Double Classic Comp (Compressor Pedal)

(1 customer review)



Musical compression and clean boost!
Our Double Classic Comp pedal has a natural sound and is very musical – much like high-end rack mounted compressors found in professional studios. Adjust the Ratio setting from moderate to heavy compression, create a very effective clean boost, or boost your amp from subtle to full overdrive [with just a few turns of the control knobs]. Using the same compressor circuit from our Joe Walsh Double Classic pedal, this pedal is acclaimed by players far and wide.

Coax great tone from any guitar.

A highly effective clean boost pedal [when set appropriately], the Double Classic Comp pedal allows you to optimize the dynamics of your tone while pushing your tube amplifier into sweet overdrive. This pedal plays nicely with humbuckers and even single-coil pickups, allowing you to coax great tone from any guitar.

Versatile compressor that’s capable of everything.
With a ratio range of 2:1 to 10:1, the Double Classic Comp is capable of everything – from subtle smoothing to hard-stop compression. Its Output control has plenty of gain on tap to push your amp hard. Just back off on the Ratio while pushing the Sensitivity to about three o’clock. Then, boost the Output control to taste.

How to use the Double Classic Comp pedal:

Sensitivity – use the compressor as a clean boost. Start by setting the Sensitivity control to about 3 o’clock.

Ratio – back the Ratio control off by setting it to the 10 o’clock position.

Output – set the Output control to achieve the desired amount of clean boost to your amp.

    The alien comp is the sonic glue holding the perfect tone together. The first time I ran my Strat of 20 years through it, it was like hearing things in high definition. That was with a slight turn of the ratio knob. It also is a fantastic boost and push the front of a clean tone in a stack. It keeps my envelope filter in line as well. It’s a magical jack of many trades with a beautiful simplicity in design that allows endless combinations of blending.
