  • Barber Tone Press vs. Keeley Compressor?

    Looking for opinions on the two. I am looking for something that will work great for clean tones and high gain rhythms and leads. Something that I wouldn't mind keeping on all the time.

    If you're using a lot of gain, chances are you won't hear a difference, thus you'll be keeping it on.


    The blend control on the Tone Press has a lot of people excited. This is the one I want, and it's much cheaper!

      Get the Tone Press. See my sig for my pedal board. The Tone Press stays on all the time. Plus, it's $150. You can't go wrong with the TP, IMO!

          I've never compared with a Keeley but I really like my Tone Press. Yes, the blend feature comes in very handy. If you want the typical squash effect it's there but you can blend it down so your pick attack is natural but still get the benefit of more sustain.

            i had the keeley 4 knob and the tone press. i loved the tone press and want another.(i reluctantly traded it away). the keeley didn't play well with my other pedals, and was noisy.

              The blend feature on the TP rules. I snagged one for $80 used. If I didn't come across that deal I was going to pick up the Wampler Ego comp. I still want the Ego comp though. Never tried the Keeley.
