A compression/distortion pedal
CompTortion logically, and uniquely, combines two effects:
compression and distortion. No other single pedal offers this kind
of control over such a range of sounds --from totally clean to light
distortion to smooth overdrive, and from zero compression to completely
voiced to complement each other, these effects are independently
adjustable so you can control the ratio that best suits your particular
taste. Characteristic of all Tech 21 products, the CompTortion
is multifunctional, exceptionally versatile, and will not depersonalize
your guitar tone. You can use either the compression or distortion
separately, or you can, of course, mix the two together. The CompTortion
can also be used for just a clean boost.
include "Comp", "Tortion", Tone and Level.
Operable with optional DC power supply, Tech 21 Model #DC2,
or 9V alkaline battery (not included).
size: 4.5" x 3.5" x 1.5" / Weight 14 oz.

sound samples were made using an ESP guitar equipped with
a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails pickup in the lead position running
into the CompTortion, and then into our TRI-O.D. pedal. Functioning
solely as a speaker simulator, the TRI-O.D. was set with
all channels off and its on-board EQ for a 2dB treble and
bass boost. The signal output then went directly into the
computer without any additional EQ or effects.
