JangleBox Compressor Pedal (http://www.janglebox.com)
Anyone try one of these, especially with an 8-string emando? I've been very happy with my tone sans pedals, but I wonder if something like this could give me more Rickenbacker-y sort of jangle?
No, how is this different from the many other compression devises?
my DSP has a compressor in its many EFX, bundled.
a 'how much' knob is its only control. gain is for unit, not each effect.
I would think the best way to get that jangly sound would be to not tune your string pairs precisely. Somehow I have a hard time with the idea that compression would give that effect.
Point taken. I have played with detuned pairs on the electric, but didn't like it much.
maybe with your lower pairs use one regular gauge and one unwound thin gauge and tune the unwound string to an octave like a 12 string...just a thought
As a followup, the JangleBox didn't sound very good with the mandolin. Recently I bought a Guyatone ST2 Compressor which really does work well.
