Bass guitars possess a huge dynamic range and produce powerful low frequencies. Designed for and by bassists, this compact compressor/sustainer features fully adjustable controls that can subtly transform the dynamic qualities of a bass guitar or take them to the extreme. From transparently leveling out notes so they sit in a track to creating an intensely squashed sound, the Bass Preacher helps spread the gospel of great bass tone!

  • Compact compressor designed especially for bass guitar
  • Input sensitivity ranges from -10 dBu to +2 dBu making it a perfect fit for both passive and active basses of varying output levels
  • Maximum gain reduction of 21 dB, with enough make-up gain to return your signal to full volume at maximum sustain (compression)
  • Attack toggle switch changes the timing of the onset of compression and provides three selectable settings: Fast, Medium and Slow
  • True bypass for maximum signal path integrity when in bypass mode
  • Tough, compact die-cast package
  • 9-Volt battery included

Nice compressor, but a tad noisy


I love the effect, but it has some hum from the gain. There is an internal gain knob on this pedal, and after some adjustments I was able to minimize the hum, which is not audible while playing. It has a decent range of compression, and is very simple to use. The 3 position toggle switch is great for changing the effect between songs.
