The Squeeze Box

All tube, transformerless optical compressor.


Studio Quality in a Stompbox.


The Squeeze Box is an all tube optical compressor that draws comparison to some of the most venerated studio equipment ever made. It’s been formatted for live and studio use on electric instruments, but can be equally at home patched across drums, vocals, or any acoustic source. It goes from transparent to aggressive and back again effortlessly, and offers expanded tone shaping controls, allowing for subtle to extreme equalization and driving amplifier inputs with all tube gain.

'That' Sound, Wherever You Go.


Whether you're finishing a session in the studio or playing your next gig, The Squeeze Box offers the same studio quality compression wherever you are. With an effortless balance between transparancy and aggression, The Squeeze Box offers expanded controls to help you shape your tone. Boasting a super low noise floor, amazing frequency response, and a classic all tube design, you may find yourself hard pressed to find a better opto compressor, rackmount or otherwise.
