COMPRESSION / OVERDRIVE REVIEW
A TINY COMPRESSOR AND A DRIVE PEDAL WITH PLENTY OF TWEAKABILITY
July 2021 brings two of our mini pedals into Guitar Magazine’s spotlight: The CompIQ MINI ONE Pro Compressor and the newly launched Ziffer Overdrive. They are both powerful options for modular compression/overdrive effects processing.
Sometimes available as a combo, these two effects are probably the most used ones in the guitar world, and for good reason. The compression offers control over the peaks dynamic and the overdrive introduces the amount of grit that is most desirable for basically any rock’n’roll style.
“All Becos pedals share a few key features: they’re all black with white lettering, they all squeeze in more controls than might appear physically possible… and they all seem to score 9/10 from us because they’re frickin’ great.”
Here’s the Guitar Magazine verdict, accompanied by Editor’s Choice badge:
Ziffer Overdrive – It e nhances the classic Tube Screamer formula in ways that are clever and useful.
CompIQ MINI ONE – Simplified but as brilliant as ever, this is as good as mini compressor pedals get.
