Hi TB I am interested in getting a pedal, with the idea that it will be for live sound. Mostly jamming with some folks I play with but I do a couple small gigs a year for fun. I'm totally new to effects, but I have an idea that I could clean up the sound and/or make a soundman's job easier if I used some kind of pedal. Mostly what I have in mind is a compressor, but I'm not sure. My budget is pretty small. Definitely under $200 and hopefully a lot closer to $100. But I'm not necessarily looking for a specific pedal so much as advice on the type of pedal. Can anyone help out a pedal newbie?
