TC ForceField first impressions

Damian692, 03.06.2017
this is built rock solidly like a tank , controls are rugged and has the soft click switch (nice) . Has the promise of many years of use with little wear and tear. It's reassuring solidness is the first thing that hit me as being at odds with its very cheap price , some of the chinese made pedals are very flimsy and I've had several of them fail . I reckon you could use the forcefield to hammer in nails with :)

Apparently its based on ibanez cp-9 ( If I'm wrong blame google)

I currently use a wampler ego compressor which has a lot more controls than the forcefield , and is quite flexible as a result but I do spend time fiddling too many options at times.
I'm looking at putting together a quick grab and go board and the forcefield seems to be the contender . Its not perfectly quiet of course but not bad at all.
I tend to use compression as an always on effect for clean playing with single coil fenders and sometimes in front of overdrive/distortion to push them a bit harder with humbuckers/single coils.

I like the forcefield you get a LOT of pedal for your 49 euro, I'm giving serious consideration to selling on my wampler.

Solid Compressor

17.01.2017
Right from the start, I ordered the ForceField Compressor from pure interest. I wanted to try out if I can start with a Compressor something. That's why I stayed in a price range around 50¤. Here, the tc electronic seemed to me the most valuable.
The device stands here. It is valuable processed and makes a stable impression.
The foot switch does not lock, which I find personally super. Is there no clicking or unnecessary cracking.
Beware, the forcefield is bigger than I thought. In the photos he seemed to me smaller than he is in reality. This is at most a criterion for people who might want to install it on the board.

To the sound ...
I have unfortunately no real comparison and the problem with the Compressor in itself is that you often do not even notice that one is dazuggeschaltet.
However, I have been able to achieve nice results with little turning and rumprobing, where I thought, cool, I now simply let so. Of course you do not do it. The part is really absolutely intuitive. Is also always a taste question.
The Sustainregler does a very good job, here you can pimp your sound again if it is necessary. All in all, the Forcefield also allows you to use as a booster, whereby I would then other devices would prefer.

Unfortunately, and that could disturb many people, the thing rushes.
Not extreme (if one is in some humane controller positions), but still audible. I'm actually very sensitive, but live (radio / soul cover) it did not really bother me (as long as the drive pedals were out), also when practicing and checking in the Proberaum not. In the studio I could imagine that it is too much.

I tested it with the following guitars:

- Ibanez AR 420
- Neal Moser Stratocaster
- The Heritage H535

Over my old Mesa Boogie DC-5 combo.

Also in combination with Delays etc.

There is safety air upwards (but have never used a real Boutique Compressor, so no idea), but for 49¤ the forcefield is a very good pedal, with which one can have fun. Especially if you like me just times NEN Compressor would like to try. Man must also never forget that synonymous sometime the price range must be down, if you do not want to have too many compromises.
I'll keep him in any case.
