Using a combination of hand-selected N.O.S. (new old-stock) components and an ultra-quiet modern signal-path, the Hartman Compressor recreates the tight, transparent squeeze and legendary soft-clipping of one of the first (and smallest) guitar compressors. The Hartman Compressor improves upon the design of the original upon which it is based with External Ratio and Gain controls, LED, external 9VDC jack, and heavy-duty True-Bypass switching.
External Ratio control provides instant access to any level of compression. And with additional gain to spare, the Hartman Compressor is equally comfortable running country-clean, as a lead boost, or being pushed past breakup into smooth overdrive. Fast attack and transparent release ensure that even high ratios of compression are free of unwanted transients and pumping.
Hand-assembled to order, the Hartman Compressor features the same genuine N.O.S. parts, plated-thru-hole printed circuit board (PCB) construction and quality workmanship as Hartman's fuzz. All pedals are meticulously grounded and shielded in rugged powder-coated metal enclosures for ultra-quiet operation.
Pedal ships with new 9V battery and carries a 1-year Limited Warranty.
Lead time two ship is approximately two weeks.
