I've read a few good reports that say the Electro Harmonix Hum Debugger actually eliminates noise - "Absolutely eliminates hum from any audio source. Not a noise gate and not a suppressor. Dead silence in your signal chain courtesy of a little EH magic" - some people are saying it actually works.

I have never tried a Ross compressor, but they are still very popular and there are a lot of clones available from boutique builders if you just want a replacement that is not so rare and collectible. I do have two Ross distortion pedals - a black one and the older brown model - very nice!

I have an Electro Harmonix Black Finger compressor (the newer tube model). I have no idea how it compares to a Ross, but I like it.
