The original Diamond Compressor was built to be a versatile 'guitar channel' a dynamics and tone shaping tool to front-end your effects chain much like the gain, compression and EQ channels used in traditional recording studio mixers. That was ten years ago, and now Diamond is releasing the sought-after follow-up - a more compact version of the original - the Comp Jr.

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.
• Post-compressor 'tilt' EQ provides a very musical tailoring of frequency response seamlessly transition from a darker jazz voicing to a bright jangle, with flat frequency response at the center detent position.
• Optimized gain staging and use of ultra low noise transistor and opamps in signal path for lowest possible noise and extended signal headroom.
• Premium audio components, including tight tolerance Panasonic PPS capacitors and metal film resistors.
• Top mounted jacks on a small enclosure for tight pedalboard layouts.
• 9V battery power, with standard 9V negative tip adapter ready.
• Bi-color LED provides visual indication of depth of compression and power.
• True bypass operation.

After using this for a few weeks I couldn't imagine my board without it. It brings such a nice boost to mids, and levels everything else out. You can add a touch of gain and have it breakup really well too. It makes finger style on a Strat sound beautiful.

Cette pedals est super facile à utiliser et fonctione comme un charme. Si vous voulez un son pro alors vous avez besoin de cette pédal. Avec cette pédal votre son devient linéaire et transparent comme sur un enregistrement pro. Surtout pour des passes de guitare clean. Vous pouvez laisser cette pédal toujours allumez.

I have too many comp pedals. I recently tried this one out and immediatley loved it. My board had been too crowded for a full size Diamond comp so I had a modded Dynacomp and Fuchs Royal Plush in rotation. As soon as this one came out I tried it and was super pleased. It can be an "always on" pedal on a lower volume gig. At low comp settings and juicing the front end of the amp a bit it's an excellent clean boost. The tilt EQ is super musical and can help tame/dial in a harsh backline amp if you're on an unfamiliar rig. Works great as a pre or post drive boost too.
