Servus! Pedals Photophobia - Optical Compressor


Servus! Pedals

The Servus! Pedals Photophobia is an optical compressor that doesn't color the original guitar tone. Thanks to the high-quality components the Photophobia offers a transparent compression without adding any noise to the signal.

The attack and release values are preconfigured in order to obtain a smooth and natural compression. With only two knobs it's very easy to find your favourite setup.

The Photophobia works great with overdrives and distortions, adding sustain to the guitar tone. It works also very well for clean sounds and rhythm guitars.

Relay True Bypass: The Relay True Bypass system uses a clickless switch, a PIC microcontroller and a high-quality Panasonic relay. Due to its components, this system has a much higher durability than the 3PDT switches usually used for true bypass.
