Very Impressive
07.09.2015
Of all of the Harley Benton Pedals that I've had time to play, this is probably the most impressive. This is a very impressive compressor. It handled the vintage pickups in my American Tele and the super high output hot-rails in my strat very well.

The sound is the classic sustainer type compression, the variable attack time being very useful to help shape picking dynamics. It's not the cleanest compression I've heard, but any colouration I could hear seemed warm and very complimentary to my single coil guitars. I've yet to try this pedal with my bass rig.

Build quality is very impressive, and not just for the price point. The enclosure is high quality die-cast aluminium and is well finished (though the graphics are a little cheesy). Having had a snoop inside I was pleased to find a quality 3PDT footswitch in a true bypass configuration. The pots are pretty decent too, as is the quality of the off board wiring. The construction quality of this pedal is easily the match of some boutique manufacturers.

Great "bettermaker"
MattiasG, 23.04.2014
For its price this little stomp is unmatched.
Its hard to really put into words what a comp-pedal does for your soundpicture, but all i can say is that this adds "more" of what makes your sound sweet.

Pedals in general usually adds both more good/bad at an even ratio, but since this little stompbox has (first) true bypass and (second) a very good effectbalance makes it in my ear feel like it adds what its supposed to do without amplifying unnecesary noise and ambient trash.
Simply put: its a bettermaker =)

The pricetag itself is an invitation to try it out and now with some extended workout i cannot do anything but recommend this sturdy little green pedal!

Get one!

Nothing supernatural for a little money
RoRux, 05.07.2020
I use the pedal to enrich the clean sound on the guitar. The pedal can be used as a booster, so there is a Level control. Personally, I almost didn't hear the impact on the sound of the Attack handle. But the Sustain regulator doesn't work badly. The build is normal. When switching, there are no extraneous sounds.

Decent / Great for the price
26.01.2017
I'm using this between my Mexi Strat and my Vox Lil' Night Train amp. It's a very "bright" combination, and this compressor helps attenuate this a bit. The effect is very subtle, you'll have to play around with the controls a bit and see how it affects the sound to get an idea of what it really does. Also works great as a boost for when you need that extra oomph.

+ Sturdy build
+ True bypass
+ Versatile (can be used as a boost)

+/- Subtle, transparent compression (Some might favour this, others might want compression that is a bit more "coloured", depends on the individual preferences)

Minor cons:
- Mediocre switch (for comparison, my TC Electronic Ditto looper has much smoother action and very quiet "click" when stepping on it)
- I've seen prettier pedals :)

Does a great job for the price, though maybe not the best introduction to the realm of compression for beginners. Overall, a good product for a bedroom player as myself.
