Joe Meek Floor Q Optical Compressor


Joe Meek

The floorQ is basically a Joemeek Optical Compressor in a pedal. After realizing so many guitarists and bassists were playing through their studio gear, Joemeek put its sought-after compressor in a convenient guitar pedal that's more practical for live work.

The floorQ also boasts a high-impedance, JFET-input, Class-A preamplifier with an Input Level control, so even with the compressor switched out, the compression pedal makes an excellent front-end and level matcher for all types of guitar amps.
