The TC Electronic Hyper Gravity Compressor is another mini pedal from the TC Electronic Mini series. Despite its small size, it is very stable. The biggest advantage is clearly the compactness of the pedal, it should fit on any pedalboard. However, there are also some disadvantages. The pedal can only be operated via an external power supply, as there is no space for a battery. In addition, I would prefer to have the connection sockets at the head end of the pedal.
The Mini Compressor is also equipped with the well-known Tone Print technology. It is very easy to set up the pedal with new sounds via USB or via app. TC Electronic offers a wide range of presets. Alternatively, it is of course also possible to generate your own tone prints by using the software. I love it!
I use the pedal as a second pedal in the signal chain directly after the tuner. All modulation effects and reverb effects are placed in the loop-in path. What does the Hyper Gravity do with my sound? The question is easy to answer, it delivers sustain without end and I can simply assert myself better, especially in solos in the band. No more, but also no less. Purpose fulfilled 100% and this for a manageable price.
