Strymon Compadre Dual-Voice Compressor and Boost Pedal

available for immediate delivery


Strymon's Compadre is a dual-voice compressor that brings studio-quality compression right to your fingertips, along with a fantastic boost circuit. Whether you're after a vintage sound or something more modern and transparent, the Compadre has your back. You can choose between Squeeze (vintage) and Studio (modern) sounds via a two-way switch, while a three-way Boost EQ switch lets you choose what frequencies you want to bring to the forefront, with a choice of treble, mid, or flat. And with four simple-to-use knobs, the Compadre is easy to dial in just to your liking: Boost, Compression, Dry, and Level are your controls. And thanks to independent footswitches, you can individually engage Boost and Compression. Plus, the Compadre is made form the highest-quality components, and also uses a unique combination of digital and analog circuitry to bring together digital control and an all-analog signal path. From top to bottom, Strymon's Compadre leaves no stone unturned in bringing the absolute best to players in need of a quality compression/boost pedal.
