    My first compressor. Works as advertised. Good sustain. Increases the presence nicely. Thanks

    This is a great sounding pedal, but you have to make sure you are using it to it's full potential. It runs best at 18 volts, not nine. Also the blend control is labeled Compression, which can be confusing. The compression is labeled sustain but that isn't unusual since many others like Keeley call i…

  • Great sustain

    Crazy good sustain but rolled off the highs just a smidge too much for me. No noise unless at extreme levels.I love that there's a blend function. Grit is pretty ok but I wish it was a footswitch. Very transparent for the price but does add some color.

  • Very glad I purchased this

    I wanted to simplify my compression, I'd never played one of these, but it is great. The "grit" portion is meh, but the compression itself is fantastic and simple. Can sustain for days too, which I love, and has tons of head room for boosting.

    Amazing device. Kinda sucks that it NEEDS to run on 18v to reach its true limiting potential; I used it on 9v and got this weird clipping distortion. A Truetone voltage doubler solved that issue, though.
