A very nice product
kirillah, 10.04.2019
I have been sceptical about this "just another bass comp" pedal at the beginning, but when I heard it live, I had to order it. It really makes a difference to the sound of a Jazz bass, and the one thing I liked especially that there is no "hiss" sound that really annoyed me on the other compressors sometimes.

Sounds great, no noise and really resistant housing. Defenatly worth the price and much better than most compressors in the market for bass guitars.

Really impressed!
OutOfKey, 16.05.2021
A multiband compressor on your pedalboard? And it's got controls which you basically can't mess up? I'm sold. Sounds amazing and is literally indestructible.
