Compressor Mini Pedal

Add a compressor to your pedal board with this Compressor Mini Pedal from Monoprice!

This mini pedal it produces a classic compression sound with a smooth attack and decay, while preserving the transients. The compression can be adjusted from 1:2 to 1:6 and you can control the tone to emphasize high or low frequencies or anything in between. The pedal features true bypass, so it won't alter your tone when not actively in use.

The casing is metal for long term durability. It is powered using a 9VDC power adapter with a negative tip/center, such as our 9V Power Supply for Guitar Pedals (PID 611690).

Subtle, transparent and quiet

  • DW,

Pros: Transparent.. Subtle. Hard to get a bad sound out of it.. Small. Strong case. Nice bright blue LED. Extreme bargain.

Cons: Nothing I can find for me. It does what I want and cheaply. I wish though they tell what type of compressor this is. Not for old type country string popping.

The item description is right on the money. You pretty much can't get a bad setting. Most multi knob compressors have most settings just unusable and you really end up pretty much what this simple compressor is. I would not use it for country pop though. like a Boss CS-3. I use it simply to smooth of the strings when playing rhythm with no effect on tone and not being obvious. It does this well. Strangely the manual is word for word the same as the yellow Mooer compressor which some say is the same as the little Fender brand compressor. So it is eluded to that all three are the same device, just that Monoprice is a fraction of the price. Well I really don't care, but that info led me to this Monoprice compressor which I would have never learned about. I did not want to spend a lot on a compressor so I took a chance on this and am very happy. It does what I want and it is not in your face noticeable - meaning rather than be an effect it just is subtly improves. Many people have very strong opinions on such things. In my case I just wanted it for rhythm with some little leads here and there between chords. In the past I hated compressors and until I viewed a Youtube tutorial on them, I did not understand why I would use one for rhythm. This is my first Monoprice purchase. It shipped right away too.

Great for light to moderate compression

  • Garrett Hope,

Pros: Affordable with a small footprint.

Cons: The light doesn't work. Tends to clip when compression is maxed.

Has a very crisp sound. I put this in-line with my bass rig and it sounds great. With the compression knob set at 2:00 and the tone dial turned down to 8:00 it has a very tight sound. When the compression knob is maxed it out it clips quite badly. I highly recommend this for people who want a simple and very clean sounding light compressor.

Great cheap light compression

  • Ryan Clare,
  •  Vancouver, BC

Pros: Low noise, small footprint, works with Boss (normal, centre/tip neg) power adapter, bright LED, true bypass.

Cons: True bypass (sometimes you want buffered, AMIRITE!?), not a ton of compression, not very interesting paint job.

I bought this pedal because I wanted a light compressor for a couple songs, but didn't want to break the bank. It's no Keeley pro, but this little guy does the trick. I prefer it over my Boss CS-3 Compressor/limiter. It's easy to use, and works for my application.

Nice Comp

  • P,

Pros: The attack and release are set perfectly.

Cons: It's bass response could be better.

I have a love hate relationship with comps. It's a bit mid focused with a slight presence boost. No pumping or weird comp artifacts. Great for solo boosting. If it had a little more bass I'd leave it on all the time. It's the best comp I own.
