There isn’t a compressor that’s more sought after than Diamond’s yellow box. This next-gen compressor maintains the classic circuit architecture while increasing range and functionality. The new EQ section allows you to sculpt your tone in the same box that squashes it (that’s a good thing). Furthermore, the tilt switch allows you to go from the signature ultra-snappy Diamond comp style all the way to softer transparent compression.

What a buzzword “compression” is. But as soon as you slap one into your chain, you can never go back. Applicable in almost every situation, compression is the glue that keeps your tone tight and in the pocket. While the original Diamond Compressor was a formidable pedal, we can confidently say that this next-generation is the best version of the Diamond Compressor yet.
We are serious when we say this pedal will always be on. Whether you’re looking for the snappiest compression to compliment your intricate funk leads, or soft transparent style compression to just add that perfect final touch to your tone, the Diamond Comp/EQ can do it all. So here’s how to use your new “always-on” pedal.
Place the Comp/EQ at the very beginning of your signal chain for a traditional compression effect or place it at the very end of the chain to act as a limiter. Need a boost? Place the Comp/EQ behind your drives and fuzzes to with the Comp set low to send your leads soaring!
