The Studio Bass Compressor was designed for professional bassists looking for a compressor that can provide increased sustain, accentuated picking and can even out single-note runs. It's extremely low noise and has an easy-to-use control format: The Blend knob allows you to control the amount of wet signal so you can bring natural snap back into your individual notes. The Volume knob lets you to control the output (or you can push it up and lower the Compression for a great clean boost). The Attack knob regulates how quickly the compressor reacts to your initial pick attack - cranking it up will give a late attack that allows your pick or finger dynamics to come through before the compression kicks in. The Compressor knob is the heart of the pedal and allows you to easily control the dynamic range, while the Low/Full/Mid switch determines the frequency content of the dry signal being blended in with the compressed signal, making it easy to bring back your dynamic range.

The Studio Bass Compressor is incredibly versatile: you can easily go from a subtle compression that gently smoothes things out all the way to a high compression that balances the dynamics in slap-style playing to keep each note from being too harsh or overbearing. Rock players can effortlessly summon powerful midrange punch while maintaining a fat bottom end. Bassists who prefer a more vintage sound can dial in a nice even mixture of top, mid and bottom frequencies.

It’s pretty simple.  Seymour Duncan is to pickups what Pirelli is to car tyres…  Quite frankly no-one can rival the Seymour Duncan company for their design and drive to create the very best in guitar and bass pickups.  Testaments come from top guitarist across the world including Slash, Jeff Loomis, Gus G, Joe Bonamassa, Paul Stanley, Mark Holcomb, Synyster Gates, Wes Borland… who’ve chosen Duncan pickups for decades; also, not to forget the brands such as Schecter, ESP and Ibanez who regularly load their guitar with Duncan pickups straight out of the factory.

 

Enough with the testimonials, what is it that makes Seymour Duncan’s pickups so desirable?  Seymour, working at Fender Soundhouse in London, made a name for himself as the go-to guy if you wanted to get the most out of your guitar, setting up instruments for the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and of course Jeff Beck.  Along with his wife Cathy Duncan they started the company in ‘75 effectively rewiring other people’s pickups and fixing their electronics for as little as $17.50.

 

Now based in Santa Barbara CA, Seymour Duncan remains a family run company with Seymour and Cathy still at the wind grind (sorry, couldn’t help it) today.  Steeped in its rich history Seymour Duncan has grown into a guitar pickup powerhouse having helped legendary artists like Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Van Halen and so many more achieve their signature tones.  The quality proven from pickup to pickup shows that of a company that has been perfecting its craft for over 37 years.

Although they may be well known for pickups Seymour Duncan are steadily increasing their effects pedal and gear range with new entries like the Andromeda delay which rival the Strymon Timeline and latest Powerstage power amps.  Duncan are working closely with their afore mentioned endless roster of high profile artists to create pedals that produce unique sounds you won't here anywhere else!
