Compression is perhaps one of the most useful and versatile effects available to any guitarist who is interested in improving their tone. The purpose of the Compressor pedal is primarily to allow you to modify the sustain and attack of your guitar sound. Using classic variable gain techniques, the Compressor will provide masses of clean sustain, which you can utilize whatever your style. The Compressor pedal senses the level of the incoming guitar signal and, as the signal level decays, the gain of the internal circuitry is boosted to provide extra level and hence sustain. The attack control modifies the dynamic response of the guitar signal (the effect of plucking a string) and allows you to achieve a range of effects from rounded and mellow to percussive and funky.

The Compressor also features and Emphasis control which allows you to assign compression and target the frequencies you want to compress. This means that you can, for example, tighten up or compress your bass notes and let your treble notes ring out.

Controls:

- Emphasis control
- Volume control
- Attack control
- Compression control

Features

I was steered to this pedal by a friend and he highly recommended it. SO I took the plunge. It is a great value. I use mine in a Praise and Worship setting at our church. One of my "always on" pedals. It just brings some nice clarity and liveliness to my tone and makes my overdrives jump to life. Are there better compressors out there? Sure, but at what price? I am quite content with mine...and my tone really suffers without it. If you have never used a compressor, you really need to research them as they are not the easiest pedals to gauge...they are subtle...but obvious. A little experimenting and twiddling then wow, once you hear the difference...you are hooked.

as with all pedals...they are all subjective to what you like and what you are using them for. I really like the way this compressor works on my board. Adds a nice sparkle. Great as a boost too. Quite versatile. Highly recommended.

Best dynacomp like pedal. It colour your sound the way you want it, has more control than the original dynacomp and is less noisy.
