The Hotone Skyline KOMP is an optical compressor that provides a smooth compressed tone, while maximizing the punch of every note. Inspired by the legendary Urei LA2A photoelectric compressor, the Komp circuit has been optimized to perform outstandingly across the spectrum of different playing styles.
Just plug in and your compressed tone becomes round and smooth, while perfectly retaining the original guitar tone. The SPARK button adds high end to the compressed sound.

Why We Like Hotone Skyline Series Pedals
It would be easy to dismiss these as toys, but in fact, they’re killer little pedals (we emphasize little). Less than 3” x 1 3/4" each, they’re true bypass and they’re inexpensive. They do require external power (9V DC), but for a small pedalboard for road or club gigs, they do the job really well.
NOTE: Because tone is so subjective, we limit our printed descriptions of pedals. Descriptions here are largely edited from manufacturers’ sites. Your ears and your budget are the best guide. We recommend everything we carry and encourage you to come take ‘em for a spin.
