Great for guitar and bass

I have been looking for a good compressor for years. I needed one that was compatible (and sounded good) with both guitar and bass, as I play both instruments regularly. After much research, and thanks largely to OVNILABS (website dedicated to analysing compressors in great detail) I decided on this pedal.

It has a very simple interface, two knobs and a switch, a very big LED and a footswitch, as can be seen in the pics. This does not mean that the pedal is at all limited however, as the range of sounds I've used it for is tremendous.

The volume knob affects the output volume of the pedal. As is common with 2-knob compressors, this is then used to set the level of gain, make-up or limiting on the input signal. Taking some time to find the unity level on this will make using this pedal much easier.

The sustain knob affects the threshold of the compressor, and has great headroom compared to other compressors I've tried. This headroom decreases if you use a lower-voltage power supply (the manual says that a 9v will run this pedal safely) though I've not tried this yet.

The overdrive on this pedal is provided by a germanium diode, and is applied using the "grit" switch. This sounds like a creamy smooth fuzz and I actually use it a lot more than I thought I would it sounds so good!

This pedal is best used as a peak limiter/sustain effect, though squashy compressed sounds are easy to achieve too.

I am very happy with this purchase, the box the pedal arrived in was heavily padded and the pedal comes with an 18v power supply, which is brilliant. I recommend this pedal heartily.

Grundsätzlich kann man eigentlich nicht meckern, das Gerät ist sehr gut verarbeitet und funktioniert einwandfrei. Mir persönlich allerdings fehlt ein Tone-Regler, der das Signal etwas auffrischt, welches leider etwas zu dumpf wird. Nicht wirklich schlimm, aber es fehlt mir doch plötzlich ein Teil der Höhen, vielleicht ist dies ja der Tatsache geschuldet, dass das Gerät absolut rauschfrei arbeitet im Gegensatz zu einem MXR Dynacomp oder Boss CS-3. Das mag beim Gebrauch für Slide nicht so schlimm sein, bei Funk-Licks oder Fingerpicking ist das wiederum nicht so toll. Der zusätzliche eingebaute Germanium-Verzerrer funktioniert im Zusammenspiel mit meinem Verstärker (Blackstar HT-5R) auch nicht wirklich überzeugend. So richtig fuzzt das nicht. Aber bekanntlich ist ja alles subjektiv und für irgendwen andern da draussen genau der Hit.

Ich für meinen Teil bin weiter auf der Suche nch dem goldenen Kompressor.
