Product Description

Manufacturer's Description

When it comes to quality with compression the name dbx comes to mind. As a sister company to DigiTech, we were able to incorporate studio quality dbx OverEasy compression technology that provides near-transparent compression, and delivers long, real-sounding sustain for your guitar. No more having to worry about choppy compression release and sustain problems found on other pedals. And with the added EQ control, you can perfectly tune your compressed sound so you won’t have the thin and lifeless compression that people have come to expect from other pedals.

As always, DigiTech provides you with a rugged durable metal chassis and dual amp and speaker compensated mixer outputs.

Features: dbx® compression technology, EQ optimization control, Normal & CIT™ Cabinet Modeling outputs.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Guitar pedal. 18 May 2014
    Verified Purchase
    This pedal is a great, easy to use + set up. I use lots of sustain when im playing + this did every thing i needed. There are cheaper models out there but digitech are 1 of the best so i decided to get this one. Well packed + is a well built pedal, should last a long time.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Solid and does exactly as it should. 7 May 2014

    Firstly, a compressor is an often ignored pedal, it isn't glamorous and it doesn't stand out, as a compressor should be. However, a good compression pedal is one of those things that makes the difference between a good sounding pedal board and a great sounding pedal board, and this pedal delivers. It is solid, doesn't produce noise and gives you the desired control over attack and decay.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Hit a note and come back next day 4 May 2014

    I love these Digitech pedals, they give great effects for not a lot of money compared to what you can pay, the sustain on this pedal is as much as anyone could want or need, hit a note go make a cuppa come back and play the next note. It is very well built (as is all their pedals, I have a few) and will take a nine volt lead or battery, my advice don`t waste your money on effects pedals that do the same thing as this one for a quarter of the price...glenco.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't Disappoint 22 Jan 2010
    By Alec Bunnell - Published on Amazon.com
    Verified Purchase
    This is a great compression pedal. I'm not sure if it's entirely worth the $69.95 I bought it for, but she works, and she works well at that.

    From the Main Squeeze I was able to get some extremely nice compression out of even a $90 electric guitar. However, if you're going to hook it up to a guitar for sustain, do it on a nice one, or else you'll get tons of noise as it amplifies your signal. You can do an okay job of blocking out some of the noise with the EQ knob, but even then you have to turn down the sustain a bit.

    I would've like the attack/release control to have two separate knobs, but even without being so it's quite functional; if you do it right it will take the hard picking out of your sounds or really boost them up. It all depends on what sound you're hoping to achieve, but this pedal can do them all.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Low-Noise Compressor 17 Dec 2011
    By Guitar Man - Published on Amazon.com
    Verified Purchase
    I like it. The built-in DBX keeps the hiss down as the gain increases to keep the volume constant. In this case, I would say digital has the advantage over analog.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Best with clean settings 23 Dec 2012
    By R. W. Milyard - Published on Amazon.com
    I have stayed clear of using pedals for most of my playing carrier (over 40 years), but after installing a Fernandes FSK-101 Sustainer kit and getting the same results as most other guys: Too much sustain on adjacent strings which makes the whole experience a joke, I decided to go ahead and try this compressor out and am very happy with the results. I play mostly clean (jazz, blues, rock) and this unit gives me at least twice the sustain as I would normally get without any pedals.
    3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure yet... 19 April 2014

    As soon as I got this pedal I put it on my board and noticed it had a high end hum. I have a 2 Behringer pedals on my board and a lot of people say they are bad noisy pedals,but my pedal board was silent till I put this pedal on it. I've only had it for a few days, but the cons out way the pros. Maybe I will purchase a noise reducer to help clean it up a bit. Once I get around to playing with it I will write another review.
    3.0 out of 5 stars ok 10 Dec 2013
    By guitfiddleblue - Published on Amazon.com
    The digitech main squeeze is an okay compression pedal. Do I use it? yes. However, I would likely trade it for an MXR or DUNLOP if I had the opportunity. It doesn't sound bad per se' but does have some hiss to it. It also boosts your signal (a noticeable volume increase). While some may like this, I want my compressor to be a little more subtle and just provide some added sustain.
