The Seymour Duncan Vise Grip is a studio-grade compressor designed for guitarists who want to take control of the dynamics of their sound, from a subtle smoothing-out of peaks and valleys to the most squished and pinched extremes and everywhere in between.

The Blend knob lets you add as much or as little of the original signal as you like to the compressed sound, while the Mid/Full/High lets you choose the character of the blended signal. The Sustain knob determines how long your notes will ring out and the Attack control regulates how quickly the compressor reacts to your initial pick attack. Higher settings give you a late attack that lets your picking dynamics come through before the compression kicks in. And the Volume control does more than just let you match the output with your bypassed sound: you can also use it as a boost while taking advantage of the Blend and Mid/Full/High controls.
 
You can use the Vise Grip for everything from a simple dynamics adjustment - like a subtle or extreme increase in sustain, or a little extra clarity, body and volume for a clean solo - to more intense effects like a classic ‘squished funk’ rhythm scratch or a lo-fi, treble-heavy edge which is perfect for garage-band vibe. Then you can blend in just the right amount of the uncompressed signal and let the Mid/Full/High switch restore sparkle to the high end, fatten up the uncompressed signal for increased harmonic overtones, or simply make sure your effected sound remains consistent with your bypassed guitar tone. 
 
Neither too much nor too little, this will allow your chords to ring and sustain naturally, just as Seymour intended. Adjust the Blend to taste to further increase transients and keep it going without ever sounding forced or artificial.
 
This will give you more than enough time to go away and have a bite: you'll certainly still be hearing this one. Great for chords and better for single notes, this flub-free, musical and silent sustain can seemingly go on forever..
 
Rev up your bridge single coil and get that picking hand working. Give your rhythmic chops and single-note melody lines a rounded edge that sounds great on the three treble strings and adds muscle to those disco flavored stops.
 
Especially effective when using humbuckers, try this to wildly change your tone from warm and full to scratchy and toppy at the press of a footswitch. Want to recreate that garage band feel? If you have a use for a skinny humbucker tone, try this little trick for starters.
 
You don't want any additional drive with a clean boost, and this setting gives you just that. Adjust the Volume knob to the output of your amp and balance the Blend to the tone of your guitar: your clean solos need never be buried again.
