Very Impressive
Anonymous 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.

EDIT 2019 not happy at all
Dapapa 09.08.2016
This pedal is extremely subtle to the point of not being sure if it even adds anything to the sound. Maybe my sound gets slightly more Hi-fi with it but it sure does not change the guitar sound. This is not a compressor pedal. Its not even a sustain pedal. Even the attack is so subtle Im not sure what to call it. Maybe can be used as a clean boost pedal because one can crank the Level on this thing.

EDIT 2019; since then I have got myself a Ross style Compressor pedal and this HB Dyna Comp went out of the window!!! The Ross style comp is an actual comp pedal and you CAN HEAR all you do with the knobs, especially the Mix knob where I can blend in dry signal as much as I want to (or not at all). This Harley Benton Dyna Comp is a waste of money as you cant hear any difference no matter what you do with the knobs (except the Level knob). Save that cash and get an actual compressor that works.

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!

Subtle, not for extreme sustain
Reeve yew. 21.11.2021
I used it for years on my board to feed an octave pedal a better signal. Added some sustain too I think. But very subtle. Great but no for slide etc
