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.

Control over clean compression and sustain

Cherra, 27.03.2017
The new micro version of the well-known Philosopher's Tone from Pigtronix does not disappoint. It presents as difference with his elder brother (already discontinued) that its current input is of 9V instead of 18V (makes the conversion inside) and that it lacks of the distortion of the original (thing that for nothing it demeans).

The design is exquisite, with knobs rounded very comfortable and pleasant to the touch. The construction is compact and solid, you can step on it without fear. It comes packaged with a cork that protects the knobs and the switch, which you can use to protect it on your pedalboard if you are a careful person.

The sound is crystal clear, for lack of hours, my first impressions is that it has quite a range of compression. It reminds me of Xotic's SP compressor in terms of sound, and has the advantage of having sustainer. The sustainer is similar to Boss CS-3 but much cleaner, it just adds noise to the signal when it is turned on. I have it located at the beginning of the chain of pedals and works perfectly in clean as with different distortions.

Although it is an expensive pedal, I find it worth what it costs. A priori I would recommend.
