BBE OptiComp - Optical Compressor



BBE Sound


Bassists and guitarists alike can benefit from a quality optical compressor pedal, but basses have a special challenge: massive signal-level spikes compared to guitars. That’s why many bassists want to tightly control signal level.

Whether you’re just looking to dial in a smoother sound or keep the front end of your amp from clipping, an optical compressor is just the thing. There’s none finer than what you’ll find in the studio-grade, solid-state OptiComp compressor pedal. In fact, it’s the same circuit found in the award-winning BBE BMAX and BMAX-T bass preamps. True to form, OptiComp features a beefy mil-spec circuit board with big, fat signal traces, 1 % metal-film resistors and high-voltage poly caps, all backed up by a robust true-hardwire bypass.
