The Barber Tone Press: Tone and Sustain with “Plug and Play” Performance.

Bringing together the very best of classic guitar compression and time-honored recording techniques, the Barber Tone Press is a revolutionary performance compression pedal that has no rival...

A Tonal Breakthrough: How We Did It
In research and development, Barber studied the problems associated with classic guitar compressors and their recent clones and found that, while the clone-makers build pedals with improved components (cleaner switching, in particular) and matched transistors, a few of the major drawbacks of those “vintage” designs still exist. The most glaring drawback of popular classic compressors is that they reverse the guitar's phase and cause a “pop” (squashed attack anyone?) at the beginning of every note. Although we now see some compression units that have “attack controls,” they leave a bit to be desired as they require seemingly endless trial and error tweaking - and no solution.

Our solution? Parallel compression, a Barber innovation that blows away having to deal with attack, ratio and release knobs of other so-called "studio compressors." Barber developed a one-of-a-kind and quite proprietary continuous “blend control” circuit and combined it with a discrete “Class A” FET mixer circuit to allow you to continuously blend the natural signal of your carefully selected guitar with a “phase-corrected” classic compression circuit. The result? What guitar players have always wanted - unaltered attack and supernatural sustain and resonance, no studio engineering degree required.
