Electro Harmonix Soul Preacher

Compressor / Sustainer

Electro Harmonix has been known for decades as a good, original and still not an expensive pedal. With the Soul Preacher you get a very flexible, yet easily adjustable compressor / sustainer, sustain control adjusts the amount of sustain. Clean guitar and bass sounds benefit immensely, and the price is great!

Moyo. That's what compressor is all about, in my eyes. And this pedal has it.

I use this pedal as a clean tone compressor, funk banger, a subtle sustainer, and a boost before a fuzz for that stoner rock destruction.

+ Pros
+ Versatility TOGETHER with simplicity.
+ Tones.
+ Trusty EHX build.
+ Price. It's properly priced.

- Cons
- Noise, especially in larger volume settings, and when more gain on amp is applied. That said, compressors are surely know for raising the noise floor quite a bit, just by the nature of what they do.

Give your tone a distinct character of your choice with this little, but fat sounding machine.

Electro Harmonix Soul Preacher
Peter355, 01.08.2013
Great pedal, evens out volumes, kept it at the end of the chain, provided balance between volumes of pedals. I pushed distortion sounds a little on other pedals for solos. The Soul Preacher makes guitar playing enjoyable as you are not struggling with inconsistent levels and this helps your confidence when playing.

Compression with attitude!
Robert A. 571, 17.08.2013
I bought this unit to get a particular sound that I get from a Johnson J-station Amp modeller. The model was of a black face fender amp with a compressor. What I was after was a clean sound that is just about breaking up with a slight squash to it. The Electro Harmonix Soul Preacher gives a good 'compressor with attitude' sound. Set to the fast attack and with a small amount of squash it came quite close to the sound I was after. The only negative points of the Soul Preacher are the lack of a more varied attack setting and release time and quite a bit of noise when the pedal is on. The pedal is solidly built and should prove to be reliable in a gigging situation.

How could I live without it?
Nicolò, 25.01.2016
Seriously, a revolution in my pedalboard.

If you need to adjust the dynamics, this is the right pedal; it's very sensitive and you can adjust it to obtain the right sound in terms of attack and sustain, or just use it as a(n excellent) booster.
