Enter the Strymon OB.1. It doesn’t need a tone knob. It’s just your guitar sound, with compression added. It doesn't change your tone one bit. The compression is lax, gently focusing it, rather than squashing it. Not only that, it has an added boost switch that is switchable from a flat clean boost, to a mids boost, to a treble boost. Optical compression in a pedal, all analog circuit path, very well-built, inside and out.
The Strymon OB1 Clean Boost Optical Compressor is the perfect pedal to go first in your chain before any other effects. That's because it can sculpt your tone in a way that's transparent and yet when you turn it off you'll miss it somehow. It's basically a 'better' button! On the outside you are given control over output and compression levels as well as the level of footswitchable boost and whether you want a treble, middle, or flat boost. There are also internal dip switches that allow you to set the desired frequency of the treble/mid boost. The optical compression can give you tones from subtle studio effected tones through to outright squashed flat vintage pumping compression. The tones are incredible and there are few pedals that match up head to head on tone or features!Why We Love Strymon
Damage Control was founded in 2004 with the release of their line of tube-driven effects pedals, which earned critical acclaim and became favorites among guitarists across the globe. In 2009 they began developing products under the Strymon name, and the rest is history! Strymon is known for their pursuit of building products with no compromises, that push the limits of technology in music, and redefine what is possible with music gear. Their innovations in single-purpose, multi-effect pedals in Reverb, Delay, and Modulation alone have changed and revolutionized the effects pedal market. At Lucci, not only do our guitarists love Strymon, most of them have one or more of their pedals on their pedal boards.
