Compressor / Distortion
Book with a 18v power supply

UTILIZATION

Config simple potentiometers are incremental and reactive to the slightest movement.
Using a relatively instinctive, quality and sound reproduction is excellent and immediate.

SOUND QUALITY

It's a real compressor quality, very accurate dosing attack and sustain and certainly one of the best I had (and I had too). Passes with flying colors Rock, Blues, Funk, Psyche ...

However I remain skeptical about the distortion, tight and very charismatic.
The distortion I use in troubleshooting or background music, but for me that's it.

I play Blade ddr-2 Deluxe and Ibanez RG-505 through a pedalboard effects to a selected Blackstar Studio 20.
Everything is compatible except again the integrated distortion is sufficient to itself, but makes the soup when tucked into a Big Muff Pi Russian or a Wah-Wah.
(Contratio then that the Russian Big Muff likes to be fed by a good overdrive root)

OVERALL OPINION

Received two months ago the US, I like its size and input jack on the right allowing me to paste in the bottom right of my Pedaltrain entry. I love the quality and versatility of its compression.
Excellent build quality, when you open the welds are serious, the finishes are a standard shop.

After a period of ownership and doubts, I would do now that choice.
Like many I buy, I sell, I'm looking monGraal sound, and this Pigtronix enters. I keep.

A compressor / sustainer / distortion surprising

Compressor, sustain and overdrive / distortion pedals in one.
The big downside is that it only works on AC and AS on the 18v AC. There is more than the supply on a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power Plus 2 and is an investment. It runs on 12V AC but we feel it is in the plan.

Studio-grade opto compressor, sustain virtually infinite (and very natural).
Potentiometers:
Grit: saturation
Sustain: Compression / Sustain
Blend: dry / wet in the direction of clockwise
Treble: treble boost, at least this gives his jazz circles, this gives a maximum twang
Master Volume

I put only 9 because they could find a way to make the pedal easier to use them internationally.

UTILIZATION

It is rare for a pedal that promises to be as good as she looks. I hate that the cuts, it is simply sublime and very musical.

Two small flaws: even at a minimum, it provides a sound quite spongy with a strong attack, a hollow and then sustain. This hardly means but I'm very demanding. The other missing is the grit. Even at zero, clear sound, you will hear a grrrrr. Very effective

SOUND QUALITY

solo saturated in crunch for all that is legato, tapping ... but also for country licks, funk, etc..

Again I do not like the pedals of compression, but it soon became indispensable to me.

OVERALL OPINION

The best compression I've ever had. I tried almost everything (boss, digitech, Marshall, FMR RNC, Real McCoy ...) and it was really something more. I would even say it has a very particular grain, personality and she knows to make himself indispensable. I use it in boost for solos and phrases for all that I do not have enough bumps (!) So that my game seems more fluid. Yes, this pedal can also rip off the ears of others and give the impression that we still played better than usual.
