Simple Compression Done Well

By Adam Myer

from Fayetteville, NC

Comments about Malekko Heavy Industry Omicron Series Compressor Guitar Effects Pedal:

Was going for a Keeley 4-knob, but the shop was out and they suggested I try this. It will probably still be a temporary fix on my way to either the Keeley or Pigtronics, but for a simple compression with basic parameters (level and sustain knobs) done well, Malekko has done a great job. Its tiny footprint on the pedalboard is a plus, taking up roughly 1/3 the area of a standard stompbox. The compression is very transparent, and adds a nice sparkling boost to chordal playing when the level is set to about 1 o'clock. I leave it turned on about 90% of the time, as it really livens up the tone of my RG/tube amp combo. I generally keep the sustain around 2 o'clock for a mildly punchy sound, but it will remain absolutely silent up until about the 4-5 o'clock range. Even then, the hiss is not too noticeable unless it's engaging my preamp tubes on fully saturated gain. Not sure if it will give they Dyna-Comp chickin' pickin' crowd the squishy pop for which they're looking, but I'm not really into that style of playing, and so wouldn't consider my opinion worth much in that area. However, it does compress enough to get a nice tubular funk sound. When looking at compressors, due to the lack of reviews/name recognition, I would have most likely avoided even giving this a shot. Don't let that happen to you if you're in the market for a great little compressor that won't break the bank. Oh yeah, and here's to my home town of Portland, Oregon (where the Malekko company is located) for attracting yet another quality musical crafter to the bunch!

Gets it done!

By DONALD BARRETT

from Stanley, NC

Comments about Malekko Heavy Industry Omicron Series Compressor Guitar Effects Pedal:

Was looking for compression without much noise and found it. I'm a sound freak and my country guitar needed some pop and slight sustain. It really worked out great and saved some space on my pedal board.

Great ROSS style Compresor

By Jeffey Hamilton

from Holyoke, MA

Comments about Malekko Heavy Industry Omicron Series Compressor Guitar Effects Pedal:

I was in the maket for a Ross style compressor. I had was watching a few analogman bi-comps on ebay, but I lost a few bid wars and had to wait. I eventually settled on the Maleko Comp, and I am TOTALLY happy with it. This comp gives me a great clean boost if I want to solo with a clean sound. I also use it with my tube screamer (on low settings) and I get a great creamy, overdriven sustain. If you are lookin to give your signal a great, clean, compressed, boost, this is the pedal for you.

Excellent Compressor *** Check it out

By SCOTT

from Fountain Valley, CA

Comments about Malekko Heavy Industry Omicron Series Compressor Guitar Effects Pedal:

I will keep this simple. If you are looking for a compressor, you really should check this one out. I've tried several and was very happy with the sounds coming from this one. Sure there are others out there with lots of knobs and controls that do sound good. This one is simple and gets the job done quite well. Excellent compressor. Love this thing!

AMAZING COMPRESSOR

By mike vilogi

from Clarks Summit PA

Comments about Malekko Heavy Industry Omicron Series Compressor Guitar Effects Pedal:

This thing is awesome. Such a nice variation of sponge levels. Not transparent in touch, but totally transparent in tone. Makes me play better. I have owned Keeley, and that thing is great , but this is easier to find and swap great settings. Just get it already!
