“Here’s one of a few effects for which it doesn’t matter which musical genre you perform and what playing style you represent. A little help with controlling your dynamics is always welcome and you will ultimately convince yourself of this little truth while using the latest Seymour Duncan Vise Grip Compressor.”

“It is not a typical compressor, but its combination with a sustainer, with half of the parameters being set automatically. This is what compactness means – the unit must be useful for any amateur player, not only those studio specialists who know how to handle every single aspect of compression.”

“The effect is built with highest care towards the quality of signal path, with the use of the highest class elements, being properly prepared both professional studio recordings and long concert tours.”
