Plug into classic tone! The Red Box from Whirlwind is a dead-on revival of the handwired classic from the 1970s, only this one's got a 9-volt AC adapter in and features hardwire bypass. You'll love dialing in a range of compression tones — with deliciously crisp attack on clean guitar, and totally lush sustain on your solos. This pedal has serious classic vibe. Michael Laiacona, president of Whirlwind, has been crafting amazing effects boxes for years — in fact, he was the cofounder of MXR. You've got to hear the Red Box.

Not the new $69 comp. The new one is OK for the price but this is much much better. I had the original Dyna Comp back in 1978 and this sounds just like it (it's the same circut with an AC jack and LED). As always, it depends what your set up is (guitar, pickups, amp, etc). The block logo Dyna Comp sounds OK in your bedroom but not so much in a live app. Sounds plastic to some degree. The Whirlwind Red Box sounds more lush in a live app just like I remember it 30+ years ago. Wonderful for chicken pickin and for rhythm that needs higher compression amounts.
Just got my new Whirlwind compressor. It will not clean up. It squishes the sound sort of but has a dirty sound to it. It's nothing like my old Dyna Comp. Sending it back.
