I like what this pedal does for my sound. It does an excellent job sustaining notes (when you want it to). For a stomp box compressor, this is a pretty good deal, although I honestly prefer the amount of control I get with a rack mount compressor. I have to adjust a knob or two when switching guitars, which is kind of lame.. Still, for the price it's not a bad deal and it does what it's supposed to do.
I need a compressor to take the loud POP out of clean country leads, where you really dig in and chickin pick. This unit does that, but it is just so NOISY, especially between notes. Maybe all compressors are noisy, I don't know. I am leaving this unit out of my setup until I can get this resolved. Maybe a HUSH pedal at the end of the chain.
Before I bought this pedal I have never worked with compressors very much. And I really wasnt sure what they were used for. But instantly when I plugged in the Main Squeeze, I could tell the difference in my tone. With the four differnt knobs that are used for settings you can get exactly what you want out of the pedal. The Main Squeeze makes ur tone much more clear and is very good for dynamics. You can play harder and with more force but your volume doesnt get out of control. The effect of playing louder is there without getting louder. I Highly recommend this pedal.
This little guy is so worth the money, it gives you a long sustain, and doesn't hum like other pedals i've tried before. Make the first pedal in your pedal chain, and be sure that every other effect you have will be enhanced... I use it with a stratocaster, and it just sounds awesome!
I've owned the DigiTech XMS Main Squeeze Compressor/Sustainer Pedal since early 2006, and it rocks! This little stompbox provides studio-quality compression, and really rocks out on the sustain! Put this first in the chain of your effects, crank it up, and let it rip! These pedals are built like tanks, using metal construction; and produce high-quality, digital sound. Their metallic paint makes them look really cool, too! DigiTech X-Series pedals provide you with the most bang for your buck, and I highly recommend them! Make sure to grab a DigiTech AC power supply so you can save money on batteries!
