Robert Keeley Compressor:
Better than a Ross Compressor clone, the Keeley Compressor is a true audiophile and studio grade compressor that sounds incredible!
The Keeley Compressor effect has nothing but tone tested components and has TRUE BYPASS switching. Effect switching incorporates a triple pole-double throw switch so that you'll have clean unaffected sound when in the bypass mode AND an LED for effect indication. Metal film resistors and capacitors ensure the cleanest compressor on the market. Hand matched transistors (to less than 1% tolerance) ensure you get a perfectly compressed signal with no chance for unwanted distortion. For those wanting a better tone than that of Trey Anastasio from Phish or David Gilmore of Pink Floyd or the Edge of U2 this is it! Nashville/Country guys: you don't know what you're missing. Toss that old red Dyna Comp and stay one step better than the other guy's tone! The TOP Studio Guitar Player in Japan, Masaki Matsubara, uses a Keeley Compressor! The Top studio guitar player of Puerto Rico uses a Keeley Compressor.
The sound quality of the Keeley comp is unheard of in the stomp-box arena and is only seen in the high-end, very expensive rack-mount or tube equipment.
4 Knob Version: The Keeley 4 Knob Compressor features Sustain and Level just like all other compressors, but the Input Trim and Attack controls are now on top for easy adjustment. This is perfect for high output guitars, bases, line level instruments, recording, etc.

If I only had one effect I could use for the rest of my life, this one's a no-brainer. This is the perfect effect to leave on all the time. An invaluable tone tool. Worth every penny. Works with other FX well. A basically universally useful and indispensable addition to anyone's gig bag, especially those who play cleaner styles of music; country guitarists owe it to themselves to at least try one out.

There is a reason why this is the benchmark guitar compressor. Not cheap but worth every penny.

I get a very warm sound with different gain settings and TONS of SUSTAIN!!! ... I can go from Robben Ford/Larry Carlton sound to Santana sounds to Vai, Satriani, Malmsteen... The Keeley Compressor really is a key part of my overall tone. I used the MXR Dyna Comp before which was ok, however noticed that it would add distortion to my clean sound and that's not what I wanted. Keeley is very transparent but adds more TONE to the overall sound. If you are in the market of getting a compressor do your research and decide what you want to get... there are a lot of low price compressors out there (MXR, BOSS etc...) but I think if you want something pro sounding you will need to look at Keeley for THE SOUND!!
