Donner Compressor Pedal, Ultimate Comp 2 Modes Compression Effect Pedal Pure Analog for Electric Guitar and Bass True Bypass
About this deal
Bottom Line: The Studio Bass offers a lot of value for its price. It sounds great, with a good assortment of usable tones under its belt, it’s very quiet during operation, and comes with a few nice extras in the box. This digital compressor uses a multiband compression algorithm to separate the incoming signal into 3 different frequency bands and give each one a different amount of compression. With these features, you get a brilliant sounding tone and whole new possibilities to explore.

The pedal features three different compressor modes: Spectra, TonePrint, and Vintage. The first one is the default compression mode. The second one is to use the presets from the application and the final one, the Vintage mode, lets you enjoy old-school compression tones. With this mode, you can have all of the squash and squeeze of the classical stompbox compression pedals. The mode performs especially outstanding with funk and country as well as Gilmour-like sustained tones. The pedal features three adjustment knobs for level, tone, and compressor, along with a 2-way tone switch which you can switch between normal and treble modes. Furthermore, there is a True Bypass button that lets you turn on and off the compressing effect. Finally, there is a LED indicator that shows you if the pedal is engaged or not.
Tone Selector: Switches between two modes: NORMAL: Neutral compression tone. TREBLE: Brighter compression tone.
Donner Ultimate Comp - Review of Compressor Effect Pedal
If you have worked with cheaper pedals before, you probably know that sometimes you should take them with a grain of salt. Since they are so inexpensive the brands have to compromise one thing or another – that is the reality we all have to accept. In the case of Donner Ultimate Comp, the build quality (which is usually the easiest one to give up by the manufacturers) is quite beautiful. It is made out of Aluminum-alloy and the insides seem pretty durable as well.Key Specs: The Multi-Comp is an analog multi-band compressor pedal with a simple 2 knob layout. The Comp/Limit knob sets the desired compression ratio from 1:1 up to 5:1, while the gain knob sets the output volume or make-up gain of the pedal. The 3-way mode selector switches between compression modes: TubeSim, Multi-Band, and Normal. The threshold can be adjusted via 2 Internal trim pots for each of the 2 frequency bands. There’s an active/passive switch on the left side of the pedal, used when playing active or passive basses, and it features true bypass switching. It can also run on a 9V battery or 9V-12V PSU.
