Analog Man CompROSSor




In the year 2000, there were no Ross Clones being made. So with the help of Alfonso Hermida (Zen Drive), we reverse-engineered an old Ross, and have been making our own version, the Analog Man compROSSor pedal, from scratch ever since. Our comprossors soon became extremely popular and had a long waiting list. So others came out with "K"lones of the Ross compressor, which is easy now as all the info to build one can now be found online. But just building from a recipe will not give the same results as a cook who knows how and why to include or discard certain ingredients, and add the perfect seasonings. So we are staying a few steps ahead of the others, you will see the differences in quality and features below. We came out with the ATTACK control in 2001, which one of our COMPetitors finally added in 2005 after years of saying it was not needed. But seems he only added half of an attack control- it only goes one way from the stock setting. Ours is able to ADD or SUBTRACT from the stock setting, which we put in the middle of the range.

Way Huge had made the Saffron Squeeze pedal in the mid 1990s, which is a hot rodded Ross compressor. These are very popular and tend to sell for even more than an original Ross compressor. Different transistors and a few capacitors were used, and some capacitors are added. We are able to offer our comprossor with these specs by special request if you are familiar with the Saffron Squeeze. We can also do the Dyna/ross mod to Saffron Squeeze specs at the same price as our standard Dyna/Ross mod. But the newfangled transistors used in the Saffron Squeeze are not as steady and smooth, so we prefer not doing 100% SS specs. If you wish we can do 1/2 SS specs, just the good parts of the Saffron Squeeze and the good Ross type transistors where they work better.

We have slowly been improving our Comprossor every year, and are using some of the Saffron Squeeze improvements in all of our comprossors now. This makes them a little more open and less squashed than the other comps on the market.
