Start your signal chain with the best possible version of your guitar tone using the Strymon Compadre dual voice compressor and boost. Treat your guitar signal to true studio-quality analog compression with two distinct voices for smooth transparency or vintage squeeze. Hit the Boost switch to add clean boost or soft-clipped dirty boost, with the EQ curve of your choice. Mix in some dry signal for natural attack even with extreme compression settings. Feel the perfectly tailored dynamic response, feeding your amp and effects just what they need to sound their best.

From pickups, tubes and capacitors to speaker cabinets—the aspects of a rig that can be upgraded or changed are nearly endless. Plug in Compadre and you may find you already have everything you need for the tone you've been seeking. Bring out your amp's character in ways you never thought possible. Compadre’s Class A JFET input circuit, studio-quality analog compression and musically voiced analog boost circuits all work together to make your amp sound like it was just modified by a world-class boutique amp designer.
