Overview

Hand built in Denmark, the Comp Nova guitar effects pedal is easy to use and delivers uncolored sound with awesome clarity, detail, and dynamics, even at extreme compression levels. It's designed for guitarists who want to thicken up and smooth their tone and who crave that much sought-after "chime." Very subtle and transparent even at full sustain. Great for blues and jazz. Controls include an Attack knob which adjusts both attack and threshold, plus Compression and Volume knobs. (The Volume knob has unity gain in the 12 o'clock position and delivers a 3dB boost at the maximum setting.) 9V battery operation.

    Comments about T-Rex Engineering CompNova Compressor Pedal:

    This pedal was the cornerstone of my pedal addiction. I was using a Boss ME-50 and the compression was nonexistent. I purchased the T-Rex and was instantly impressed. It's been turned on ever since.
    It really dials in my range without clipping. Imagine your sound as a sine wave, some compressors I have tried just clip your signal, giving it a square wave sound, but the Compnova keeps the wave form (your sound) intact while keeping the signal consistent within the range the pedal allows. But within that range, there is still room for expression.
    It is rugged, and makes a satisfying click when you turn it off (which I rarely do).

    A Lame Pedal

    By Ricardo Moraes Pinto

    from Brazil

    Comments about T-Rex Engineering CompNova Compressor Pedal:

    This is a "boutique" pedal made in Taiwan. Words and expressions recently used in the market (as "transparent" or "it is true to your tone") are catches that a customers has to decipher for their real meaning. Which sometimes equals "almost zero effect".
    I recently bought this pedal led by the wirds "transparent" and "subtle". And the pedal almost did nothing for my sound. Compression is very little effective; as well as sustain.
    Case is rughed, well painted and controls are positive and work well. There was a noticeable hum when I plugged the pedal, no matter whether it was on or off.
    This is an expensive compression pedal. Customers would be more well served with something like a Boss or an MXR.

    Is it even there?

    Comments about T-Rex Engineering CompNova Compressor Pedal:

    This is a great pedal because it does just what I want it to do. When I heard different guitars through this pedal I really heard the differences in each guitar. There was no tone coloring that I could hear. It is like having an invisible pedal. When using a compressor in a performance no one should be able to say, "I like how they used the compressor..." With this pedal people will say great things about the tone. It is also a simple pedal to manage. There is nothing more to this pedal then great tone and great control.

    Best pedal on my board!

    By TeleDude83

    from Minneapolis, MN

    Comments about T-Rex Engineering CompNova Compressor Pedal:

    The overdrive pedal is the #1 pedal in any guitarists rig, but this compressor by T-Rex is by far the best pedal I have ever owned. I looked at buying the Boss CS-3, MXR Dynacomp, Analogman BiComp, and Keeley. But the T-Rex took home the prize. It gives just the right amount of compression / sustain without giving away any tone.
