I bought one and it lasted a day. I e-mailed rocktron that night and by 9:00 am the next morning I got a reply. I told them it quit and they sent me a new one immediatly and told me to keep the old one. I do electronic repair and I will keep it for spare parts..... Anyway, this thing I beleive, is a great design. It does not Squash. It boosts, then as the chord starts to fade it keeps it level without noticable attenuation. There is no tone loss. There maybe some quality control problems with componets and such, but the theory behind it is excellent. The aluminum box I like. It is a great looking and usable design. There is room in the unit to do repair and mods if a guy wanted to. Inside the box is one board that contains everything but the switch which mounts to the chassis. Cool. Pots can be replaced fairly easy along with resistors. The switch detaches from the board by way of connector.The jacks are board mounted. Great design.

Tried this pedal for a few days. Right out of the box had a strong electrical smell unplugged. Plugged in the smell was worse. Compression was okay when it worked, but....... Only worked with guitar or bass volume wide open. Several times, the sound completely disappeared then mysteriously reappeared moments later. VERY flukey. Sent it back.

Hissssssss

When OFF - sucks your sound out badly - unusable.When ON - Hiss, hiss, hiss, but excellent compression, beefs up your sound with plenty of punch and warmth.Couldn't use it on accoustic-electric - too much hiss, even at the lowest settings. Didn't even try it on the electric after hearing the hiss.

junk

By DIsgruntled 1

from COlumbus, Ohio

I played this with a Fender Tele thru a Fender Hot Rod tube amp and a Peavey Studio Pro using all the settings I could. It picks up radio signals and blasts them thru the amps, robs the use of the volume control on the guitar, Its either wide open or nothing and practically eliminates the sound of the B& E strings.

Tone sucker!

By pietro-9_IBf

from Western PA

It sounds okay when on, but when off it totally robs you of tone and presence. This makes it totally unusable unless you are going to engage it all the time. I also found that it did a worse job on guitar than my old one knob compressor.

best i've ever played

By Beast-BWsjf

from Fayetteville, NC

Of every single compressor pedal I've ever used this is the best. I bought it on a leap of faith and I wasn't disappointed. Perfect for many styles and applications. Doesn't matter if you play electric, acoustic, or bass. I even tryed it on a keyboard and again sounded awsome. A great buy at any price.

Best I've Used

By Wayne-3wWAF

from St. Louis, MO

I like this pedal more than even the MXR Dyna Comp. With the Dyna-Comp, you get a really nice jangle, but there's no way to manage the "attack." This provides that control. Worth every penny, and by far my favorite compressor I've used in almost 20 years of playing.

Great Compression Pedal

By GoAlterBridge

from Mechanic Falls, ME

This compressor is amazing. I got it today, and it does everything I want it to. The knobs are easy to use, and the pedal has great tone. I can't hear to much of a difference between the attack fast or slow, but it does add some punchiness when you have it down; something I like. I rated it 4.5 because 5 is absolutely perfect. No flaws. Nothing is perfect, but this is about as close as it gets. There is some slight noise when you have a little overdrive or distortion and you turn the sustain up, but it's minor. Overall, this is a wonderful pedal, and you should buy it.

Nice Pedal

Cool pedal. For less noise when using a heavy distortion pedal I plug this pedal in first ahead of all other pedals so their signal doesn't go thru it. If not its going to get noisy. Good Toy for you stop box collection.

Awesome Pedal

By Petey204

from Buffalo,NY

This pedal has greatly improved the tone that I get from my Peavey Bandit. It provides endless sustain and makes solos so much smoother and chords so much fatter. The only downside is that when used with heavy distortion, it creates a lot of background noise, so I would recommended a noise gate if you are going heavy.
