Pre-owned Ibanez Compressor Pedal
This all-original bright red 1981 Ibanez CP -835 Compressor II is in excellent condition and looks almost new. The enclosure shows barely any signs of use. It also comes with its original box and instruction manual, which is always a bonus for these older pedals. In addition, this CP-835 has the features that effect collectors look for, including the above the ‘z’ in its logo, the black ‘Made in Japan’ label on the baseplate and the original Maxon battery compartment cover. Ibanez continually changed its specifications at the time and this one is apparently the 3rd incarnation of the CP-835, which has the standard width box, a plain DC input jack and white level markers around the knobs.

The simpler approach used by the CP-835 makes it a great deal easier to dial in an effective, musical sustain, even though it doesn’t have quite the flexibility of control that the CP9 possesses. Personally, I prefer the back-to-basics approach, as used by the MXR Dyna Comp. Set the level and choose the amount of sustain, which at higher levels gives a lovely, lush bloom to the tone without it being too oppressive. It also gives a lovely sounding attack to picked notes. The Compressor II is one of those pedals that adds some ‘spit and polish’ effect on a signal, rather than mangling it into something else altogether.

Many users swear by compact stomp box compressors as an always-on tone enhancer to smooth out playing dynamics, to refine the sound, to boost a clean signal and to give an impression of increased sustain. Compressors work particularly well for guitar slide playing, although they are equally effective for many other styles. A compressor’s impact really only becomes apparent when it is switched off after playing through one for some time. The Ibanez CP -835 Compressor II is not one for the compulsive knob-twiddlers out there, just a simple solution to sweet sonic smoothness.
