The key to your dream guitar tone!

With compression and boost, Compadre packs everything you need to shape your front end tone.

Choose between two compression circuits, each with its own unique character.

Studio mode gives you the smooth, beautifully transparent studio-style compression.

For a harder, pedal-style compression, Compadre’s Squeeze mode delivers heavy compression with maximum sustain.

Compadre also serves up you two distinct analog boost circuits: a clean boost and a dirty boost.

The selectable boost EQ ensures the perfect compliment to any guitar and amp combination.

Whether you need to add some fatness to your tone, focus your mids, or balance out your chicken pickin', Compadre is sure to exceed your expectations!


Two premium compression circuits!

Compression is a great way to add fullness and balance to your guitar's tone, while tailoring how your dynamic range interacts with your pedals and amplifier.

Studio mode is designed to be smooth and transparent, controlling dynamics in the manner of classic rackmount compressors.

Squeeze mode conjures heavier compression with lots of sustain, squeezing every ounce of sonic excellence from your core guitar tone!


Independent Boost circuit.

Giving your guitar signal a boost can be the perfect way to add that extra sparkle and intensity!

Compadre’s independent boost section packs 3 EQ curves for a variety of styles.

Choose Flat for a transparent, full-frequency boost. Or, use it as a treble boost to add some grit and sparkle.

Select Mid for a punchy midrange boost that will secure your guitar's spot in the mix!
