The Pulp 'N' Peel V4 appeared on our recommended list for Guitar Compressor Pedals from August 2018 until February 2021 when it was out-ranked by other compressors.
The 4th iteration of the JHS Pulp 'N' Peel compressor pedal has extra features and connectivity options.
Its standout feature is its built-in dirt circuit with dirt knob that lets you adjust its intensity. It lets you add the classic break-up / gritty tone that are conjured by driving vintage compressors hard.
It also has a balanced XLR output that allows for more flexible routing be it on stage or in the studio.
In addition to its Volume and Compression knobs, this pedal sports a dedicated EQ knob for tone shaping and a Blend knob for controlling how much of your dry signal gets through.
It also lets you switch between true and buffered bypass, and it comes with a ground-lift switch to stop unwanted ground loop noise.
