For a compressor that’s worthy as an effect in itself, that’s distinctive and provides proper punch to your tone, the legendary Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer has until now been unparalleled. The Fredric Effects Zesty Comp dutifully recreates this highly sought after effect with an added input gain knob and a switch for three levels of compression to compensate for lower output single coil pickups. Originals are expensive and hard to come by so for super squishy compression that tightens the dynamics of the music without adding noise to the signal, the Zesty Comp delivers. In addition thanks to it’s healthy output, it’s also excellent as a very musical boost.
Boutique pedals minus the boutique price tag, handmade by local London art rockers and adorned with delicately screen-printed graphics, Fredric Effects stompboxes are durable, high quality, worthy clones of classic rare effects.
