Hi, I'm fairly new to this whole effects ordeal, but I've recently become interested in buying a compression and chorus pedal. But I have a few questions regarding them. (I'm sorry if these questions have been answered in other posts, but I don't have enough time to browse the forums in search of answers ) Anyways... 1. What exactly is possible with a compression pedal? From what I've read it is mostly used to even out your sound, a cutting highs and raising lows kind of thing. I've also read that you can vary your tone a great deal with a compression pedal, giving you a punchier tone, which is mainly what I am interested in. What's the deal-i-o? 2. Is it possible to damage any sort of pedal in any way? Like using the pedal together with another type instrument or a microphone? 3. If I want a chorus pedal and a compression pedal which will let me tweak my sound as much as possible, what should I look into? Any special brands that are recommended or that one should stay clear of? Thanks in advance!
