    Up for sale is a BBE Opto Stomp. It is a great optical compressor. I would describe it as smooth, warm, and transparent. I am selling it because the compressor on my amp makes the BBE redundant. Here is TB'er bongomania's review: http://www.ovnilab.com/reviews/optostomp.shtml

    The pedal is about a year old. It is in pristine condition, but a few scratches because of the very thin finish. It comes with velcro on the bottom, and the original box and manual if desired. I am asking for $75.

    I am not interested in any trades, PM me for a quick reply. Also, I would prefer PayPal. Thanks!

    Bump for a great box at a great price!

    I've owned one of these for over a year and it goes everywhere my bass goes. The sound is clean and smooth, without the 'pumping' or 'breathing' artifacts that are typical in stompbox comps. The only time I don't use it is when I'm recording with my LA-610.

    Thanks! The action is very warm, smooth, and transparent. The sound is reminiscent of the optical compressors of the '60s. Think Paul McCartney!

    Jim C Is that what you meant to play or is this jazz?

    Does the LED give any indication of compression or just an on/off indicator?

    I'm pretty sure it's just an on/off indicator.

    I've decided not to sell the pedal so I'm closing this thread.
