The Soul Preacher Compressor/Sustainer Pedal from Electro-Harmonix is a compact compressor and sustainer effect pedal with variable parameters allowing extreme or subtle adjustments of the dynamic qualities of your playing. Two knobs and one three-way toggle switch control the output volume, the depth of the effect, and the attack/decay characteristics of the effect.
The preamp adds distortion which can be controlled from the guitar's volume level ahead of the compressor. The amount of distortion is level dependent.
