Wren and Cuff Gold Comp - Germanium Compressor / Pre-Amp


Wren and Cuff

The Gold comp really is a truly special pedal. A year and a half of experimenting, tweaking, refining, and testing has resulted in a pedal worthy of the Wren and Cuff name.

Two hand-tested vintage Germanium transistors in the circuit provide a natural warmth and super smooth clipping that has to be heard to be believed. The Gold Comp can go from a barely noticeable compression sitting inside of a cozy Germanium pre-amp, all the way to total old-school dirty squash with the twist of a couple knobs. And no matter what, the Gold Comp will always add a subtle sweetness to your tone. Pull back on the compression, attack, and release, and you’ll have a fantastic pre-amp/boost similar to our own Phat Phuk.

There often seems to be a divide between “transparent” and “dirty” compressors, the thought being that you’d need one pedal for each purpose. The Gold Comp proves that you can have both within one unit.

Experienced players who love to dial in things just right will appreciate the four control layout, and those new to the world of compressors need not be intimidated. The Gold comp sound is complex, but the operation is simple.

Constructed to the level of quality that Wren and Cuff has built its reputation on, Made in the USA, with a lifetime warranty, this is a pedal you simply can’t go wrong with.
