    Now that I feel worthy enough, I am looking into pedals. Started playing guitar some 2.5 yrs ago. Getting good enough to not dwell on what my fingers are doing.Now I can think about pedals. I'll leave you guessing. It's shipped from Calif. I chose 3-day shipping, so by Monday?

    I’m curious if you actually get it in 3 days

    In today’s shipping climate I’d never pay more for expedited shipping, although maybe you’ll get it in a week and a half rather than two

    It’s so hit or miss

    Dang tangents

    I don’t know of any pedal tube compressor, I didn’t even know that was a thing

    It's scheduled to arrive Saturday. I don't expect it till Monday, really. USPS
    I found only 2 outlets that had it for sale here in the US. West Coast or East Coast.

    Subscribed - I am currently making the rounds of compressors myself.

    And let's hear it when you get it - that way we can determine if this is a gear post or a vanity post...............:D

    I've had a MXR Dyna Comp since 1980 I think,(no tube) and could never tell what it was supposed to do. I opened it up a few weeks ago and the foam had rotted over time. What exactly do they do?

    I just got a Bogner Ecstasy Blue delivered 1200 miles super fast today, and a seller just re shipped some midi cables sent in December.
    Good luck!

    I’d buy a cheap EHX two tube compressor if I saw one.

    I forget what the knobs say but crank the comp up full and turn level or output way down to get unity gain. You should hear the rubbery attack then.

    I squinted at mine for years, checking the battery etc.
