Whirlwind FXOCBP Optical Bass Compressor Pedal

With their wide dynamic ranges, basses often need a touch of compression to sound their best. Choose between lighter compression or heavier limiting modes.

The Whirlwind FXOCBP Optical Bass Compressor Pedal is both a compressor as well as a limiter, depending upon how it is switched. With three pre-programmable attack speeds, you can switch from a super fast, thumping grab, to a long and lush compressed sustain with plenty of adjustment in-between. The OC BASS comes with adjustable input and outputs, so you can easily tailor the exact amount of punch and sustain desired. Set the attack switch to MED in the LIMITER mode, and turn your thumb into a registered weapon of funk. Your bass will thank you. An 18V power adapter is included.

This is one of the best compressors I've used. My playing never sounded better. I have this in the front of my effects chain and it is the one pedal that is ALWAYS there. No need to spend the extra money for other fancy pedals that are not half as good as this.
Very professional sound quality with easy to use controls. It responds well and fast to my playing.
This pedal has a compressor and limiter in one box. The sound is very clean and clear on both modes.
Ease of Use
As soon as you plug it in for the first time you can get a great sound from this pedal. It does what it is supposed to and it does it with very easy controls.
The housing of this pedal is like a tank. You can actually use it to play your music then defend yourself with it if your playing is really bad....
This pedal is worth twice the asking price. It is the one pedal you cannot do without.
Manufacturer Support
Never had to contact manufacturer.
