The aim of this great compressor/limiting amplier is slightly different than your usual compression pedal. While traditional compressors will give you an added sustain when playing, this pedal (along with the Bassist Limiting Amplifier) do not add any sustain, but give a remarkably clear and pure transparancy while not compromising your tone at all. A main effect of this is that it will create an extremely low amount of noise. This saves your speakers from distorting and saves you from any unwanted clipping noise. A super hi-fi amplified tone which will only enhance your sound.
