Brand new in the box, Pigtronix, 

The Philosopher's Tone Compressor/Sustainer is an ideal front end to any guitar player's pedalboard. It can also serve as the perfect companion to the Pigtronix Mothership Guitar Synthesizer or any other pitch-tracking musical equipment, delivering more accurate tracking and increased note duration. As a bonus, the Grit control mixes a layer of smooth, diode-clipping distortion into the effect.

This is the info for the new micro version of this pedal, this is the older full sized version ! 

In addition to VOLUME and SUSTAIN controls, the Philosopher’s Tone Micro features a parallel BLEND knob that allows the musician to mix their instrument’s original tone with the compressed sound effect. This technique restores natural pick-attack and allows more extreme sustain settings to remain musical. The TREBLE control provides up to 6db cut or boost at 2KHz for fine tuning the frequency response of the effect. The Philosopher’s Tone Micro features True-bypass switching and internal 18V power rails for maximum clean headroom, even when used with hot pickups and line level signals.
Practitioners of the mystical and ancient art of alchemy long sought an element called the Philosopher’s Stone, believing that, if found, it could turn lead into gold and bestow immortality upon the person who wielded it. The Philosopher’s Tone Micro represents an analog musical equivalent to this mythical substance in the world of guitar.
“People have been trying to get clean sustain from a pedal for decades, and the alchemists at Pigtronix seems to have found the secret to make it happen.” – Art Thompson, Guitar Player Magazine

Unlike the many compressor clones and their variations that have become so popular in the past 10 years, the Pigtronix Philosopher's Tone is not based on a CA3080 chip. The result is more sustain and less noise. The dynamic range, touch sensitivity, overall transparency, and outright sustain of the Philosopher's Tone is unparalleled in the crowded world of compressor pedals.
