Diamond Bass Comp Jr

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Fun Size Nick, Jan 31, 2018.


  1. For demonstrative purposes, here's the Diamond Compressor and Diamond Comp Jr (both for guitar), courtesy of Best Guitar Effects:

    SMD/SMT gives enough room for a battery.


    You can say "Yeah well the big version isn't all that much bigger...", but I'd be willing to give up my current Bass Comp for one of the new ones for the ...

    SPACE SAVING TOP-MOUNT JACKS!

    Yeah, not much bigger 'til you factor in the extra space per side for jackage. As you can see from the gutshots, the older larger comps should never have been issued with side-jacks.

    Diamond is getting with the times.

    Let the side-jack paradigm die a dignified death, it's time to move on.

    Just a note that I think that you can see a battery just above the top of the big one - it looks like it normally sits underneath the pots in the space where top jacks would go. I haven’t taken my CPR-1 apart to check for myself as I use an external power supply.

    it's not just the size - center negative / 9v power is important for us one-spot devotees! I've never got around to trying the Diamond for that reason, might have to give the baby spin.

    Anyone know if it will have an LED to show under / over threshold?

    It looks like it does on the first page photo. It's got a small light. I would imagine it would be a dual purpose LED indicator.

    It will be interesting to see how they compare, they look like very different builds. I just got a full size BCP but I don't play with a large pedal board. 4 would be the max and its usually 2

    Nope, not that I've heard. Prymaxe hasn't gotten back to me yet about when they will be in stock and Diamond seems to have a terrible grasp on promotion and communication.

    I actually only have 3 pedals on my board and have too much empty space... so I love the size of the original Diamond!

    Still no news here?

    Was just going to send them an email and ask for a smaller version, then I found this on their site! I know you can't please everybody, but I wish they would have incorporated a clean blend feature...

    I'm still going to buy this one. All the demos I've heard of the big one sounded killer and I really don't care for transparency, haha.
     
  19. I just got mine, I live in Italy. I guess it's available pretty much anywhere at this point.
