Why We Love This Product!

Classic, Vintage-style Compression!

Plug into classic tone! The Red Box from Whirlwind is a dead-on revival of the handwired classic from the 1970s, only this one's got a 9-volt AC adapter in and features hardwire bypass. You'll love dialing in a range of compression tones — with deliciously crisp attack on clean guitar, and totally lush sustain on your solos. This pedal has serious classic vibe. Michael Laiacona, president of Whirlwind, has been crafting amazing effects boxes for years — in fact, he was the cofounder of MXR. You've got to hear the Red Box.

Vintage-styled compression from this handwired "Red" box
The tones in the Red Box compressor are truly classic, and can be heard in almost every incredible rock recording of the '70s and '80s. The Red box is known best for its crisp percussive attack when applied to a clean guitar, plus its lush, rich sustain when soloing.

Rochester Series, designed by Michael Laiacona — cofounder of MXR
Life-long gear tinkerer Michael Laicona was the cofounder of MXR — so he certainly knows effects pedals. Here, you've got the brain behind a series of classic, near-legendary pedals, now available at a really killer value. The difference between these pedals and their classic counterparts is that the Whirlwind Rochester Series, including the Red Box, features a 9-volt AC adapter in and is 100% true bypass.
