Product Description

Pigtronix Philosopher Bass Compressor brings the heralded Philosopher’s Tone compressor circuit to bassists in a small size stomp box format. The sustain control on this pedal varies the compression threshold to provide everything from subtle peak limiting to infinite clean sustain, all with incredible low end response. The Philosopher Bass Compressor also sports a compression blend knob, mixing clean tone in parallel with the optical compression. This approach is far more effective than a typical compressor’s “attack” control for preserving your natural string envelope to achieve transparent and musical results. In addition to the wide range analog compression circuit with unrivaled sustain and parallel blend, the Philosopher Bass Compressor’s GRIT switch brings in a harmonic distortion tuned especially for low frequency domination. Used with a tube or solid state amp or even straight into a mixing board, DI or DAW, the Philosopher Bass Compressor delivers a new level of control and power to bass players at an affordable price. The Philosopher Bass Compressor features true bypass switching and runs fine on standard 9-volt power but ships with an 18-volt adapter for superior headroom, clarity, overall output and use with active basses. Never before has so much bass friendly compression been squeezed into such a small package.

One of the best things that can be said about a bass compressor. I was a little skeptical, having tried out many different popular compressors... I knew very little about Pigtronix. After about 40 shows, this little guy still works like a charm, and is VERY easy to use. I've only messed around with the "grit" setting in jam sessions, but it's a neat feature as well. Highly recommend it.

if you looking for a solid bass sound, this thing will do it. my only complaint is the switch for the fuzz is not a button so you have flip it by hand. luckily the clean is really all I need.

it's a great compressor to always have it on.I use it to level my attack when slapping and using other effects.It doesn't have any noise.Also the overdrive is fat and loud.Trust me if you need a simple compressor for smooth limiting or sustain this is it.

Awesome pedal! Does everything and more for a compression effect, has a sweet clean distortion effect perfect for gritty solo blues jams.
