Whirlwind Rochester Series - The "Red Box" Compressor Pedal
The Red Box is a true classic and since its introduction in 1976 has been heard on countless landmark recordings. It's known best for its crisp, percussive attack as well as its lush, rich sustain while maintaining the natural, clear tone of your guitar.
A note from CCR's stage manager Tommy Mack:
Hey Willy, Thanks a bunch for sending the new pedals. I finally had time between the road and home to check 'em out. They are awesome!
I think these boxes sound like the original versions (MXR) but, better. more of a vintage/modern sound and clearly more attention to the highs and lows that are expected by players with an ear for that (If anyone can still hear..ha!). The distortion (gold) was a blast from the past with a modern touch...just fun as hell. Loved the phase as well, the cycles were smooth and very pronounced. All in all you've got a great product on your hands and I hope you have mucho success partner. Thanks a bunch again from all of us at the CCR camp for being so helpful and accommodating.
