The Warden is a highly customiseable compressor pedal with an incredibly high build quality. In addition to the usual controls, the Release knob defines how quickly the signal goes to the sustain and ratio level. Ratio defines how much gain impacts the signal. The pedal does slightly colour tone, the Tone control defines to what extent.
Perfect as an always on pedal whether you want subtle, fat or super squished tone.
