    I have an Eden WT550 amp. I am having an issue where my built in compressor on the amp is clipping, but not the Gain, EQ, or Master on the amp. The compressor clips in different position, and when i turn the compressor off, the SET light clips, but nothing else. What do I do???
  2. I know nothing about your amp, but i do know this, most if not all built in compressors are junk!
    I have one on my head (HA3500) it is NEVER on.
    If you want compression get a stand alone unit, pedal or rack.

    If something is clipping, that means one or more levels are too high. But, how do you know it's the comp that's clipping? Is it just a light?

    link to the owners manual. there's a whole section describing how to properly gain stage the input gain, compressor, and what it means when the lights start flashing.


    if you've exactly followed the steps and still have problems, then check back in here or contact Eden product support.

    Yes, the light for the comp is the only clip light going off
  6. According to the manual, the compressor light comes on when the compressor is actually working (it is supposed to).


    From the manual:

    Setting the Compressor - If you want to use compression, engage it now by
    pushing the Enhance knob IN. The compressor light will now blink when
    your gain goes above the compression threshold. This will generally show
    up more on the lower notes, or when you employ Slapping. (A properly
    compressed Slap sound is very cool, indeed.) If you want more compression,
    increase the Input Gain a little at a time, until you achieve the amount of
    compression you desire.
