    I built two of these custom comps for bass and am only keeping one of them for myself so i'm selling the other one.
    I used all high quality components in its construction, mounted in a powder-coated green sparkle enclosure.

    this FET & VCA based compressor features no loss of low end, has attack, release, ratio, threshold and volume controls, plus a usable & subtle bright switch. it can also be used as a clean boost. it can go from no compression, to just hint of it, to completely squashed and it doesn't affect your original tone (very transparent). it's basically like having a rack-mount comp in pedal form.

    BTW, these custom 'boutique' compressors are only available if you have one built for you, or you build one yourself, and IMO, they are a lot better than 90% of the compressors that are offered from manufacturers.

    Nice clean build! Nice price too!

    If I needed another compressor I'd jump on this one.

    BTW: I took a look at your custom basses - looks like fantastic work!

    Happy Holidays :)

    Wish I wasn't in such bad financial shape, I'd certainly want to buy it for review.

    Really want one of these, but it'll be mid-January before I can spend money on myself...
