Posted the final, after tax price for my ZIP code. A great bang for buck deal on this guitar pedal.

For those who don't know what compressors do, this is a great Youtube review of what the pedal is like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DTQGN9fFzJc

DOD Compressor 280:
Tame Peaks, Smooth Sustains, Save Bucks

When the DOD Compressor 280 debuted decades ago, guitarists everywhere fell in love with that smooth sustain and squeeze that only an electro-optical compressor can deliver. We've updated that classic design with true bypass circuitry, status LED and a pedalboard-friendly 9V DC power supply input. The 280 is two-knob simple: Set your overall volume, dial in your desired amount of compression from subtle to squash, and you're on your way to taming those peaks and tightening up that performance.

While supplies last, grab yours for just $44.99—that's a savings of 64%.

For a limited time you can get Free Ground Shipping* on all orders placed through DigiTech.com or HarmanAudio.com. Offers only available in the US.*

Can you honestly say a single person has ever found you funny?
I find it works better with high output pickups than single coil low output pickups. Too much noise with the latter and you would need a noise gate too which makes the sound as subtle as a bagpipe.

I used to use this a lot earlier but with a typical Strat single coil, an overdrive with a power booster works better especially for solos with bluesy vibratos unless you are looking to sustain a very clean sound (you wouldn't be using the Strat much in that case anyway Smilie ).
I would check out the used market first. These things go pretty cheap used.

In terms of whether this is good value for you, I can't really say. The list price is totally outrageous so it is less of a discount than it appears. It depends on what you play and what tone you are trying to achieve. I would't buy it just because it is heavily discounted unless I knew that is what I wanted for my sound. Compressors by themselves have a narrow application where they are useful or have to be in conjunction with something else.

If all you want is sustain for a very clean sound, this might work. For something with some distortion an overdrive would work better. If you are looking for the British tone, the $40 Dyna Comp may work better. Of course, it also depends a lot on what amp you are playing through.

In other words, don't be lured by the price. Figure out if you really need it.

If you haven't played with a lot of pedals before or don't know yet what kind of sound you would like to get, I would actually suggest getting one of the digitech multi-effect units (not the cheapest one but something that has a USB port to control it with software) that will allow you to experiment with the equivalent of a large number of effects to figure which effect does what and which effects/tones you prefer. You might find that is good enough or you can later substitute the chain settings like with discrete pedals for better quality of sound.

I went through a phase where I was buying a lot of pedals hoping each one would help what I was looking for but it was an expensive and inefficient way to go about it. Most of them would end up in the storage room. Smilie

I usually use compression when mixing audio tracks in software form but not really on live guitar (sometimes bass). I haven't liked other compressors but I love DOD/Digitech and Orange is my favorite color so it must be a sign. Gonna try this one out. Especially at this price!

Do you think this is a good price and worth it if Im getting some humbuckers in the future?

Please expand on the subject at hand. Don't pick on anyone. But also, don't limit your response.

if someone is looking to get together the comp for around $45, and the mosfet distortion for around $84 = $129.

I should probably contact Harman, but did anyone else buy the phaser and get a pedal that effectively muted their guitar? I can't get mine to make any damn sound unless it's off. Seems broken.

I've built multiple pedals from PcB/components so I'd hate to find out I'm dumb and the pedal requires a battery to pass signal or something weird.

Sucks, I was excited about a little phaser and don't really care too much which make/model I play these days.
