Actually, a compressor can relly noise up your signal, so it is really a noise amplifier! Reason is. if you have a very l;ow threshold with high gain, as soon as you stop playing, the compressor ratchets up the gain and amplifies any stray hums, buzzes, vibrations, unintentional string noise. Compressors are great for helping with sustain, but at a price (nothing is ever free !)


Hi all,

Well as with any effect it's often a case of getting to know it. In praise of a good compressor - I can get near infinite sustain without having to distort my original signal, an even picking attack, smoother, rounder, richer tone. Sloppy guitar technique along with poor setup of the pedal will produce exactly what Andrew says. IMO though that's more to do with knowing how to use the pedal and having good technique - particularly muting.

Cheap compressors can certainly add (a lot of) noise to the signal: usually exacerbated because its first in line and so the output is then sent through od's, wahs, fuzzes and so on. However a good compressor, whilst sometimes not entirely noise free will not add a lot of noise - and certainly in my experience is no worse then most other pedals in this respect. I have mine turned on pretty much all the time and it doesn't cause me problems. Personally I'd say a good compressor is the most under-rated and perhaps misunderstood guitar effect there is. Sad thing is that because a compressor doesn't produce an instantaneous obvious noise shaping effect like say a distortion or a flanger it gets ignored. Just my two pennies worth though biggrin.gif .

Cheers,
Tony
