I've been incredibly impressed by the VT-Comp - it's subtle, dynamic and extremely musical in its response. It's not leaving my board any time soon.

A list of just a few of the current pedal type compressors that I own. The first Compressor that I ever owned, an original 1976 MXR Dyna Comp, a Keely 2, and 4 knob comp, a Pigtronix Tone Comp, a Wampler Ego Comp, a Carl Martin Comp, 2 Xotic SP Comps, an Electro-Harmonix Soul Preacher, an MXR Custom Comp, and Super Comp, an EBS MultiComp, and a Rivera Sustain Shaman. However, the Nemphasis VT-COMP is hands down the most transparent, and musical pedal compressor that I've ever tried.

dynamic squeeze to a full on stomp.
