Shannon, oops, just re-read my post, did not mean your sound was any less, to clarify, I chose the compressor for a specific tone. I originally used this compressor on loan from a friend to use on our recording “Snow Samba” on my Hohner Solist. I liked what it could do and I wanted one for myself. These units were selling for about $900.00 in the US, a lot of money for a limitter/Compressor pedal. My comment should have read, “you can find one for a lot less that will work for you, and not “sound”. My apologies if it sounded awkward.
