Diamond Pedals Compressor : l'avis de moosers (contenu en anglais)

The Diamond Pedal Compressor has pretty basic characteristics.  The compressor is designed for electric guitar but is suitable for use with any electric instrument.  The pedal has standard 1/4 inch connections for input and output and is powered by a nine volt power supply.  It is an analog pedal that isn't rack mountable as it is a foot pedal.


The make up of the Diamond Pedal Compressor is just about as simple as it gets for a guitar pedal.  You've only got three parameters - compression, EQ (tone), and volume, so even if you have minimal experience working with compressors, I think you'll be able to catch on to everything going on here rather quickly.  Beyond the three major parameters there really isn't anything else to take into consideration, so I don't believe that a manual is necessary unless you are having some sort of technical difficulty.


While I can't say that the Diamond Pedal Compressor is my favorite compression pedal in the world, it definitely has an overall great tone.  I've used a lot of different compression pedals out there, and this is one of the better models that I've used.  I've only used the pedal with electric guitar - usually a Fender Strat or Jazzmaster and a '76 Fender Twin Reverb, and I find I'm able to get the types of sounds that I want within this configuration.  The compression tone can be described as punchy and clean, although I do wish that I would be able to get more varying types of tones with this pedal...


For me, the only problem with the Diamond Pedal Compressor is the price.  While it is a very good sounding compressor, I have found some similar sounding compression pedals for half of the price like the MXR Dyna Comp for example.  This isn't to say that this isn't a great sounding compression pedal and that it won't get the job done in most situations, it's just that I wish it was a bit less expensive.  Having said that, if you're looking for a great sounding compression pedal, this one should definitely be in the conversation as not considering the price it is a great pedal.
