The Soul Preacher comes from Electro-Harmonix’s Nano series and uses the same rugged, compact housing as the other entries in the line. The size of it makes it easy to transport, while the construction quality means it will stand up to the demands of a gigging musician.

The volume and sustain controls are similar to what you’ll find on other compression pedals but it also gives you a 3-way toggle for the attack speed.

If we're being honest...

It’s not the best option if you want a super-tight or squeezed compression sound, but it will give you a resonant, even tone with a great clarity of articulation.

As with other compression pedals, the main complaint against this model is the amount of signal noise at higher gain levels. The sound quality of the effect is also more variable depending on what other equipment you have.

Generally speaking...

It has a better sound paired with tube amps than solid state models, and you may find you need to experiment with where you connect it in relation to your other effects to get the tone you’re looking for.

Specifications:

  • Power: 9V battery or power cable
  • Weight: 10.4 ounces
  • Dimensions: 2.8”H X 3.5”W X 5.8”D
