BASICS

When ‍you ‍think ‍any ‍kind ‍of ‍compression ‍sucks, ‍turn ‍down ‍MR. ‍NUTCRACKER’S ‍COMP ‍control ‍to ‍get ‍it ‍out ‍of ‍the ‍way ‍and ‍use ‍this ‍pedal ‍as ‍a ‍dynamic ‍booster, ‍enhancer, ‍overdrive(r)! ‍Most ‍likely, ‍though, ‍you ‍will ‍soon ‍recognise ‍yourself ‍turning ‍that ‍control ‍up ‍again ‍as ‍you ‍suddenly ‍started ‍to ‍like ‍compression. ‍Wow, ‍what ‍happened ‍there?
‍MR. ‍NUTCRACKER ‍takes ‍guitar ‍& ‍bass ‍compression ‍to ‍a ‍whole ‍new ‍level! ‍And ‍as ‍you’re ‍annoyed, ‍since ‍long ‍ago, ‍with ‍the ‍noise ‍levels ‍related ‍to ‍compressors ‍you ‍simply ‍skipped ‍them ‍all!? ‍Well, ‍times ‍have ‍changed—this ‍is ‍a ‍NUTCRACKER!

COMPATIBILITY

Even though MR. NUTCRACKER sounds great by itself, for example if you need to tune your levels or/and dynamics—it also works very well to tailor the overdrive in amps designed to accept higher input signals, like the legendary Marshall 2203/2204/JCM800 and its kinsfolk…

MR. NUTCRACKER also matches perfect with any other Himmelstrutz pedal—stacked in whatever order you prefer. Isn’t this noisy? No, this is surprisingly quiet to be possible!
