What is your opinion of this product?
I've played without compression for so long, I don't even know, so, I guess, it can be done. Now, it is one of two pedals that is always on-EQ being the other. This is a great pedal. If you have never used comp/sust, try it. You will want one(especially if you record), maybe not this one in particular, but you will want one and this one is fantastic.
