Any guys see this before? or even try yet?
Raising a long-dead post here... anyone know if Fodera ever released this compressor in the US (or even at all)?
I think i saw one sitting around the fodera shop in new york when i went a few months ago.
i'm sure joey or vinny would hook you up for the right price
I've only ever seen one on Japanese websites.
sounds like a quote from The Sopranos...
prolly true, guess I'm also wondering if anyone's had any experience with one... looks interesting
Needs more lensflare.
I will chime in. I went to the 2007 January NAMM show with Fodera and we had one laying around. Pretty cool little compressor. I was giving it a test drive in the booth when we were slow (Yes, Fodera had a slow time during NAMM). It was basically the proto-type, but I dug it. I am not a fan of compressors but this thing did a pretty good job. I was a little confused at the knobs and how to find that sweetspot, but once I found it I was impressed. It felt well built, good components and good sound. I thought it was a little pricey though. Like I said before, I am not a fan of compressors so I really do not have anything to compare this to. It did what it was supposed to though. I hope that helps a little bit.
do these compressors exist or what??
As far as I have been able to determine, they "exist" but only one or two have traveled outside Japan, and I haven't been motivated to order one from there.
I got one of these from Mike Pope (in this country ) & within a month had ditched my Ashley. Lots of flexibility in a much smaller/lighter package, assuming you don't need two channels of comp... Though the cost of two of these is still competitive with a good 2 channel rack unit.
Here is a link to some sound clips:
I can't say enough good things about this comp! If folks are interested in these pedals I'm sure a pm or email to Mike would go a long way.
A little bump to this thread for a great pedal.
I contacted Mike and then contacted Fodera directly. It is really light, I thought they might have forgotten to put it in the box!
It's definitely versatile and I'm still getting used to working with it.
As an aside, it didn't initially come with a power adapter and it doesn't take batteries. I contacted Fodera again and they promptly sent one. It's a good thing I didn't experiment - it takes a 24V adapter!
So, thanks to Fodera and Mike. He did mention that he has a few and that there aren't likely to be more so if you want one you should probably do it soon.
We still have several at the shop...
do you still have Fodera x-caliper?
Found this old thread while researching this compressor and pricing. Just putting this out there!
Fodera X Caliper Compressor
A few years ago I asked Fodera about these, and they said they didn't have any for sale, and they didn't know WHEN they would ever have any for sale, but that if they ever did in the future, they would consider lending me one... but that I shouldn't hold my breath.
