Fantastic compression... based on the Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer circuit.

3 knobs - Attack / Bias / Level

...more from the Phoenix Custom Blog Spot

The Cream Tangerine is a smooth sounding compressor that when used correctly can give a lot more presence to your tone. Your single note lines will jump out and your chords will have more kick. You also get more sustain (though not the "endless sustain" of other compressors). This pedal adds a little gain to your sound as well, and can be used as a (mostly) clean boost for leads, or set for unity gain. The Cream Tangerine is a clone of the "Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer," and has the exact same signal path. The only changes from the original are the use of 1% metal film resistors which are less noisy than the original carbon resistors, true bypass, an attack control (subtle but very useful for humbuckers and bass) and the volume and bias controls mounted on the outside of the box (the original Orange Squeezer had an internal trim pot for volume control). This is also a great compressor for bass. The pedal can run on 9-18 volts. Higher voltage = more headroom and less low end sag.
