DryBell Announces the Module 4

Module 4 was designed to be a highly versatile take on a classic vintage compressor - Dan Armstrong's Orange Squeezer from the ‘70s.

The Module 4 can be transformed to a standard 'Full Frequency' range compressor by pushing the Orange button. Basically, the user gets two compression flavors and they are easily distinguishable. Orange brings a warm, vintage sound and feel while 'Full Frequency range' brings a more modern, brighter, clearer tone. The pedal is equipped with several colorful, and practical options, all packed into the new DryBell enclosure line.


  • Output - Controls the output volume (make-up gain) of the compressor. It also acts as a high headroom and distortion-free clean Boost, thanks to the high internal power supply voltage
  • Tone - Controls the overall high-frequency spectrum of the unit
  • Blend - Sets the mix of dry and compressed signals
  • Attack - Controls the reaction time of the compressor
  • Release - Controls the time before the unit releases or stops compression
  • Preamp - Controls the input gain of (any) instrument
  • ORANGE pushbutton - Enables/disables the ORANGE mode. When the ORANGE mode is off, Module 4 becomes a 'Full Frequency range' compressor
  • Expander - Automatically attenuates incoming background noise

Additional Features:

  • 3-color compression level meter - A visual representation of gain reduction and input signal level
  • LOW END cut – Option to keep or remove certain low-end frequencies
  • True bypass or buffered bypass options
  • Orange button also works in buffered bypass when the pedal is turned off. In that case, the buffered bypass reacts like the Orange Squeezer’s Front-end, keeping the bypass EQ very similar to the EQ when the pedal is active
  • Power on settings save option
  • Dot marks around knobs - Represent the settings of the original Orange Squeezer
  • Standard power supply 9-18V DC, 100mA minimum

DryBell Module 4 is available for $315.00. The first batch of Module 4s is available exclusively from the DryBell webshop.

Fender’s American Vintage II Series

For these new recreations, Fender focuses on the little things that make original golden-era Fenders objects of obsession.

If there’s one thing players love more than new guitars, it’s old guitars—the unique feel, the design idiosyncrasies, the quirks in finish that all came from the pre-CNC era of instrument manufacturing. These characteristics become the stuff of legend, passed on through the years via rumors and anecdotes in shops, forums, and community networks.
