After a ridiculous amount of time spent scouring the ends of the Internet in search of the best compression pedal for me, I’ve decided on the Diamond (which as of now I can only find used which I don’t love) or the Wampler Ego (with Blend control).
I like the subtle simplicity of the Diamond but I’m not a fan of buying used pedals. The Wampler will require way more tinkering (which I’m not a big fan of) on my part but I’ve yet to hear anyone do anything but rave about the Wampler.
So I ultimately found a new Diamond CPR-1 Compression pedal.
It arrived yesterday. Bought it on Reverb.
It doesn’t work.
Step on the switch, the light turns green and it just kills the signal completely.
I sent the seller (The Guitar Sanctuary) a message yesterday. Haven’t heard back yet.
