I love it. I should have written a follow up. It works beautifully with bass. It is super quiet. It doesn’t remove any high-end frequencies, that I can hear anyway. I think the blend knob is the real secret here. I considered the Platform because it is very flexible and has other nice features, but all I really needed was the compressor and I’m trying to stay as analogue as possible. I’m not a total analogue snob, I have a Small Stone and a Canyon Delay in my chain, but I just prefer to stay analogue as much as possible because it tends to match the input and output impedances and levels best, and also produces the least amount of noise. Strangely a lot of the digital circuits produce noise that can be transmitted through the power cables and radio type interference.
So, anyway, I really like the Tone Corset, and I think that a large percentage of electric guitar players underestimate the usefulness of a compressor, especially a four knob compressor like this one with a blend.
I should add that it makes my Danelectro 12 String electric sound fantastic. It really evens out the octaves. It makes my Taylor acoustic sound fantastic. It makes my ukulele with a piezo pickup sound fantastic. I use it for everything at the beginning of the effects chain, even if I’m not using anything else but the Tone Corset. It’s my most indispensable “effect”.
