EarthQuaker Devices The Warden
Analog optical compressor technology.
Many settings, all useful and progressive, to see on the website of the brand.


Bought used, I did not have the manual but you can find everything on the site and EarthQuaker multiple demos YouTube.
I find it easy to use. Must reflect a minimum when we never had, like me, anything other than type compressors vintage, descendant of ROSS 70/80.


It is his strong point. It is transparent and silent, without pumping effect. Compared to my experience compressors, it's a small revolution. I use it constantly. A big plus to play volume apartment too. He brings the type of compression that a tube amp is expected at high volume.


I use it for a month, always and in all circumstances. I've had a few, who always seemed good for 15 days and ended gradually to disappoint me. The latter, I'm sure to keep it. I would do the same purchase, even nine to + / - € 200.

Irmin's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" the holy grail!"

What are the effects or types of effects available?

optical compressor, tone / attack / release / level / sustain / ratio plenty to sculpt ..


The general configuration is it simple?

yes, in all when we know already will serve if a compressor is bah fumbles and eventually found but it is really simple.


The effects are they effective, responsive and realistic enough?

that more effective, I was seeking a transparent as possible and compressor does not pump and c is done, everything is really musical even with "extreme" settings no breath / buzz ... just a very good compression.


Have you tried many other models before buying it?

ego compressor wampler well therm transparency but too pump even with really low settings, a very good sardine Celmo with overdrive engaged but just an eyesore in the clear (for my use of course ...). ..

What is the particular feature you like best and least?

no pumping effect (on my hardware.) remains musical in all circumstances ...

How would you rate the quality / price?

good on the tankard averaged € 192/198 the price for a quality effect. there are probably better but for now, I think that it will stay a long time on my pedalboard ;)

otherwise, in the Baths of reliability, I have the same brand ghost echo reverb for a while now and not a RAS games on the knobs / switch, no buzz ... so I am confident that when a new pedal.
