Make Your Sound Even Better. The MultiComp Guitar Edition can make a good sounding guitar sound even better. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll never want to play without it! The EBS MultiComp Guitar Edition is optimized for use with guitar, and strikes the perfect balance of being super user friendly and offering super sonic qualities.
Less is more. The MultiComp may be the easiest compressor around to dial in. Since it is so smooth and well though out, all you need is to set the level of Comp/Limit with one knob, Gain with another, and then choose the type or mode of compression betweenTubeism, Multi Band (MB) and Normal. Done! For those that need more, there is an Active/Passive switch on the side as well as an internal trim pot for the Threshold located under the hood.

REVIEW from GUITARIST MAGAZINE, UK, September issue 2015
“Most interesting, however, is the MB mode where the bass and treble compressors work independently so neither end of the spectrum unnaturally affects the other. That multi-band facility, rare in a pedal, could make this your go-to compressor, 9/10” - Guitarist Choice Award.
REVIEW from iGuitar Magazine, UK, issue 36 - 2015
“This (MultiCompGE) is an impressive, easy to use, transparent compressor pedal. I like the fact it’s very easy to dial in great sounds. I also liked the three way switch that gives you instant access to typical compressed sounds. Even all the way up it didn't squish the tone to a horrible unmusical amount and it sounds really good”.

REVIEW from GUITAR & BASS MAGAZINE, UK
“As stompbox compressors go, they don’t get much better than this. With a wide tonal palette and plenty of options, it could last you for an entire career”.
“(The MultiComps’s) TubeSim mode adds warmth to clean tones, and can really help fatten up vintage-voiced single coils for both chords and single notes…In short, this is an impressive compressor that we’re confident will improve your tone - as it did ours”.
