Analog Man Juicer compressors, based on the Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer.
Features
In 2021 we are now making a MINI JUICER!! Mini case, no battery, no options, same circuit and parts.
We also use the MXR size case if you need top jacks (power jack on either side), battery room, or want the high cut switch. On the left is the old style, middle is MXR size, right side is mini :




New REV5 version in 2016, less noise, same great tone!!!

More info about this pedal is on our COMPRESSOR PAGE

  1. 100% original (not WD reissue) Dan Armstrong O.S. circuit and sound.
  2. Power jack now standard, no more noise with cheap power supplies.
  3. True Bypass with 3PDT switch
  4. Standard bright LED
  5. NOS Fairchild 2N5457 transistors and germanium diode, and JRC4558 chip
  6. Expensive high quality Matsushita/Panasonic capacitors and tantalum caps as on the originals.
  7. Awesome as a stacking pedal into OD or Distortion pedals.
  8. RE'AN UK jacks for best noise isolation and operation.
  9. Durable Orange Powder-Coated finish with Orange peel texture in 2003!
  10. original size 2.5" x 4.75" x 1.5", or MXR size 2.25" x 4.25" x 1.25", not including jacks, switch, etc

  12. One knob, external volume knob (original orange squeezer had a volume trim pot inside)
  13. About 8 dB of gain available at factory BIAS setting.
  14. The Bias trim pot is inside, as it does not need adjustment once it is set right.
  15. Optional HIGH CUT toggle for normal, dark, or very dark. Great on bass but usually too dark for normal guitar tones.
  16. optional ON/OFF volume pot for larger version, to disconnect battery without having to unplug the input jack. Only available with side jacks.

Samples

Here is a comparison of a Skynyrd lick on the Strat by Roger Filgate:
Juicer vs Comprossor.

Here are two more comparison clips of the Juicer and Comprossor. Bill Hullett, one of the great Tele players in Nashville, recorded this through a tweed deluxe.
Juicer vs Comprossor. Thanks, Bill!!!

billyjuice.mp3 Here are Some funky JUICER sounds on a strat (Roger Filgate).

Here are some samples from Guestroom Project .
This one is Time Part 1 a clean guitar with juicer. There are more samples of songs with our Juicer and TS9/808 mods on their website, like Traffic (uses our brown mods and juicer on twin leads), Fix uses these also, and Time Part II at about 3:50 has a good lead sound with these 2 pedals.

Here is a clip by Rogers Stevens of Blind Melon from their 2007 album. He is playing his Nash Strat with Rio Grande pickups through our Mini Bicomp into a Blockhead amp. He did one take with each side of the pedal for a cool sound of both of our comps together! He said it was convenient and took only about five minutes!
Bicomp Double Solo
Thanks Rogers!

Here is a youtube video of Brad Rice from Keith Urban's band playing with Tift Merritt live from Austin, TX. He's playing our JUICER pedal for some tasty slide work and a nice solo towards the end, if you are not too distracted by Tift to notice.

Here is another clip from Doug Doppler which will be on his GET KILLER TONE dvd series.
The Tele and '59 Bassman reissue with the JUICER : 70's. Doug says, Again, we're on the bridge position of the tele, but the amp and the compressor make this a really useful sound in the studio. Think John Lennon and Mott the Hoople.

Comprossor vs Juicer, and Mark Knopfler tone

This is an excellent video about getting the Sultans of Swing tone and he shows both sides of the mini bicomp with some excellent playing and explanation.

Juicer on Bass

Tony Levin and many bass players use the juicer as their secret weapon. Here is a video showing the normal Juicer sound on bass plus our high cut option which can be useful for some music.The high cut is not needed for guitar, usually too dark for normal tones.

5 of 5 Best Bass Comp May 12, 2022
Reviewer: Samuel from Pittsfield, MA  
When I replaced my Dyna Comp with my Juicer, I thought, surely nothing could squeeze, push the front end of my bass amp, and sound good without being noisy.
I was wrong.
The Juicer is the perfect blend of compression (I keep my trimpot just slightly to the right of the stock setting), boost (I usually go full bore into the front of my Hartke LX5500), and silence.
There is little-to-no noise difference between on-and-off.
This is not a terribly transparent compressor... you can feel the squeeze if you want to. And I do. Especially for consistency live on stage with bass.  But it loses nothing in tone, and adds nothing in noise. Just gain and compression.
Sick of noisy vice grips and super transparent "barely there" compressors?
Get yourself a Juicer!!!!
A perfect compressor for a gigging bassist.

5 of 5 My basses just got “Juiced” March 16, 2022
Reviewer: Lewis Orenstein from Montreal Quebec  
Finally this is it. Received my Juicer a few days back & had time to run it through my selection of vintage modern PBasses & Jazz Bass. So this like set it & forget it,  tried a bit less juice & a bit more juice with easy trim pot adjustment. Factory spec, is where it’s at. Beautifully constructed pedal in & out. Thanks for this fabulous pedal, Mike!  When life throws your tone lemons, an oranger “Juicer” gonna fix that

5 of 5 Perfection! September 3, 2018
Reviewer: Mr. Phil from South Carolina, United States  
The best thing I could say about any effects pedal is....  when you plug it in to your board, and step on the switch.... it gives you exactly the sound you expected - the sound you heard in your head when you ordered it. The Juicer does that. It gives you that beautiful Orange Squeezer tone. If that's what you're looking for, this pedal is nothing short of perfection.

5 of 5 Juicer feedback November 24, 2013
Reviewer: Pete from UK  
I received my Analog.man Juicer pedal today which is one week after the order was placed. That might not seem dramatic except I'm
in England (U.K.) That was fast service in both dealing with my order and the good old USPS guys.

As for the Juicer... Well what can I say..Quality construction, solid and I'd say pretty bomb-proof. The effect itself is as I
remember my old 1970's Dan Armstrong Orange Squeeze (which I regret getting rid of).

Difference is the true bypass (not on the original DA) and the ease of use. The Armstrong couldn't be used on my Strat without adapting cables etc.  
With 'Live' playing I could only use it on the Tele or Les Paul.

Thanks for reintroducing this wonderful effect and making such a great job using NOS components and overcoming the limitations of the original unit that Dan
Armstrong introduced to the world of guitar.
