HomeBrew Electronics Compressor Retro:
Modeled after a coveted vintage compressor circuit, the Compressor Retro is a pedal you may want to keep "ON" all of the time. The Compressor Retro is extremely transparent and quiet. You can use it on any instrument to obtain a singing sustain without the hiss, noise, and annoyances associated with other compression pedals.
HomeBrew Electronics is a small company dedicated to making quality pedals at affordable prices. All pedals are hand wired and hand assembled using the best quality components possible. HomeBrew feels that pedal designs suffer because of inferior components, improper construction, and shortcuts. HomeBrew has produced a line of pedals that they feel are superior to most commercially produced pedals, yet cheaper than most "boutique" pedals.
All HomeBrew pedals feature true hardwire bypass, are handpainted & hand-decaled (minor imperfections may be visible), and are built one at a time, by hand, in the Homebrew shop. The highest quality components are used to achieve the best tone possible.

HARMONY CENTRAL USER REVIEW, 10/23/2003:
"I play all styles of music, and this works great for everything. Again, I miss it when it's not on, so I couldn't live without it now! I have played for 20 years+ and play mostly homemade (Warmoth ) strats and teles. But play Les Pauls, and a great Wahburn Semi Solid Sammy Hagar model ( great jazz and blues tone with a pickup change). Amps are Bassman Reissue, Silver Face Super Reverb (non master late 60's ish?), and I have a Marshall DSL 50 for the rock gigs. I would have to flat bawl my head off if something happened to this. I would replace it in half a heartbeat, and put out a voodoo curse on whoever took it. I really love the sonic blue paint and cream knobs. Really has that cool retro look ( it fits, it's full name is the ComPressor Retro = CPR). Sounded way better than the MXR or Boss stuff I compared it with. I was even thinking of getting an Alesis for compression, but this sounds better. Again it's a compressor. They don't reach out and grab you like a new overdrive and slap you in the face. They are NOT supposed to. The test is when you miss it if it's gone. This is the one! Without it my tone is like a Hamburger with no bun. It tastes fine, but it's just missing something, and then what's the point. Bottom line. If you need a compressor BUY THIS ONE. FORGET ANYTHING ELSE!!!"
