Ashdown Dual Band Compressor Bass Effects Pedal brings a design philosophy from the forefront of bass amplification technology to a stunning new range of Bass FX pedals. Ashdown Dual Band Compressor was developed specifically for use with bass guitar. Dual Band Compressor FX pedals feature true bypass switching to ensure zero signal degradation when the effect is switched off
Ashdown FX pedals come housed in durable metal cases and feature an input level control with a trademark illuminated Ashdown VU meter to allow optimum signal matching from any instrument. Similarly, all pedals have an output level control - essential for obtaining the perfect balance between the effect and the true bypass mode.
Ashdown Dual Band Compressor pedals split the bass signal into high and low frequency bands and applies compression separately to both - fast attack and decay for the high frequency and slow attack and decay for the low frequency or fundamental waveform of the note. The amount of compression applied to each is independently variable and the balance between the high and low frequency components of the signal is also controllable as they are re-combined into a single, full range output.
** Note: This effect will only work correctly with passive bass guitars
