well for a pedalboard (Constrictor)

By Jej94, 02/12/2011
effect pedals, no more or less

UTILIZATION

it's easy ...
otherwise Previous Notice is correct: the knobs are too easy "drglables". when it found its rglages, we can glue a piece of gaffer above to be about not having vrifier whenever a has not moved. same for the switch, crappy wish, we show the switching half the time. but on a pedalboard, by including it in its presets, it is perfect. pedals heavy, high, not always super easy fit.
Finally, it was necessary to a critical point but tell then, what is this crap PSU?? a buzz if it is plugged into the same power supply as its boss prfres, or other brands. but what are they doing, guys, we make life difficult? yet it is simple to set up a standard circuit, instead of adding a transformer to ddi

SOUND QUALITY

3 levels of compression, rglages necessary, finesse is the appointment. Note the noise gate, which is effective trs, musical, and essential nfor this type of effect of chaining beginners ... I do not understand that the manufacturers of drives, compressors and other effects gn noise operators do not systmatiquement a noise gate, it would make sense ...

OVERALL OPINION

effect and the concept in themselves are trs good and effective, the switch, the power supply and the knobs are crap. but at least we have a good compressor and noise gate in the chaining beginners ... so be aware of the use rflchir you want to do

Decent compressor for the money. (Constrictor)

The Line 6 Constrictor is one of the very rugged and extremely durable ToneCore series pedals. It's got a solid build and seems relatively indestructible. Standard input and output with a 9V adapter for powering. It has a very nice LED that is green when the pedal is engaged and turns red when there is a lack of power and it is unplugged. It has a Level knob that controls the overall level making this a good pedal if you want to use it as a boost. It has a sustain knob which controls the amount of sustain and compression you want. From lightly compressed to chicken pickin' squash. It has a gate knob that cuts down some noise but can further compress your signal making there be a bit of tone loss. Not so much so that I don't like this pedal though. Lastly there is a switch that changes the "compression dynamics", ranging from compact to squeeze to mellow. There are different levels of compression, I thought this was a cool switch, helps dial in exactly what you want.

UTILIZATION

It's pretty easy to set up. The manual is clear on how to get certain sounds. You can get some nice variations of compression out of this pedal and it really surprised me. I use it to get a little boost and liven up my clean tone. It works wonders for that. I play a lot of ambient stuff and like a lot of clean leads so this works extremely well for that. Very happy with the pedal in that aspect.

SOUND QUALITY

I use the pedal for my electric guitar only, but I'm sure it could handle other stringed instruments really well. It has a wide range of compression so it's fairly versatile in that sense. Obviously if you crank the sustain knob and gate knobs you'll be at a loss of tone. But that's what squashy compression does. This thing nails that and also much subtler "tone sweetening" compression. The only problem I have found sonically is that the pedal is very noisy when used in a daisy chain. I have it plugged in by it's own 9V adapter and it solved that problem for the most part. I couldn't be happier for the price of this pedal.

OVERALL OPINION

The pedal is built like a tank. It is very reasonably priced and it sounds pretty dang good. I've tried a few other compressors and this is definitely one of my favourites. It may not be the best, but it surely does what I need it to do. For the price you can find these pedals used, you would be hard pressed to find something better. I'd definitely recommend them to someone fairly new to compression.
