A useful new tool from those clever folks over at Boss for the bass players amongst us.
The BC-1X is a studio grade, dynamic and responsive compressor specifically made for Bass guitar, and it makes dialing in a lovely natural and full sound for any playing style easy.
The design is meant to respond accordingly to differnt dynamics and gives just the right levels of compression on the fly, making sure your signal is never squished.
Easy to use as well, the controls easily let a user dial in just the right amounts without endless tweaking. The controls are Threshold, Ratio, Release and Level, and in addition there's a helpful live indicator on the pedal to show the gain reduction.
