    Compressor with a few filters that color the sound much. One approach sometimes slight distortion in certain configurations.
    I think c is the analog (or optical?), Handmade in France!
    Jack jack, true bypass

    UTILIZATION

    Simple configuration, two knobs, two LoCut filters and two colors that have their own control. We can therefore mix filters and colors!

    SOUND QUALITY

    Very effective indeed, it's hard to get through on because the sound of the single amp seems more bland.
    I use a Stratocaster classic player 60 from Mexico who is armored. I believe the shield is highly recommended when you push the volume of the pedal.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two years and if I had to have a pedal that would be it. It is very versatile and extremely effective. However I have not tried other before buying: combo Made in France, the look and the fact that the-M-I in his pedalboard have finally convinced me (yes I know). It is also difficult to find therefore not clear the esayer there some nice demo videos.
    The object is expensive but aparait as very solid. The default was there before to connect the adapter, it seems been corrected at least I did not on my copy.

    I'm no expert in this, I think all information is available on the site Celmo.

    This is an analog compressor.

    Note that the plug is very key and a cable "standard" may be inappropriate.

    Other than that, it's all good: a switch to activate the compressor, with a choice of 3 Filters ("flat" = transparent, and two others that cleave low) selectable via a small switch and a switch to activate the boost (only usable with the compressor on), with 3 more possible filters (flat = slight crunch without too much color, brown = slightly scooped, and purple is supposed to imitate the AC30 it seems to me (to take with tweezers), but that is very showy soon as bass disappear almost completely).

Too bad the rate boost is not adjustable.
    And two buttons, one for setting the compression ratio, and the other for the output volume.

    A "true bypass" to top it off. (But this pedal is better than that, cf. Next item)

    Small problem: the LED indicating that the boost is activated only works when the compressor is activated. Result: it may happen that starts the compressor and the boost is activated without anyone knowing! A little annoying ... But hey, when you let the compressor on 99% of the time like me, no worries!

    UTILIZATION

    I use it at the beginning of my chain effect (directly after my guitar so), which is the position recommended by the manufacturer. Indeed, although true bypass, this pedal reduces acute losses (even disabled) if your chain is long indeed. A very important point. It remains very clear (we note that once activated, the harmonics are much more present, giving a more flattering. Very slight staining on the whole, but widely tolerated).

    The manual is quite brief, but clearly explains the various features.

    Only complaint: the exit rate is very low. (Depending on the compression ratio, but I'm roughly between one third and half of the race of the button to keep a subtle but sufficient compression) Never mind the trendy guitars, I have to put the volume to 3/4 for the same output level that without Celmo! In his clear, it does not pose a problem, but for its saturated, it can significantly reduce the gain and leave a nasty crunch where we expected a big overdrive. Boring. Especially since over the knob is high, and the breath is present (but still relatively reasonable though). However, we soon got used to, but it's still bad for a pedal of this quality.

    [for information, i use several guitars: mainly a washburn n4, mounted with sh1 with output moderated, and bill & becky l500xl which is very very nasty, but also a squier classic vibe telecaster 50's with microphones simple alnico 3 , which are far from being beasts of power, and a bc rich warlock with humbucker gfs crunchy pat fat pat and it seems to me. and that is the problem with all these guitars, so i do not think it is a matter of output level of the microphone.]

    SOUND QUALITY

    The compressor is very good job, without adding too breathless. For me it suits me perfectly. I tried some other cheaper models, but none had convinced me. It is very transparent and natural. For my part I always use it in position "flat", others do not pleasing me more than that.

    When the boost, it's perfect for a nice crunch very natural. Of happiness in a box (sardine)! Again my preference is for the "flat", but the others are nice sometimes.
    I use an Electro Harmonix LPB1 to add a little gain if necessary, which can extend its range somewhat.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Bought nearly a year ago, when I started to build my pedalboard, I have no desire to change. It makes the job very well for which I took, and some other models that I could try I had not convinced more than that.

    The new price is a bit high, but used a compressor that is worth the cost. (I had set myself a budget of € 100 and € 135 for FDPinclus I have not found anything better)

    It allows me to leave feedback pretty easily if necessary, is very transparent and keeps me from altering my signal due to cable length. What you ask for!?

