What We Think

In the world of fast, grabby 500 series compressors, the Little Devil is one of our favorites. It's capable of being fairly subtle and out of the way, but that's not why you're going to get it. It was built for rock - smacking snare drums, adding hair to electric guitars, or crunch to vocals.

Stick to zener when you want to tame the devil, but when you want fast, hard knee smacking on a track, the germanium setting is exactly what you're looking for. This comp doesn't do creamy, lush compression but there are plenty of other boxes for you if that's what you're looking for - the IGS One LA, Retro Doublewide, Crane Song falcon, Roll Valvop, etc. 

Really, my only complaint is the labelling of the mix knob. It's a wet/dry control which is REALLY handy on a compressor like this, but instead of being labelled wet on one side and dry on the other, it's numbered 1 thru 6. Just try and remember that left is wet and right is dry, or set the comp to some extreme settings and you shouldn't have much trouble hearing which is which. Overall, it's an outstanding compressor and would still be a great box even when compared with rackmount gear. It stands on its own.

Manufacturer's Description from Chandler

Using all discrete circuits that combine Chandler’s best designs with the hottest designs from the past, transformer balanced everything, and the American handmade quality you expect from Chandler, the 500 Series Modules will take your lunchbox or 500 series rack system to the next level!

The Little Devil Compressor is a mixture of all that is Chandler. It combines elements of our LTD-2 and Germanium Compressor, as well as 2264 and 33609 units, into an all new compressor for a 500 format. Discrete transformer sound and handmade quality are the makeup of the Devil Comp.

If you like any of the units that inspired it, you will enjoy seeing those sounds come to the next level. Revolutionary controls like wet/dry, sidechain filter, and curve selection make the unit extremely flexible. When combined with its intense tone, this compressor gives you a powerful package in a small box!
