Anyone at NAMM find out about this bad boy? I foresee BCP-1s in the classifieds in 5, 4, 3...
OH hell yes. I will definitely buy one of those.
Awesome. Hopefully there's more info and a release date soon.
I was just about to pick up another standard comp jr but will def hold out for this.
There was a posting from somebody saying March.
Anyone know if this will still have the ability to use 18V supply for added headroom?
I literally can’t find anything on this pedal. Not on their website. Barely on their Instagram.
Yeah, I’ve been trying to find out more as well! I heard about it from a local music shop owner who was at NAMM and saw it there, but apart from that Instagram post I haven’t heard anything more - hence asking the question!
I just shot them an email. I will report back when/if I hear anything from them. I asked them when it would be available, 18v, and price.
Defs watching this.
Found this one as well but
I can’t inagine that it would be a problem - the regular comp jr is said to work fine up to 24v (just like it’s larger companion) so I imagine the bass one will also. The big question will be if it operates with a regular polarity plug or not!
Just received my reply back from Diamond on this pedal:
"Hi, thanks for emailing. The Bass Comp Jr should start shipping in April. It will run from 9V (battery or standard 9V negative tip power supply) but it is possible to power it from 18V (negative tip) but an 18V supply isn’t included."
Straight from the horses mouth. I believe this might be an instant purchase for me. Top jacks, smaller enclosure, same great flavor!
Awesome, thanks for checking in with them @willsellout!
My next pedal purchase. Now accepting a pre-order on my current BCP-1
Are we sure that it is the exact same circuit?
Wonder what the cost will be.
Oops...just bought a used original from the classifieds last week...
Why slag the og? It's not that big. I'm not messing with a good thing to try foraging for real estate on a pedalboard.
My understanding is that the regular comp jr is the same circuit as its big brother, just using surface-mount components. By all accounts it sounds identical. I would guess that they’ve taken the same approach here. I’m interested in the price also.
Hey, no slagging going on here, but I rock a PT nano - I could always use a little extra free space! With the top jacks, this will actually take up MUCH less space than the original. This will basically mean one extra pedal can go on the board for me.
I don't think anyone has said anything bad about the original. But it is much larger with side jacks. I never understood why a pedal with so few controls needed to be so large and it was one of the reasons why I kept the FEA over the Diamond in my shootout. But with a smaller enclosure....man this pedal will most likely kick the FEA off my board.
The size is mostly because it’s made with bigger components - eg bigger ‘through-hole’ resistors & caps like you might have used in high school electronics class. There are gut shot photos around on TB somewhere which show that the case is actually quite full.
Most pedals nowadays are made using much smaller surface-mount components, which is part of why quite complex effects are able to be put into increasingly smaller enclosures.