For the compressor, I was especially interested in the effect SUSTAIN, and I think it is not sufficient as sustain, for what I hoped. Otherwise, it cuts pretty well the dynamics of his guitar and I tend to use less and less. Mainly use it only on single micro.
    The correct one can activate in addition to the compressor is a potent effect, it provides a more sensitive.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Used since August 2011.
    I have tried other aps models before buying it but I have many (months) foiné on the internet for reviews on different products and watch the demos (youtube. ....).
    The +: the correct
    The -: not enough or too deréduction sustain the momentum
    Q / P very correct.
    That is quite a serious case and that is quality. It's just that I can be expected that sth is not done what it is made.
    I would do aps necessarily the choice, I would try more true.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Effective is the term which is: go in store to try to understand what was meant. I use between a Telecaster and a Vox AC30 52: The Sardine Can increase the range of possible colors without ever dnaturer! A couple overdrive (I took the test on a Fulltone OCD), it provides more gain and make the effect more cutting edge (grinding of Violet) or more crmeux (corrected on Brown) .
    My rglage prfr right now: 11am compression, volume 1 hour, Input filter on Cut1, correct on Brown.

    OVERALL OPINION

    There - I know - no equivalent on the market so it is impossible to make comparisons. In any case I find nothing wrong. The PDAL is a real plus in a pedalboard, not a gadget. I could do without dj.

    EDIT: I finally found a subject of great pedals mcontentement this: when the switch j'enclenche True bypass, I have a "plop". During the game, has drowned in the overall sound but in a quiet way, I have to mute the volume on my pedals before initiating the effect. It is currently the only pedals from my board to have that default. What a shame on a production level of this requirement. I withdraw the point.

    UTILIZATION

    With two knobs: gain compression and output switch and two, that's a lot of opportunities to experiment with but few settings to make the cabbage. Especially a setting for a guitar not be suitable for another. It's not a compressor neutral.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Everything I read here or elsewhere on this compressor has proven true.

    1) With the P90 or center position (split humbucker in single + P90) of my Duesenberg (on my Vox AC15C1): no problem, the sound is beautiful (beautiful) with just the compressor.

    2) Correct: The position of color "Violet" is supposed to imitate the English and then reproducing the signature tone of a Vox ... So on Vox is really not workable (and there is no need). It's far too garish. The color "brown" is not bad to thicken the sound of my overdrive (2 Mosfet Fulldrive) in bluesy lead. But mostly, I leave FLAT.

    3) Input Filter: Yeah. Again the position FLAT enough.

    4) With a humbucker, it is a bit forced to push the output gain up to almost the maximum (so it blows a little) to get an equivalent level to bypass. As read on a forum, they designed the pedal with single coil Fender type, so it seems that this is normal. That said it remains manageable. And to boost a solo, it's the job.
    I think it should be top of a stratum.

    5) With my low: So once again, with a Rickenbacker, you never know what to expect. It can be really enchanting as rotten. There, with the compression knob on top of 9 o'clock, it compresses too much, it kills the sound and pump it shaggy. But underneath, it just slightly and lowering the volume of the micro bridge the Rock, I got to pick one sound really interesting. After all is a matter of degree of attack from the bass player, and in this area, I still have room for improvement in smoothness of play the finger, same but there was less of a problem to get a little compression . But I've heard better compression for bass. And I have not tested in actual rehearsal or concert. For the saturation correction: to forget unless you want to specifically have a sound dirty and lo-fi that has nothing to do with a bass. At the end, the pedal is far from having the flexibility it has with a guitar. I have everything set flat and only uses the compression.
    As I play in overdrive on the bass (a multidrive EBS), it helps to make the sound clearer in a mix which is pretty good.

    Not to be overlooked: even if it's a bit expensive the buffer, I really feel that even without using compression pedal that has a beneficial effect on the rest of my effects chain.

    OVERALL OPINION

    The best: the next magic box, you plug it a "little something" vintage compressor which means that you do not want to play without. The different color filters and the correct make a pretty versatile pedal. A try with the instrument before you buy ... unless it was a Telecaster or a Start:)

    The least: good for bass, you really try. It will not go with everything. There's more appropriate (and even cheaper) if you really want a compressor just efficient. But then it can think outside the box with a nice color .. I have yet to experience that side.


    As I bought my first guitar, I'll still be 9 because I feel it will be permanently connected.
