This versatile studio-grade compressor is a must have for any bass player looking to maximize their sound, with a range of tones from subtle to super-squashed. One of the secrets to the Studio Bass’s power is its 3-position mini-toggle and blend knob, which give you near limitless control over your tone by letting you mix uncompressed tones alongside the effected sound. Blend in your unadulterated clean signal, a mid boost that will help you cut through the busiest mixes, or a fat low-end growl. Find that sweet spot where harder picking lifts the dry signal right up above the effected signal or mix in just a hint of the original sound. Punk rock pick players, slap-happy funkateers and ferocious fingerstyle players alike will find endless sonic options, and there’s enough power that you can even use it as a clean boost for solos. It also makes a great always-on pedal to form the heart of your sound.
