Compression is the process of attacking the higher levels of a signal keeping them under a specified threshold. Sustain is the process of amplifying the lower levels of a signal, thus creating more sustain the sound. Compression and Sustain pedals do both of these things simultaneously to create a more leveled signal starting from the attack points all the way through the end of the signal.

Green Russian Big Muff Distortion/Sustainer
Back by overwhelming demand... in a mini package! The cult classic Green Russian Big Muff first shook the ground in the mid-1990s. Since then it has been heralded by guitarists and bassists for its devastating low-end and unique sludge and sizzle. The Green Russian Big Muff creates a huge tone that is all its own, but is undeniably Big Muff.
The Bloom from Jackson Audio is a comprehensive dynamic engine that is designed to give guitarists maximum dynamic tonal control in ways never before possible. A three-fold device, the Bloom manipulates the dynamics of the instrument by way of precisely tuned compression, equalization, boost and sustain circuits which can be activated separately or in tandem with each other. Keep reading below for more information about the BLOOM!
Mini Ego Compressor
Now widely regarded as the industry standard in guitar pedal compression, the Mini Ego Compressor brings a new level of of control to what is expected and needed by today's guitar players, in a mini Format. What does a compressor do? A compressor adds an element of control to your playing level – it will bring the quieter parts up and the louder parts down. While an ordinary compressor pedal can give you an element of control, a great compressor will give you the “feel” that other average compressors lack. If you’ve played a great tube amp when it’s being pushed hard, you’ll know what a great natural compressor feels like. Based on the incredible success of the original Ego but featuring switches for tone (dark and bright) and attack (slow and fast) you can tweak your tone to a standard of a pedal twice its size. By keeping the clean blend of the original, your original signal to be blended in so you can get all the benefits of a great compressor (picking up the notes that aren’t as strong and increasing sustain) but you have the option to remove the squash at the front by bringing the bypassed signal in. With this control, you can have full country squash or open studio level parallel compression. Basically, the Mini Ego gives you complete control of every aspect of your compression. So, with a comprehensive array of controls and a core tone that is pure, you won’t find a compressor that works perfectly as an “always on” or as “an effect” that is more highly regarded than the Mini Ego from Wampler Pedals.

FORCEFIELD COMPRESSOR FORCEFIELD COMPRESSOR provides all the sweet vintage dynamics control that the legends of rock ‘n’ roll and country music were built on. From the subtle sustain enhancement that gently boosts a sweet, but softly played interlude or blues passage, to the full-on hard-knee compression that makes your guitar pop in the mix – you’ll find it all and more here in the FORCEFIELD COMPRESSOR. All-Analog Awesomeness By its very nature, compression is one of the most difficult effects to explain, but here goes… By controlling the maximum level of a signal, a compressor limits the dynamic range, while maintaining a higher average loudness. You can use compression to: reduce really loud passages; or bring up the level of the most-subtle nuance – and sustain it for days. You often feel compression more than you hear it, and when applied properly, it can either be sweet and smooth, or tight and punchy. FORCEFIELD COMPRESSOR’s vintage circuit design lets you tap into everything from the sweet sag of a tube amplifier, to the unapologetic smack of a sledgehammer! Old-School Feel Vintage analog compression differs greatly from modern studio compression. Instead of the ultra-glassy transparency of high-end rack gear, you get generous gobs of warmth and the smooth tonal characteristic that has shaped the sound of rock and country music from their early beginnings. From sublime, bluesy sustain of classic rock, to the snap of country chicken-pickin’ that pops out of the mix beautifully – you get it all with FORCEFIELD COMPRESSOR.
Op-Amp Big Muff Pi Distortion/Sustainer
With original late-70s Op-Amp Big Muffs selling for exorbitant prices, Mike Matthews decided to take the power to the people and reissue the classic pedal at a price that players could afford! The circuitry of the new Op-Amp Big Muff —sometimes also referred to as the IC or V4 Big Muff— has been faithfully re-created while several practical enhancements have been added including a compact, die-cast chassis and true bypass switching. “The Op-Amp Big Muff was popularized by the brilliant Billy Corgan who first used it on the Smashing Pumpkins’ epic 1993 album Siamese Dream. After he was videotaped playing and talking about the reissue, Billy stated: ‘The magic’s still in the box, I can still get what I’m looking for!’” - Mike Matthews The pedal relies on op-amps rather than transistors and three gain stages rather than four, to create its signature sound. It’s a sound that’s been described by noted Big Muff collector and historian, Kit Rae, as: “a huge, crushing Big Muff sound with more crunch… great for grungy, wall-of-sound distortion, heavy rhythm playing and heavy leads.”
CPR1 – Compressor
Recording studios often use rackmount ‘vocal channels’ – a mic preamp, compressor, and EQ all in one unit as a front end for vocal recording. The Diamond Compressor is our take on a ‘guitar channel’ – a dynamics and tone shaping tool for live and studio use, with low-noise, ultra-linear signal buffering, smooth opto-based compression, and a versatile ’tilt’ EQ that musically shifts overall frequency balance. All in a user-friendly 3-control package – Comp, EQ and Volume. Click here for a sample MP3 clip of the Diamond Compressor with EQ on. The guitar used is a Fender American Standard Strat (2nd Pos), into the compressor, and out to a Fender Vibro-King. The sample starts with no effect and then switches to an effect.
