The very idea for the Lamplighter Optical Compressor is rooted in legendary tone and studio lore. The Lamplighter is the result of countless hours of tweaking, listening, and tweaking again. The idea is pretty simpleÂ—provide compression that doesnÂ’t Â“stepÂ” on your tone like other compressors do, make it as transparent as possible, with a low noise floor, while allowing the effect to be present, and provide options that musicians the world over have asked for. This is Greer AmpsÂ’ answer to the question of wide-ranging, useable compression for all musicians. After listening to studio compressors for years, weÂ’ve often wondered why we couldnÂ’t find something to get the smooth and subtle compression that we hear in the studio, on a pedal board. Now we know that it can be done. Your new favorite compressor is here, and youÂ’re going to love it.
The controls on the Lamplighter provide the user the ability to have subtle or intense compression. The use of both the Compression and Comp Mix controls allow for a multitude of Â“sweet spotsÂ” with different settings. Add the release toggle into the mix, and you suddenly have a compressor with the flexibility of a contortionist. The Treble control can push the tonal range into shimmery, squashed out heaven. Overall, this compressor is hard to beat, and you will not want to turn it off.
