    I have been playing this unit for a day cause i sort of took the unit home to try without purchasing it. I am still considering though.

    I have not been playing with compressors so i cant comment much.
    My settings are 3 oclock on the output and like almost zero on the sensitivity.

    I dun like my tone being squash too much. It brings out the highs and mids alittle and gives much clarity to solo playing.

    I got it yesterday, and it is pretty cool but I haven't got to play with it too much yet. It does retain the highs. I will tell you that my Diamond is King and it's still my main comp..
    My settings are 2:30 oclock on the output, and like 10:00 oclock on the sensitivity, and the attack trim inside, I turned it a little towards the right CC, to give my humuckers the the natural attack.

    I just got mine too, but it does not sound good at all. The notes make an annoying clicking sound when picked.

    I noticed there are two trimmers inside -- one open and one gooped. I assume the open pot is attack. Is the gooped pot a bias pot?

    Yes, all ross comps like our comprossor and the Keeley, and also dynacomps, have a bias trimpot. It is usually set at dead 50%, and does not need to be adjusted. the other one should be the attack. But I think the FK1 attack control is like the SUPERCOMP attack control, so you won't want to turn it up more than halfway or you'll get a lot of distortion (though that distortion could be a cool effect in itself)

    have fun!

    Open the back up and look at the top and there is a little hole and in that hole you will see a attack trim pot. It's kind of hard to get to, but turn it to the right and you compressor will be more transparent, and will not attack your notes as fast, turn it to the left and your going to get faster attack and it will squish harder. If your having the problem with the attack, just turn the pot clock wise with a very small screw driver, or a knife, and turn the pot to the right. You don't have to take the whole circuit board out..

    Yeah, I would love to hear a brief review on the Teese Compressor, I am seriously considering one at the moment. Can't loose with MusicToyz at that price...
