The Digitech X-Series Main Squeeze is a digital compression pedal designed for electric guitar but suitable for any electronic instrument.  The pedal has a 1/4 inch input and two 1/4 inch outputs and is powered by either a 9 volt power supply or battery.  It isn't rackable as it is a stomp box.


The make up of the Digitech X-Series Main Squeeze is quite easy to follow and users shouldn't have much trouble at all figuring out how to use this pedal.  It has parameters for level, attack, EQ (tone), and sustain.  These are pretty basic parameters as far as compression pedals go, so those who have experience with guitar compression pedals should be used to this pedal before even using it.  Even if you don't have experience with compressors of any kind, the make up of this pedal is easy enough to follow that you don't need a manual and will be able to figure it out on your own.


The sound of the Digitech X-Series Main Squeeze is sub par in my opinion.  While it will indeed get the job done as far as compressing your signal, to me it sounds too digital and colors your sound a little bit too much.  Like a compressors, it will definitely add some sustain to your sound, but as far as playing rhythm parts, for me it really squeezes your sound too much and doesn't give it much room to breath, even if you don't have the compression level up too high.  This pedal will work if you are just trying to mess around with compression, but I definitely wouldn't use this for recording and I would also look elsewhere for live shows as I don't think that the sound of this pedal is up to par.


While the Digitech X-Series Main Squeeze provides a cheap option for guitar players looking for a compression pedal, to me you can spend just a small amount of more money and get a much better pedal.  If you want a good compression pedal, take a look at the Boss CS-3 or the MXR Dynacomp as they are similar in price and are much better sounding compressors in my opinion.
