That's true. Parallel compression goes a long way in a pedal, and Barber made a great one. For *that* sound I still pull out the TonePress, but in general I prefer the sound of the BJF Pale Green Compressor (or Barefoot Ever Green -- nearly the same thing). It's about the feel as much as it's about the sound, and in both regards it's just stellar. I can't get that from anything else.
