An improvement on the original
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.

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.

Really nice pedal to enhance your tone . The blend feature allows you to retain a lot of dynamics . Sustains for ages too!

simple and good
Piotr Krupa, 27.11.2018
I like it. I think it's a good compressor as far as small pedal compressors go. Simple to use, doesn't produce noise.
