SPOTLIGHT REVIEW
VERIFIED BUYER
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us.
Sound: It really (for lack of a better word) de-craps my playing. I'm not saying it's a insta-shredding machine, but it helps. I can get some pretty funky sounds out of it. I LOVE playing me some Skynyrd with this, gets that perfect Sweet Home Alabama sound. Also helps solos cut through the mix when playing songs like Mama I'm Coming Home. Gives pinch harmonics more presence in songs like Scream Aim Fire. Gives taps more presence in songs like Crazy Train or One. It also adds a WHOLE lot of sustain especially in areas I needed like the last note of the Nothing Else Matters guitar solo. That note lasted forever! Feature: Price was GREAT. The sustain is amazing. The compression is awesome especially when you switch from single notes to chords and then the chords are WAY too loud. Plus it adds a whole new dynamic sound. The 4 knobs do their job to help you fine tune your sound. Ease of Use: It's pretty easy to use. No real need to use the manual unless you're gonna use batteries to power this. Just gotta use your ears to find the sound that you want, simple as that. :) MY personal setting is Level - 3 o' clock Tone - 11 o' clock Attack - 1 o' clock Sustain - 3 o' clock Great sound, distorted or clean. Quality: No cosmetic blemishes. It's made of plastic, but that's to keep the price down. The sound quality is pretty great, especially for this price. Value: I've had this thing for a couple of days now and it's gotten a LOT of use from me. Especially because I hate the fact that my chords are so much louder than single notes (i.e. Good Riddance - Green Day) Manufacturer Support: I haven't needed any support yet but I called them inquiring the warranty and they were very polite. The Wow Factor: It's pretty sexy if you ask me. (; Overall: I wont say it's the BEST compressor out there. But for it's price, it's unbeatable. If you have the money, then by ALL MEANS get the Pigtronix Philosopher's Tone. But this thing is AMAZING!

Overall: I used to own this compressor. I sold it to a guitarist who didn't like it very vuch. I'm buying one or two of them again for keyboard and program use. (I like my autocom 2-channel rack compressor also.) The sound is quiet and nearly transparent- a little "glossy, creamy, pretty". I think less of it as a sustainer, especially compared to Electro-Harmonix's Soul Preacher (of which I own two), but this is quieter, smoother and cheaper, more to my general liking. it's decently built, cheesy knobs and all. I't won't likely be anyone's dream compressor, but when one can use less than the ideal, it never hurts to have a couple in your effects collection.

Overall: I do not normally use a compressor, but I got this because of the sustain feature. I am still tweaking the comp part and may be able to use it. The sustain feature alone is a value and is great for soloing & leads.
