Every guitarist loves the idea of a compressor, until they plug one in and find that it colors their tone, ruins their pick attack and is noisy as hell.

The CP101 is the perfect solution for players who need a compressor that doesn't get in the way of their tone. Its optical circuit has a slow, smooth reaction time that allows your initial note attack to pass through without being compressed, creating a more natural picking feel.

The CP101's 4:1 compression ratio is so subtle that it's easy to forget that it's on – until you turn it off, that is. While it is on, you'll notice note levels that are smoother and more consistent, chords and arpeggios that are tighter and more focused, and sustain that will last for days.

One thing you won't notice is the hiss and noise associated with VCA compressors – the CP101 has one of the lowest noise floors available in a stompbox Compressor, even with its Level and Compression controls set to max.

With its natural picking response, transparent effect and low-noise operation, the Maxon CP101 is the perfect compressor for players who hate using compressors.
