Absolutely fantastic
Old Murray 04.04.2020
Totally stoked on this pedal.
I bought this pedal to put at the end of my board to brighten, shape and control my tone throughout my delays/reverbs/modulations and various drives, not being pleased with my previous compressor.I simultaneously tried out three comps and this one won out by a landslide. Beyond its sturdy and well build quality, both inside and out, it just sounds fantastic. With most comps you will have a few issues where you will have to compromise somewhere. With the Pigtronix it is a non issue. You can achieve any sound you like. Ranging from plucky to smooth yet bright, from full on comp to just a sliver of beef. But the most important key here is its subtlety! At first it seems like nothing has been done to your sound but as you play your guitar you see it work its magic. No harshness, no overlapping feedbacks from trails and NO HISS! The sustain really is noiseless, which really is an achievement and contributes so much to the pedal. From the moment I turned it on and fiddled with it I knew exactly what to do and you can regain so much clarity without bartering with your other pedals that much.
Absolutely fantastic.
Thomann as usual is fast, clear and no hassle. Wish every company dealt with their costumers as they do.
Superb product, satisfied costumer.

Great addition for every pedalboard
Ilias K 11.04.2019
I was skeptical about whether I need a compressor on my pedalboard, but after a lot of search I decided to go with the philosophers tone and I don't regret it. I use it mostly for my clean tones and it adds a lot of clarity to the sound, while being quite transparent (at least in my opinion). You can go all the way to a seriously compressed tone if you need/want to. Moreover the sustain knob works wonders. One more plus is the size.. i mean it's really tiny and could fit in every board without consuming much space.

An improvement on the original
Anonymous 15.10.2016
I had the original Philosopher's Tone and loved it. Some of the time I used it as an 'always on' pedal to even out string volume and for some extra sparkle and grit, but it was a bit of a pain to power it at the full 18v for the best headroom.
This updated version is fantastic since it uses internal 18v power rails to boost your voltage from a standard 9v input. Combined with the smaller footprint, I think this makes it a must-buy for anyone looking for a mini compressor, and it can't be beat in this price range. The only thing it's missing is the grit control, but that's a tiny sacrifice to make since pretty much every guitarist that wants some dirt or drive already has a pedal they love for that anyway.
Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
