Insanely transparent and versatile! Absolute essential pedal!
To be honest, I didn't think I would ever make much use of compression pedals.. Until I played the Xotic SP! WOW! If you're a tele player, you should have a compressor. That's a given. But taking this pedal to other types of guitars translates extremely well! I switch between a strat and tele for almost everything I play. I'm especially loving this pedal for funk and soul styles! The blend control is key. dialing in the amount of the effect is very helpful when going from one style to another. and between the 3-way toggle and the internal dip-switches, this little guy has way more versatility than what meets the eye! Competively priced, too! Hard to beat! I gave in. I bought one! had to. This is an essential pedal. Call or email me to talk about why
Unlike many popular compressors you may have used in the past, the SP allows for your guitar's natural tone to be enhanced, not covered up, by the effects of compression. I am very impressed by the transparency and musicality of this pedal, and I love its tiny footprint! My prediction is the SP will soon become one of the most popular compressor pedals in history!
The new Xotic SP Compressor offers the same OTA (operational transconductance amplifier) technology used in what many guitar players consider the best compressor ever, the Ross Compressor. Our new SP Compressor has superb tone quality featuring a wide variety of compressor tones from vintage,to subtle, to modern and more. It's super flexible and features a dry blend knob, up to +15dB of boost and an internal dip switch for attack control. This compact design is a powerful tool for the working musicians.
