The DC9 gives you an incredible compressed sound in one tough, easy-to-use stomp box.
Dynamics play an important role in music. They help to convey emotion, whether it’s a sultry blues solo or the unrelenting gallop of unfettered metal. But uncontrolled dynamics can take all your best intentions and turn them into so much, well…mush. That’s where compression comes in, softening loud sounds and boosting low signal levels to keep everything more uniform. So, a compressor’s main job is to make every note the same volume.
Ever notice how some strings on your guitar or bass sound louder than others? This is partly due to physics. Strings with lower mass just don’t put out as much volume as the heavier ones. When used properly, a compressor makes all of the strings the same volume. Compressors are also great for slap-style bass players, making thumb slaps, string pulls and muted notes all the same volume, for an extremely percussive effect.
Just twist the dedicated Output dial to determine how much volume you want it to kick out, then adjust the Sensitivity dial to determine the level where everything from delicate strumming to aggressive picking will be heard with equal presence. Whether you're ready to tear up the countryside with some down-home chicken-pickin' or melt faces with a searing metal solo, the DC9 will change your idea of ideal tone. The blue status LED tells you when the DC9 is on, while the true hardware on/off switch maintains the highest quality signal integrity in bypass mode. You can power it with a 9V battery or a DC power supply (not included).
When your music is too good to be ignored, play it through the Dynamics Compressor DC9. Your sound will be impossible to miss!

Comments about Behringer DC9 Compressor Pedal:
I bought this compressor when I lost my old MXR. I like Behringer gear and this was very inexpensive so I thought I would give it a try.This thing is a tone vampire and sucks up your tone. I play a variety of guitars but lately I have been using a Les paul and a VOX VT30 amp.Now I know some will say that the the VOX has a built in compressor in the effects but I am not happy with it. If you leave This Behringer on all the time you can adjust your rig to compensate and it will be fine but if you want to use it as more of an effect (like turning it on during a lead)it will thin out your tone a lot. I am quite comfortable with compressors and use them often in my home studio and my PA system so I know what they can do when working well. This pedal has it's own sound and for live use, it's just too unpredictable.I wanted a pedal that I could turn on to give a little boost in volume and sustain without changing tone while I play a lead.This wasn't good for that purpose.
On the other hand I bought the Behringer CS400 pedal compressor for the same price and it works exactly like I wanted.Great sustain, nice clean signal boost and no tone changes when you turn it on. Just nice even compression.
