Orange Squeezer Compressor

Hot! Orange Squeezer Compressor

Simple but nicely effective compressor kit. A lot of compressors have huge parts counts, but this one keeps it real and does what it says with the minimum of fuss.

Subtle - and necessary 5 product stars
"A simple build, with a single volume control - but don't let that fool you. There's enough compression in the trim-pot to go from a subtle 'something' to a full-on squish. My Telecaster has never sounded so good - can't wait to hit my high gain half stack with this little beast tomorrow night. Another excellent, well documented Fuzz Dog kit. Cheers!" Ian - 21/10/2018
fantastic pedal, great support 5 product stars
"the pedal sounds fantastic and fuzzdog's support is always faster than light! I've done many fuzzdog kits, all great kits. maybe the led-bezel could be better." giorgio - 22/10/2015
Everyone should have one of these 5 product stars
"The orange squeezer is a great alternative to the Ross/Keeley. I now have all three and I'd say the OS is the most transparent of all. No wonder Mark Knopfler used one! It's a simple build and way, way cheaper than the others. A great kit to build - very quick and easy and fits easily into a 1590B with a battery (I bought the enclosure separately, drilled it, painted it bright orange and built the kit while the paint dried. Love it!" Tim O. - 04/09/2015
