    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).

    Compression Range 1:2 to 1:6
    Input 1/4" monaural TS jack (impedance: 470k ohms)
    Output 1/4" monaural TS jack (impedance: 1k ohms)
    Power Requirement AC adapter. 9VDC (tip/center negative plug)
    Current Draw 10mA
    Dimensions (WDH) 1.8" x 3.7" x 2.0" (46 x 94 x 50 mm)

    I've compressed more signals than you've had hot meals!
    I've pretty much covered it. If you can't scrape together $36, I suggest you sell your drummer's kit on craig's while he's sleeping in until 2PM. You should be able to at least get $30 for that pile of junk, and the last $6 you could probably earn busking for an hour.

    Oh, by the way, to the silly people saying the input/output configuration is awkward, what in the world did the drummer slip in your Pabst? The unit isn't much longer across than a cable jack! they are necessarily staggered and the whole configuration works great. So there.

    PROS: $36. What's that? You don't have $36? Then you're probably a drummer and don't need a compressor.

    It will compress your unwieldy and crummy guitar technique into a shiny cubic zirconia.

    Did I mention it's less than $37? (For drummers: I realize this seems like an impossible amount of currency, but trust me. I'm not joking.)

    It is not a drummer.

    CONS: It does not dispense refreshing beverages. It can not be eaten, unless you are some sort of robot that converts guitar pedals into fuel. It can not be used to repel drummers unless modified. PM me. It can not be used to build a woman. If you plant it, it will not sprout a compression tree. If it were a drummer, that would be a con. Otherwise, this shiz is tight.

    You should give this thing a try!
    I tried this because of the low price. I was pleasantly surprised! This unit adds no noise, even if you turn all knobs to 10. It does more of what I want better than my MXR Super Comp. I use both together, and they kick arse!

    I would recommend this pedal to anyone.

    PROS: No added noise

    Nicely made

    Not flimsy

    CONS: None for me

    Subtle, transparent and quiet
    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.

    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.

    Sounds good. We'll see how durable it is.
    The pedal is quiet enough and the compressor is transparent enough to be very useful. Volume and treble boost can help you match up guitars or pickups. I tend to move the Sustain knob with my toe when it hit the switch, but that's the tradeoff for the tiny footprint. I'll be interested to see how durable the footswitch is, but so far so good.

    PROS: Nice compression. Very handy treble boost.

    CONS: Need to be careful hitting the footswitch.

    Just the kick my tone needed
    I'm a newbie to pedals and I picked up some of the Monoprice effects to start learning at a low-risk price point. This is not overwhelming, but it does give my sound a little tightening up at the start of the signal path. It can be dialed in to a mild smoosh level and stay there as a pretty sutble always-on effect. It really likes my single-coil guitars. I'm currently using it with the 611614 overdrive and 611610 chorus, plus the 611690 9v power supply and 611698 daisy chain.

    PROS: Small footprint
    Easy controls designed to set it and forget it
    Worth the investment just to learn how compression affects your tone
    LED is very bright blue

    CONS: LED is very bright blue (not really a con, just be aware)
    As with all mini pedals, needs AC power (not really a con, just be aware)

    Great cheap light compression
    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.

    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.

    Great Comp for the price
    JohnQuick's review says it all

    PROS: I love the mini format

    CONS: None so far

    Fantastic Compressor, Especially For the Price
    Title says it all. Bought this on a whim to compare to an old Rogue compressor that I had been using, and boy am I glad I did. Gone is the coloring my other compressor added to my tone. Gone is the fuzz my other pedal added. This compressor does exactly what I need it to do, and doesn't touch the tone, just the volumes. I don't think I could recommend this any higher for anybody who needs a compressor or is wondering if they'd even want one in the first place.
    I'm also impressed with the build quality of this thing. I've used several other micro-pedals like this Monoprice series and Mooer's pedals (which I'm also a fan of), but this pedal stands out as just being a really solid product. Colors are sharp, knobs and jacks feel secure, and the foot switch is soft touch, so no "CLICK" when you turn it on, which is always a plus. Usually build quality is one of the last things I'm concerned about with a pedal, but this has really impressed me nonetheless.

    Clean Boost like an old Echoplex with compression
    The way you determine what this pedal does is to plug it in, play. Then after a while, turn it off and you ears will demand you turn it back on. It is a fantastic clean boost with all the compression I will ever care for or need. I don't shut it off. It plays nice with other pedals and drives my SD-1 harder than a rented mule. For clean boost it is on part with an EP boost for 1/5th the price. Order one. If you are in So. Cal order one and go pick it up at the Monoprice store in Ontario. They have a demo on YouTube that doesn't even highlight the pedal. The treble boost is very handy.

    PROS: I love this pedal. I had an old EP boost and this thing works just like it except the without the internal dip switches and the added plus of some compression and a nice treble boost. If you want just compression you have to cut the level back and it has enough compression for me.

    CONS: The sustain that is in some compression pedals is not there but it still extends sustain, it is just more subtle.

    Sounds great on my board; works well with keys
    I like this pedal as it gives my keyboard output that extra oomph when I'm playing bass lines and such. It's a clean, tight compressor.
