    I saw this compressor and it has a sort of mixed sound feature like the barber tone press. Is anybody fimiliar with this pedal? How does it sound?

    Lots of love here.

    A great pedal, especially for a cramped pedalboard.

    I used to have the ST2 and loved it. It's a great, fairly transparent compressor. The switch to include the dry signal is key. I would highly recommend it.

    It is a wonderful compressor, I love and use mine frequently, particularly as a clean gain boost with just the smallest touch of compression for warming up Fender-style amps at lower volume levels or for pushing them into a natural tube overdrive at higher levels.

    In general, if you hear with your ears as opposed to your eyes or "boutique expectations," you can sound great at low dollar and "footprint" cost with Guyatone's line of mini-pedals.

    +1 Very quiet and nice sounding too. The only drawback is the gasketed baseplate if you're using batteries.

    Best compressor I have owned REGARDLESS of the money. I sold my Keeley 4-knob after I got the guyatone!

    The construction seems pretty cheesy...is it just the pictures?

    it does appear that way.. and Im sure you wouldnt want to have size 14...10lb....Goth Rocker boots stomping on it.... But I've been using mine for at least 5 years every weekend with no issues
