- compressor limiter

UTILIZATION

- At first the setup can seem a little tricky and you'll need to read the manual (and even the online manual of the constructor website, where you can find some settings) to understand the use of the setting "response", but that's the only difficulty

SOUND QUALITY

Beautiful !
The Carl Martin compressor is well known for being one of the best "non-rack" compressor... Once you try it you understand why

OVERALL OPINION

- been using it for 8 months
- like everything about it
- A little expensive, but it's worth the money

The best!

By lnlolo, 13/01/2013
Super strong, integrated power supply.

UTILIZATION

I use it on a guitar for clean sounds and crunches. I use it with very little compression (around 9:00) and not a lot of gain (to 12:00) to enhance and give the body.

You do not hear too much compression effect but the difference is significant when it is not.

SOUND QUALITY

One of the best compressors I know. Very transparent, it does its job without changing the sound of the guitar.
No creaking or other noises unpleasant.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for over 2 years and I do it again this choice without thinking, this is THE reference.

Perfect

By fanofromrennes, 08/08/2013
Features widely described in other reviews ... 100% analog, assembly and high quality components.

UTILIZATION

Extremely comprehensive settings which requires an adjustment period. The manual, even if minimal, is very clear and allows precisely understand the function of each knob and possible interactions.

SOUND QUALITY

I use this effect with a low (under personal supervision of manufacturing luthier Fred Kopo - mahogany body, maple neck / ebony fingerboard, electronics Delano musicman deviation). Set to be discreet in my case, it is only there to mix my sound ... but how effective! As soon as I "pops", the penalty is cruel immediate ... The lack is violent! I must have become "addicted"!

OVERALL OPINION

Used for a few weeks, it is now permanently connected and laid next to my amp head ... I can not do without!
Like his musical presence that knows how to stay quiet but its obvious effectiveness ...

Note, in addition, the friendliness and efficiency of service Carl Martin: I bought this pedal used, but in good cosmetic condition with a very tired potentiometer (which caused a few scares me). I contacted Carl Martin via its website for just know the "ideal" reference potentiometer replacement. In addition to a rapid (within half a day) and very friendly response, they even sent me a new pot by mail (received a few days later). OK, a standard potentiometer is a few euros, but the gesture is particularly commendable and appreciated. 10 minutes dé-soudage/soudage and the pedal was like new!

Compressor Pedal by Carl Martin
1 Threshold button
1 Compression button
1 Response button
1 Gain control
1 switch On / Off
Alim integrated sector

UTILIZATION

I use it in front in a Mesa Mark V in drive, clean mode, high gain ...

SOUND QUALITY

This is a pedal comp studio quality that is not a very transparent color effect or another, we easily get the sound we are looking for attention to not put too much at risk of Comp loss and conversely for the Threshold filter that acute ... can play a little on the history of gain boosted the signal
Pedal clean fashion no problemo, it's drive and high gain (amp on) it gets harder, the pedal will add noise which is annoying, it is by removing the chain that remark difference and not just off mode ... blow must provide a noise ...
I have the MXR Custom Comp dynamic, as saying that the Carl Martin offers more opportunity in a modern studio and register while the Dyna Comp is in simplicity (2 buttons) with a vintage grain ...

OVERALL OPINION

Pedal compression acclaimed John Petrucci, it is seeing in his pedalboard that I took and I'm definitely not disappointed with the product even if it uses another Comp / Gate rack format as TC Electronics C400XL the DBX 166XL ... there is one more on the same product
Bought € 145 on occasion I would do in a modern spirit rock / Metal ... if you looking for something straight and square, after fans of vintage is more in the Dyna Comp MXR Custom Shop
