The Whitey Tighty is a three-button FET compressor with volume, compression, and blend settings. The Volume control allows you to set your volume at unity gain or slightly boosted to compensate for any perceived compression loss. The Compression knob adjusts the amount of compression applied to your tone, ranging from a slight smoothing to a satisfying squash that's ideal for country, blues, pop, and rock. To get the correct amount of clean tone with your compressed signal, use the Blend knob. This lets you to keep part of your clean tone's natural feel while adding studio-quality compression to take your sound to the next level.
