Compressore Bass Guitar Effects Pedal description:

The Markbass Compressore Bass Guitar Effects Pedal is a state-of-the-art tube compressor, allowing a great deal of control over the compression effect.

The Markbass Compressore is a rugged, well-built pedal and professional, studio-like controls including Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release, Gain and Volume. Threshold and Ratio determine the level in the signal at which the compressor affects the sound and by how much, while the Attack and Release controls determine how quickly the signal is compressed and for how long.

The Gain knob controls the amount of instrument level being sent to the compressor, and the Volume control sets the output volume of the pedal. The Markbass Compressore is equipped with an ECC81 valve to provide a natural, tube compression.

The Compressore has true bypass to preserve the signal when the pedal is switched off. There is a blue LED which lights up when the pedal is switched on, and a yellow LED which lights up when the signal is being compressed, becoming brighter or dimmer the more or less the signal is being compressed.

The main features of the Markbass Compressore Bass Guitar Effects Pedal include:

  • Compressor pedal for bass guitar
  • Rugged metal chassis
  • Controls for Gain, Threshold, Ratio, Attack, Release and Volume
  • On/Off footswitch
  • True bypass circuitry
  • 1/4" Input Jack
  • 1/4" Output Jack
  • Powered by the included 12V power supply

Review:
Super quiet, super smooth. Does require 600ma minimum power draw, meaning it won't run on any but the most powerful of power bricks, but what you get for the slight inconvenience of running it alongside your main power using the supplied power adapter is more than worth it. Literally way more compression on tap than anyone using it for conventional peak-squashing or sustain-boosting would need, creating new possibilities. Running gain above halfway, threshold at zero, ratio at max, attack at zero and release at max for a subby swell-like sound is almost an effect in its own right. From a recording point of view the aforementioned quiet operation is a godsend, and it even handles guitar very well from what little I've tested of it. If you want to see how it compares to other compressors go check out http//www.ovnilab.com/reviews/markbass.shtml to see the review that sold it to me in the first place, as well as reviews on pretty much every significant bass compressor on the market.
