"First produced in 1979 and a good choice for home studio use, as the range of signal boosting is mixer-friendly. For players looking for clean-tone compression a la Nashville, this is a winner because it's nowhere near as noisy as most block MXRs or the standard Boss fare, and the lowest compression ratios let triads and diatonic runs ring through. For folks looking for that "thick overdrive" sound, it's probably best applied in small doses before your pedals or hot preamp -- you may have to dial back your guitar's volume to get chords to sound clearly."
