    Arguably the finest compressor pedal made for bass: I'm just in the process of switching over to an entirely digital rig for touring, otherwise it would be staying.

    Like new condition aside from a single small square of clear dual-lock velcro on the back, includes original box.


    From the manufacturer:

    The Darkglass Hyper Luminal Compressor embodies a new era in hybrid compression like no other pedal in the industry: by digitally modeling the side-chain circuits in some of the most legendary compressors in history, the engineers were able to capture their essence and characteristic behavior while keeping a completely analog signal path.

    The pedal ships with 3 selectable models (more to be added):
    BUS: Modeled after the Solid State Logic Bus Compressor.
    FET: Inspired by the legendary 1176.
    SYM: The now-discontinued Super Symmetry, transcends in the digital realm.

    But that is not all! Instead of using mechanical switches (because let's face it, switches are boring), to select the compression Ratio and Mode Darkglass implemented touch-through-metal sensors.

    The sensors in the Hyper Luminal Compressor detect when and where the chassis is touched and changes parameters accordingly: this technology not only provides a very new, intimate and pleasant user experience, setting it apart from any other pedal in the market, but it does so while operating with extreme consistency and, unlike mechanical switches, it is virtually unbreakable.

    The pedal also features a gorgeous 10-LED gain reduction meter and four knobs:
    Blend: Mixes the clean and effected signals.
    Time: Sets the time constants (Attack and Release). Fine tuning and mapping can be done through the Darkglass Suite, so users can assign different constants to each model.
    Compression: Sets the amount of compression.
    Level: Sets the overall output volume of the unit.

    $220 shipped/PayPal preferred
