The PRS Mary Cries optical compressor pedal is intuitive and sounds incredible. Based on the storied LA-2A, Mary Cries will thicken your tone, help control signal peaks, lengthen sustain, and push your tone without losing definition or clarity. Depending on your settings, it can be used as a boost as well as a straightforward compressor.

PRS pedals were created to be high-end pieces of audio gear.

Designed by PRS Guitars in Stevensville, MD, USA. Made in the USA.

No-nonsense 2-knob control scheme

The PRS Mary Cries compressor epitomises this utilitarian philosophy, sporting but two knobs that offer a myriad of harmonic-rich compression tones: Output Gain and Compression. Crank the level while keeping the compression low for a note-articulating boost; squash your sound with maxed-out compression; dial in a moderate amount of compression for an exceptionally musical limiting effect on your rhythms — the Mary Cries Compressor offers endless tonal possibilities!
