Very affordable and natrual sounding compressor
White Ship Caused the Anarchy, 20.08.2018
I have used this compressor on guitar and bass and have found it to be:

Pros:
+Very quiet even when using a high amount of compression
+Natural sounding via the blend knob
+LED light that shows operation which is a unique selling point
+Highly competitive price
+Switchable LED lights on knobs
+Battery hatch that is accessible without a screw driver
+Works great on bass as well as guitar

Negatives
-It is a bit big and bulky
-LEDs are quite bright (all of them) this could be distracting on stage

All in all a solid product
KZ-K, 20.05.2020
It has so many possible setups.
Works great at dark (in case you need to quickly turn down or up the knobs).
Best part of design is the easy access to battery but that also makes it a bit chunkier than other pedals, and when it comes to sound you can make with it of course it's the matter of taste you have but I happen to enjoy it very much.

Kein Spezialist - kein Allrounder - nicht gut nicht schlecht - mmmh ...
Henning29, 27.02.2019
Kompressoren können für völlig verschiedene Zwecke benutzt werden. Da diese Zwecke sehr unterschiedlich sind, haben sich dafür verschiedene Geräte als Standard etabliert: MXR Dyna comp, Keeley 2 knob, Xotic SP, Boss CS ...

Der Fender the bends macht m. E. den Fehler alle Richtungen bedienen zu wollen. In den Extremen hält er aber mit den anderen Geräten nicht mit (z. B. MXR Dyna Comp für "Chicken Picking") und als Allrounder taugt er auch nicht richtig (der Keeley Compressor Plus ist m. E. dafür besser).

Nicht falsch verstehen, - schlecht ist er nicht, aber richtig gut irgendwie auch nicht. Vielleicht liegt es auch an mir ... (bin eigentlich Fender-Fan).

Gehäuse fühlt sich wertig an, Regler toll, Haptik ist klasse, neues Batteriefach ne super Idee, Beleuchtung klasse! Nur der Sound scheinbar nicht meiner ...

Ich habe wieder meinen alten, kleinen, grünen Fender COMP (... der angeblich von Mooer ist ...) auf dem Board und bin damit ehrlich gesagt glücklicher!

Kaufen? Mmmh - nö!

+1 Para Fender (otra vez)
Llompi, 29.07.2019
Necesitaba un compresor para darle ese punto de claridad o "estabilidad" a mi sonido, para alterar lo menos posible quería que fuera True Bypass y este te brinda la opción de seleccionar el nivel de compresión que quieres en la señal, luego ya eliges el ataque etc... Sirve como boost de sonido, con el poti "Level" puedes hacer que al activar el pedal suenes mas fuerte. Como contra si no has usado nunca un compressor este me parece mas difícil de entender que otros que he usado o visto.
