This pedal works great for simply that function: transparent compression. Placed right after the instrument and before other effects, it will keep your peaks from blowing or distorting your sound, and it will keep your signal troughs louder so that you don't have to up the volume. The final product is an even, "big" sound, great for both live and recording.
For specific uses like extra sustain or chicken picken, use another compressor that has specific sustain, threshold and attack settings so you can really adjust your sounds.
My problem with Danelectro pedals is the housing. Behringer -- another maker of cheap pedals -- also has plastic albeit sturdy enclosures that are practical, and much more pleasing to the eye. I don't know of anyone who likes Danelectro's 50s design (which doesn't even make sense for some of their effects, such as their distortion pedals. And I can't imagine that anyone enjoys the tiny knobs.
For the sound and price, I highly recommend it if you're looking for transparent compression. For the housing/design, I absolutely do not recommend it for frequent live gigs unless you leave it on the whole time.

Haven't been able to try it yet, because it came without a power cable. Seriously, no power cord? Was that an accident, or what?Published on March 9, 2013 by Matthew G. Bullock
