The Carl Martin Classic Opto-Compressor gives guitarists an old-school-style optical compressor in a pedalboard-friendly package.One day while Carl was adding some compression to a guitar track in his studio, he thought, why hasn't anyone built a small opto-compressor for guitarists? An optical compressor performs gain reduction control via a light source into a photo sensitive cell… as the light source gets brighter, the photo sensitive cell sends a signal to reduce dynamic range, or what becomes a compressed signal.
The Carl Martin Classic Optical Compressor is the solution that Carl was looking for. The Classic Opto-Compressor is a vintage-style compressor that takes you back to the days where tonal coloring was crucial to the sound. It comes equipped with Level, Gain, Compression and Attack control knobs to fine-tune your sound with the utmost precision. The Level knob controls the overall volume of the pedal while the Gain knob controls the 'pre-glow' of the optical circuit, so the more you crank it up the thicker the sound will become. The Compression knob controls how hard or soft the compression is and the Attack control takes the signal from transparent to outright total squeeze. If you've been searching for those classic guitar sounds, look no further. The Classic Opto-Compressor is the answer. Powered by a 9v battery or 9v regulated power supply (recommended due to the nature of compressors).
