Keeley GC-2

Truly one of HornFX’s favorite pedals! The GC-2 give you a noiseless, crystal clear compression that can be dialed in as subtlety or intensely as you could want. Its functions beautifully as a clean boost as well. We know of no better simple option for managing your sound and your signal.

HornFX Review

Interface:  4/5
The three knobs on this compressor are no-nonsense and very simple to understand. The gain knob can get a little out of hand if you turn it way up. The use of the variable light as the threshold indicator to show when compression is being used or is bypassed is a useful touch.

Noise: 4.5/5
Crystal clear. You will have a slight bit of noise when the gain knob goes way up.

Complexity: Simple

Live application: 5/5
This is the perfect solution for managing your sound after adding a ton of signal to it with various other pedals.
