Any other compressors beside Barber Tone Press have a blend function?

    Hi everyone,

    I love my Tone Press, it has been on my main board for years now, no complaints at all, except for it's size. Easy to use, and I just love the blend, as it allows me to add just the right amount of compressed signal without affecting my attack.

    However, I would have room for another overdrive on my board (I like different flavors!) if I could find a compressor with a smaller footprint, with the same functions as the Tone Press.

    I have been looking around, but still haven't found one so far.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the link ESNS!

    Just checked it out on the website, looks promising, exactly what I had in mind.

    I think the BYOC 5 knob can do that

    the new seymour duncan compressor also has a blend feature, but i think the footprint may be even larger! im anxious to try it (or the Barber) out, though... need a compressor along those lines.

    Guyatone ST2 has a blend on/off, 50% I think, super small.

    I think the Pedalworx McSqueeze has it too
    both are Orange Squeezer clones

    try contacting Mr. Barber, maybe he can squeeze it in a smaller box on custom order...

    Thanks for the tips so far.

    Looks like the Wampler is the only one with a blend AND a small footprint.

    The Nova looks to be the same size as the Tone Press, whereas the smaller Pedalworkx doesn't seem have the separate blend knob.

    Mad Prof Forest Green when toggled to sustain mode. Had the Tone Press. Nice, but this thing if you can swing it, whoa,!
