Rocksonics now distributing the V-COMP Tube Compressor

Rocksonics has announced that they are now distributing the V-COMP Tube Compressor. It is a studio valve/opto compressor pedal packaged in a compact floor pedal chassis. The compressor circuitry utilizes an ALL TUBE, Class A audio path using a Vactrol as the gain control element. The tube heater and plate voltage are both regulated DC power for low hum and noise. Attack and decay characteristics have been optimized for guitar but also work very well with bass and vocals.

This "pedal" was designed with selectable signal levels allowing interface directly to instruments, to amplifier effect loops, between a preamp and power amp, or to the recording system, mixing console, etc. This feature allows the V-COMP to be used on stage or in the studio in multiple applications.

This compressor is NOT a "distortion pedal" but, like most classic valve/opto compressors, HAS a sound and it is BRILLIANT! It is designed to add life to the audio with subtle tube coloration and the smooth compression characteristics of legendary opto compressors.

With the threshold control kept to a minimum (no compression) the unit can be also be used as a tube booster to add real tube character to digital and solid state systems.

Specifications:

Input: 1/4" mono phone jack (impedance 1M)
Control: Output Level, threshold level, LINE-INST switch, ON-OFF footswitch (hardwire bypass)
Valve: 1-12AU7 Dual Triode
Gain Control Element: Vactrol
Power Source: 9-12VAC, 750ma UL/CSA wall plug power adapter (not included in "International" version)
