Product Description

Bringing together the very best of classic guitar compression and time-honored recording techniques. The Barber Tone Press is a revolutionary performance compression pedal that has no rival... In research and development, Barber studied the problems associated with classic guitar compressors and their recent clones and found that, while the clone-makers build pedals with improved components (cleaner switching, in particular) and matched transistors, a few of the major drawbacks of those "vintage" designs still exist. The most glaring drawback of popular classic compressors is that they reverse the guitar's phase and cause a "pop" that squashes the attack at the beginning of every note. Although we now see some compression units that have attack controls, they leave a bit to be desired as they require seemingly endless trial and error tweaking , and still no true solution to gracefully removing the pop. Parallel compression is the solution. a Barber innovation that blows away having to deal with attack, ratio and release knobs of other so-called "studio compressors." Barber developed a one-of-a-kind proprietary continuous "blend control" circuit, and combined it with a discrete "Class A" FET mixer circuit to allow you to continuously blend the natural signal of your carefully selected guitar with a "phase-corrected" classic compression circuit. The result? What guitar players have always wanted, unaltered attack and supernatural sustain and resonance. No studio engineering degree required. DC jack included (ac power adaptor not included) NEW FEATURES! Elna silk particulate audio caps, Panasonic and Wima film caps. Enhanced circuit with 2-3db increased available output to help match higher output pickups.

When looking at a good compressor, you're typically talking- keeley vs analogman vs barber. For the $$$ the barber is the best choice because of the versatility in your tone. Definitely compare some different compressors, but if you've never heard of this one, be sure to add in the race because it is a strong pedal.

I rated this 5 stars as it performs as noted in its description. The sustain is wonderful and the compression can be adjusted as to one's liking. I also have noted no excessive noise even when levels are at there maximum.
