When the guitar-slinging engineers at Denmark’s T-Rex Engineering decided to expand their range of premium pedals with a brand new compressor, they went out and tested every compression unit on the market. What they discovered was simple: all the units they tested had all the features a compressor should have, but none of them offered the finely crafted tone that T-Rex pedals are famous for.

    Comp-Nova was created to solve this problem. With its perfectly simple set of controls and pure, naturally compressed sound, this pedal is compression done right. It delivers a subtle, musical compression – no matter whether you’re using it to even out funky single note lines, add sustain to searing leads, or take the edge off an acoustic rhythm part. And like every pedal T-Rex makes, Comp-Nova delivers a warm, natural tone that brings out the original richness of your instrument and the way you play it.

    Never tried a compressor?

    If you’ve never used a compressor before, the effect can seem complicated at first. But it only takes an hour or so of experimenting and you’ll discover a world of settings that add the subtle enhancement only a compressor can provide. From adding sustain to creating funky gated effects, compression is the effect that separates the men from the boys in the world of guitar wizardry.
