Almost Unbelievable...
Edgar Blackdagger, 13.06.2019
I needed a compressor for 3 uses:
-as a country guitar "spanky" effect
-as an always on bass compressor
-as outboard gear for recording and mixing.

I found it extremely pleasing at everything, I've used it on
active 5-string bass, fretless hollow 4-string bass,
el.guitars tuned from C standard to high A standard,
and recording vocals and drums.

The Attack knob does wonders and along with the sustain knob
you can have from mild, really spanky compression to ironing limiting.

Unfortunately unless you have the sustain knob past 9 o'clock,
the level knob won't actually boost the volume, so you can't
have it set to a very slight compression without volume loss.
Well, it's not a problem for me, a lot of classic and more expensive compressors have the same issue.

Finally, it doesn't color the tone much, I find that it only reduces the really extreme and harsh treble you'd never want, also it does have the feeling of a real, hardware compressor, most of the times in the studio I prefer it to any plugin.

I'm definitely buying another one!

First compressor pedal for me, really did not expect the influence of a compressor pedal on overall sound. Incredible quality/price compressor pedal by TC Electronics.

Simple yet effective
Nik93, 20.01.2020
The Dials are very straight forward but they all have an impact on the tone, its a great deal what you pay for, as the tonal quality is very good. I enjoy these simple pedals as I don't have to switch around a long time to find my sound, with this straight forward pedal I can dial in my sound quickly and it will get me what I want. For those that want a bit more tonal variety and features may have to look somewhere else, however it is a great bang for your buck!

Forcefield! A well deserved name!
Red Baroness , 04.03.2019
I did not buy it because it was just affordable. I am glad for this but it was the brand that has already proven its worthiness to me with other effects that made me look at what they offered as compressor.
The Forcefield deserves indeed its name!
It is pro equipment and nothing else!
The 3 knobs controls are plenty enough for most people to use this compressor, with a truly satisfying output.
Another superb tc electronic product!
Does this company loves what it does and loves making it affordable? I really believe now that they do!
