Joemeek's studio-quality compressor—now in a stompbox.

The floorQ is basically a Joemeek Optical Compressor in a pedal. After realizing so many guitarists and bassists were playing through their studio gear, Joemeek put its sought-after compressor in a convenient guitar pedal that's more practical for live work.

The floorQ also boasts a high-impedance, JFET-input, Class-A preamplifier with an Input Level control, so even with the compressor switched out, the compression pedal makes an excellent front-end and level matcher for all types of guitar amps.

Another useful feature is that it will run on just about any power supply (though it does include a standard 12V wall wart). You can plug in anything that gives anywhere from 9V to 18V AC or DC and the floorQ doesn't care!

Features
  • Joemeek's Optical Compressor in an easy-to-gig pedal format
  • Input, Slope, Output, Compress, Attack, and Release knobs
  • High-impedance, JFET-input, Class-A preamplifier with an Input Level control

Now you can take Joemeek's compressor on the road! Order the floorQ now.

      Comments about Joemeek FloorQ Compression Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I read about this pedal on a bunch of forums and decided to try it out. I could not be more pleased with my tone. I use it as the first pedal in my signal chain, before OD and then EQ, I use mild/medium compression and leave it on all the time, it has done wonders to my guitar tone. Well balanced and cleans up the signal, I highly recommend it. Pedal is extremely quiet and adds no coloring to your tone, not a bad setting could be found. Will never sell pedal a true keeper. Enjoy!!

      Comments about Joemeek FloorQ Compression Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Must be one of the best compressors I have used. Maybe only beaten by the Empress product for electric uses. At least what I have tested. This pedal though works great on acoustic also. Preamp is excellent for this form factor.
      It is very transparent. With reasonable settings you wouldn't know it was on until you turned it off and then you would miss it. Really keeps the tone of the instrument and amp/effects chain.
      The one issue I can see with this pedal is the size. It does take up some fair amount of space.
      As opposed to a previous reviewer which had some issues with his board's power supply, I have the Voodoo Lab 4x4 and it has not had issues driving this pedal. Neither do the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2+ and the Mondo (on my other boards).

      Great sound but quirky

      Comments about Joemeek FloorQ Compression Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This is a high fidelity unit.. very transparent and when on is as quiet as can ever be expected. I ended up liking this as a dynamics enhancer more than the actual compression.. the preamp portion sounds really, really good.. especially with the right amount of compression. Here is a couple quirks.. they proudly say that this unit works with any power supply 9-18 volts ac or dc. It comes with a 12v supply which I originally wasn't going to use.. but I've tried 9v supplys, 12 volt off my Mod-Tone Pedal Power supply and they all made this pedal act strangly.. every 10 seconds it would 'motorboat' .. with the led also visibly fluctuating in intensity.. then it would be fine. NOW with the included 12V power supply it works perfectly.Second quirk is that, while for bass guitar it is really cool .. for guitar not so much so ( in my opinion ) the pedal definitely compress' the lowere frequencies quicker than the treble frequencies. so it your looking for a nice squish in the treble end.. the lower end tends to be compressed too much. When this happens .. there is some pretty ugly pumping going on. But .. the unit does sound really good with the preamp and fairly mild compression. I'm keeping it cause it improves my tone but not necessarily for being my perfect compressor.

      Green is good

      By Tone Obsessed

      from York, PA (nowhere)

      Comments about Joemeek FloorQ Compression Guitar Effects Pedal:

      This is a great pedal that hasn't gotten much attention do to it's lack of brand recognition among your garden variety gear-head. Among stomp box compressors this box is the most versatile and quietest I've used. You can use it as a tone inhancer to add sustain to your signal or you can ramp up the controls and get a pretty decent squash, or simply dial it in somewhere in between; and this without adding much if any hiss to you signal. I've got the Keeley unit everybody raves about and, although that's a pretty good pedal, this Meek box has it beat (although it's bigger and you can't use a battery in it; not really a downside as I see it, although it might be for some). The Joemeek is a little pricey, but, as always, you get what you pay for. The sound quality is great and the build quality is even better. Definitely a go-to box for those looking to squeeze all they can out of their instrument. A solid 5 all the way.

      Excelent pre-amp/compressor

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Joemeek FloorQ Compression Guitar Effects Pedal:

      After going through a lot of reviews and sound samples and research i finally bought this compressor unit and it is truly awesome. The pre-amp in it by itself solved all of my tone problems, and the compressor part is super as well. With all 4 controlls present you get really shape your sound and tune in the exact specifications necessary for your guitar. great unit
