    I got EBS MultiCOmp black label pedal.
    I heard that i can increase the amount of compression
    by opening the back cover and modifying it.
    is it true ? where is exactlt the modification button ?

    Yes, you can fine-tune the hi and lo band compression with the internal pots.

    Did you get a manual with the pedal? If not, download the pdf manual here:

    Go to the "Advanced Technical Options" section and look for "Adjusting Threshold Levels." There's a diagram there as well, showing you exactly where the adjustment screws are.

    if you're clumsy and take a screwdriver to the circuit board instead of the trim pot, then sure.

    but otherwise, it's an easy mod.
