Dual tube magic! Using the same professional-grade techniques as the most revered, vintage, high-end studio compressors, the Black Finger's two different light sources (LED and lamp) offer uniquely varied compressions. Unlike other "tube hyped" products on the market, which use 9 to 50 volts, the Black Finger's toroidal transformer allows for a full 300 volts of swing, preserving the attack while providing the warmest compression imaginable.

I bought this b/c the price new was under $130. and I am still not sure I want to keep it. Hopefully time , and experimentation will tell! By the way I found it did not work well in the effects loop, though it seems few pedals do with my Tubeworks amp. But I am not sure how to set the variable send/recieve pot's.
My first impression about Black Finger was awful. It seemed to me noisy, difficult to use, low sustain and bad compression. Then I decided to go through it and with some accurate setting I obtained really a great sound. By the time being, Black finger is in my favorite pedal and my Keeley is in the cupboard.
This Pedal is a mixture of Booster, valve preamp and Compressor. It doesn't have big sustain but it enhances a lot the strat type sound. However, I couldn't get a good sound when I used it with SG and Les Paul. I have 3 Fender Stratocaster, 1 telecaster and 1 thinline. With all of them Black Finger was extraordinary. If I lose it I will by a new one immediately.
