The Compresor Mental is our take on a famous OTA compresor. We lowered the threshold to squish the signal even more, we added a compression (ratio) control and a time constant (attack release) knob. Finally, we added a bias control which lets you have a glitchy gate effect at higher compression settings. Experiment with the Compresor Mental to get ultra percussive sounds, typical OTA compression, glitchy disintegration, gated compression (to get rid of the noise floor in a cool way), and more...
If you want a transparent compressor: Keep looking.
If you want to use a compresor as an effect, and a radical one for that matter, then look no further and let this pedal compress all of your thoughts, to keep them under control.
(be ware that the picture is of a prototype, the actual regular price pedal comes in the regular eQ.circuitos look: raw metal with stamps...unless you are ordering on black friday sale with custom colors weekend, in that case you are getting something similar to the picture but in the color of your choice and with our usual vintage knobs).
This pedal has enough low end to handle guitar and bass just as well!
