FT: FEA Opto-FET Compressor Mint

Discussion in 'For Sale: Effects and Pedals' started by MuthaFunk, Jul 18, 2012.


  1. I'm looking to trade for an Empress compressor. I've been told these are currently not in stock and FEA has a rather large waiting list to get one. Here's your chance to get a like new one right away. This is the most current model with dip switches inside. The build quality is world class as is the sound but I've been really craving the Empress ever since I let mine go a year ago. I'll probably be looking to buy another one of these in a year. LOL!

    Here's a great link on TB about this pedal:

    This youtube link gives a good idea of how smooth the compression is on this. It's really quiet and total rack mount quality in a pedal. Oddly enough I also have an extra VT Bass Ver.1 like used in this clip that I don't need. I could throw it in for some extra cash.

    It is mine!
     
  7. True story.

    I guess I'm not totally surprised it sold in less than a day given the quality of the unit but I thought I'd end up waiting a few days for someone with a used Empress compressor to find it. Thanks moonbass!!
