The Vertex NYLE Compressor packs a high-end, studio-grade channel strip into a pedal. It marries two circuits: a 76-style FET compressor and a vintage-sounding, British-style preamp. With this pedal, you can achieve Nile Rogers-esque funk tones with ease. Or flip the Treble switch to nail Prince’s clean sound. You can also crank the Gain knob for some true-to-the-album “Black Dog” riffage. Whether you want compression, EQ shaping, or level control, the NYLE’s wide palette of controls delivers the goods.
