    Dude, not to be mean, but you need to search a little harder. This question - or similar - gets asked weekly.

    It really depends on the pedal. As an example, my Aphex Punch Factory doesn't change my clean sound at all (even cranked), but put a dist in front of it (english muff'n) in this case, and it makes it sound better/:cool:er. But, some other comps can really effect your tone. Check the compressor sticky at the top for some reviews on different pedals. And, don't forget to try some out, and hear for yourself.
