The Pigtronix Philosopher King Envelope Comp Pedal is a compressor pedal, sustainer, distortion pedal and polyphonic amplitude synthesizer all in one sleek package. The Pigtronix Philosopher King takes the award-winning Pigtronix Philosophers Tone compressor pedal further, adding a full set of ADSR controls including swell, fade, hold level, speed range, one-shot mode, selectable auto reset, CV i/o and expression pedals for swell and fade times. With the Swell and Fade functions switched off, the Pigtronix Philosopher King provides transparent optical compression with endless sustain on tap. Adjustable compression, sustain and treble controls allow the musician to tailor the nature of the effect to meet the needs of the material at hand. From a subtle dash of added punch to massive, over-the-top howling sustain, the Philosopher King delivers clean, powerful optical compression. The grit control blends in a layer of sweet harmonic distortion that plays nice with other gain pedals as well as amplifier-generated tube distortion. The Pigtronix Philosopher King’s Swell function provides a pick triggered volume swell effect. The volume swell can be reset at any moment by muting or held open by continuous playing. This “slow gear” type effect is smooth and controllable with variable timing from extremely fast to very slow. The Fade function creates pulsating tremolo and stutter effects on its own as well as undulating amplitude modulation when used in conjunction with the Swell.
The Pigtronix Philosopher King is a modern analog masterpiece, unmatched in its ability to re-shape the essential nature of any sound source.

About Compressor Guitar Effect Pedals
A compressor pedal is most commonly used to enhance the sound of a clean guitar making the notes last longer and also suppressing sharp or loud notes, hence compressing them in to a set level making the sound smoother. Notes that are played with a clean guitar tone often lack sustain and begin to decay quickly after the guitar string is plucked. Using a compression pedal will also extend the life of the guitar note by raising the volume as it decays, and sometimes they are mixed together as compressor pedal and sustain pedal, squashing the loud notes and boosting the quiet notes. A compressor pedal, when used correctly is a valuable piece of equipment and is often found on most guitar player pedal boards. There are a wide range of compressor effect pedals on the market from a large number of well known manufacturers. Check out popular examples of these pedals by leading companies like Fender The Bends Compressor, and the Pigtronix Philosophers Tone. Cheaper models to consider are the Caline Hot Mushroom Compressor and the Donner Ultimate Compressor which do a job.
There are a wide range of boutique compressor effect pedals to choose from as well, however these are generally hand made and can be costly for instance check out the the Red Witch Seven Sisters Grace Compressor made by boutique effect pedal manufacturer Red Witch and the Keeley KCPro Compressor plus the MXR Dyna Comp. Expensive but they are the choice of professional guitar players so must be good. Review the full range of compressor guitar effect pedals.
