5 from 5 A Fantastic Kit!

I see there are not many reviews on this product, so I though Id share my impressions.

First of all, all the parts came in neat zip-lock bags sorted by type, and resistors even had hand-written values on them! That was a particularly nice addition, and saved some time with google searching resistor value chart.

Second, the PCB was produced in a high quality, and was easy to solder. Maybe I just have a decent soldering iron, and maybe it was because I used solder wire with flux already in it, but it was a pretty pleasant 4-hour solder I had.

Third, I did not encounter any problems with the build, since the manuals provided were clear, and I do not really have anything negative to say. It was just as I expected, and a great overall experience...

... of course, if we exclude the incompetency of DHL shipping... thanks to that it took 9 days (not 5-7 as promised) to deliver. Though, that is no fault of Musikding. At least in my opinion.

P.S. Also the compressor works great with bass, and does not do much, but exactly what I need it to do - increases a bit of highs in the tone (for those sweet Tool riffs and awesome harmonies), cuts a bit of negative hiss, and adds some sustain to the note, while also cutting the extensive bass, when jamming some stoner music on E strings high frets.

Have a nice build!

5 from 5 Compressor

Very transparent sound, with a lot of gain. With the same pcb you can leave some component and build the dyna-version.

5 from 5 Easy, accurate build

This was my first attempt ever at building a stomp box. The parts were easy to fit on the PCB, and soldering went well - despite my old, grumpy soldering pen. Nothing missing in the kit, and the way components were labeled made it simple to lay out where each part should go. The compressor worked well right away.

There will be more builds in the future, without a doubt!

5 from 5 Great Kit - Top quality Boards

This is the second kit I have built from musikding - the first was the Rat. I found both kits exceellent with some nice added extras like labelled resistors and pre stripped connecting wire.
Both builds were straight forward to assemble and worked straight off with no issues.
The Compressor Ross is simple to use and gives a good range of comression as well as adding a pleasant flavour to the guitar tone - I spent a bit of time fiddling with the trim pot, not sure what the optimun setting is but its working for me.
Highly recommended.
