Strymon Compadre Boost/ Compressor *Free Shipping in the US*
Start your signal chain with the best possible version of your guitar
tone. 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.
The Compadre design project started with a study of some of the
finest analog compressors ever created, inspiring and guiding our
circuit design process. Utilizing a VCA in the compression circuits
allowed us to carefully tune the exact response and dynamics we desired
for each voicing.
For Studio mode, our goal was to achieve the musical and transparent
sound found within our favorite studio rack units and the best vintage
studio console bus compression. Careful tuning of our detection circuit
granted us exacting control over decay, especially important for Squeeze
mode. With ample sustain on tap, we paid special attention to creating a
completely smooth decay, with no unwanted pumping artifacts.
