POST # 679 EBAY PRICE GUIDE : 1970's Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer Compressor
Here's the famous Dan Armstrong pedal from the 70's.
Scroll down to see how much it sold for. Here's the blurb from the seller.
Selling off my collection of vintage guitar effects pedals (so check all my auctions). Up for auction is an original 1970's Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer, that can either be plugged into your amp or guitar (currently set for amp as I'm a Strat guy). To this day, this is perhaps the most transparent of all compressors, most famously used by Skunk Baxter in "My Old School" by Steely Dan. Here's what my friend Analog Mike has to say about this:
"The Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer (OS) is legendary for its smooth compression and "squashing" tone as used on many Steely Dan (My Old School by Jeff Baxter etc), Doobie Brothers, Dire Straits (Sultans Of Swing), and other classic albums. Jay Graydon emailed me and told me that he played the solo in PEG by Steely Dan with the orange squeezer. Jay also used it on countless songs heard on the radio and uses it for recording all the time."
These have been reissued a couple times, but none can match the originals. You don't see these everyday so check back often. Works great, one replaced screw on the back, other than that its all original.
Feel free to ask questions, and feel confident on my 100% Positive Feedback on high end guitars and amps. This is a no reserve auction open to worldwide Positive Feedback bidders. Thanks and happy bidding!
