 'tilt' EQ provides a very musical
tailoring of frequency response - seamlessly transition
from a darker jazz voicing to a brighter jangle,
with flat frequency response at the center detent position.
- Double filtering stage in side chain to eliminate
low frequency modulation while preserving fast
compression response.
- Dual AC capacitive coupling paths for improved
transient response.
- Bi-color LED provides visual indication of depth
of compression.
- True bypass signal path.
- Battery or standard negative tip 9V DC
adapter operation, can be powered from
9 to 24 V negative tip.

Really love this pedal. I play Strats, Tele and. ED 330 with P90s and always have this pedal on. Main amp is a Supro Thunderbolt but goes well with my Blues Jr too. Cleans are better and my boats and drive pedals would great too! Can?t say enough for the simplicity and sound. Try one!

If I ever have to use only one pedal this is the one. I went from basement to stage with this pedal.I never thought in a million years that a compressor would ever be beneficial, was I wrong. Try this pedal and it will open doors and your mind to unlimited possibilities of wonderful sound you can achieve on any plane.

I was really blown away by this pedal! I had never gave much importance to using a compression pedal, just thought it wouldn't do much for me. Boy, was I wrong! My main amp is a Vox AC15c1 and the sound just seem to come alive and to my ears, removed some of the harsh sounds that I found annoying. The pedal is very well made, top quality and I would highly recommend it be on everybody's board!!

I heard this for the first time and was completely shocked at what a little pedal with 3 knobs could do. I've tied it to my electric guitars and my acoustic and it sounds awesome.

This isn't a compressor that squishes sound. If you play country or finger picking this compressor is probably not for you, but the sound of this pedal is amazing. Use it with a quality tube amp you are in tone heaven. It evens out the sound and makes it shimmer. For the price, I doubt you could find a better unit; hell, even the pricier compressors out there don't sound as good. Worth every penny.
