Tech 21 has introduced the Boost COMP pedal. Here's the story in their own words...
"When you want to fatten your guitar or bass tone, increase sustain and punch up your sound, a compressor is a way to go. But compressors can dredge up feelings of compromise, confusion, frustration and intimidation. So we set out to make a player-friendly pedal utilizing old school, all-analog, FET-based technology, which is inherently warmer, more transparent, and more musical than other methods.
With simplified, useful controls, the Boost COMP uniquely gives you pre- and post- tone shaping adjustability to get the right balance that complements your instrument and playing style. Presence provides a pre-compression tonal boost for high-end string attack and clarity. Tone provides a post-compression cut or boost to generate a mellower, more lush tone without getting too dark.
When it's time to jump out, a powerful boost function delivers up to 21dB of clean boost to increase your output level --without adding more compression. A true post-boost, this function can also be used independently.
Uncomplicated means less stress and more focus on your playing. Get vintage warmth, dynamics and sustain the easy way with the Boost COMP."
