    Just got my new FEA today. I am SUPER excited to play around with it.

    Congrats!

    I've had GAS for the dual-band and dual-engine FEA comps, but after your review I suspect they'll have company. :D

    This thing is amazing!
    I can't believe how quiet it is.
    The three band EQ is so cool.
    I can make the D and G strings sound fuller and yet not over compress the E and A strings.
    Also, no matter how much squish I add it never gets muddy. I don't know how that's possible, but Frank pulled it off.
    I now understand why FEA Labs (and Origin Effects) are the gold standard of compression pedals.

    Love my opti-fet. It's my favorite of the FEA comps. The side chain EQ is super useful. I roll back the bass ever so slightly.
