Keeley Bassist Compressor Limiting Amplifier

It has variable compression ratios from 1:1, all the way to 10:1, all the way to infinity:1. It also has an incredible 30db of gain and a very precise variable threshold. This compressor utilizes the ultra high end THAT Corp 4320, a chip developed by former dbx engineers that has previously only been available in rack units. We are, to the best of our knowledge, the first major pedal manufacturer to employ this amazing chip. The performance specs far surpass any available from any competing compressor. It is unbelievably transparent, low noise, and colorless. The precision of the values indicated on the controls is dead accurate, this limiting amplifier is surely much more of a scalpel then the usual stompbox hammer. We will be taking presale orders of this pedal on October 27th. Yes, there is a guitar version as well, it will be announced in a week or two, and will be available for presale the same day. They will both sell for a MAP of $199, with a dealer cost of $139.30. We will of course still make the C4 Compressor, and actually, they kind of complement each other. The C4 Comp offers “guitar voiced”, noticeable compression, whereas these compressors will add an invisible volume control device, a final leveling amplifier for your entire pedal chain.
