There's nothing more curious to guitarists than a compressor pedal. For some, it’s something they can’t live without; for others, it’s completely unnecessary. This is understandable because, depending upon your rig and application, a compressor can do wonders for your tone – or get in the way of it. 

But for those looking for unimpeded and detailed sonic enhancement, consider the sterling Becos FX CompIQ Mini Pro Compressor. Somehow, this specialized Romanian effect-pedal manufacturer managed to cram a studio-grade VCA-style compressor into a feature-laden mini-sized pedal. To say I’m flat-out impressed with this small wonder is no overstatement.

Paul Riario has been the tech/gear editor and online video presence for Guitar World for over 25 years. Paul is one of the few gear editors who has actually played and owned nearly all the original gear that most guitarists wax poetically about, and has survived this long by knowing every useless musical tidbit of classic rock, new wave, hair metal, grunge, and alternative genres. When Paul is not riding his road bike at any given moment, he remains a working musician, playing in two bands called SuperTrans Am and Radio Nashville.
