G-Lab BC-1 Boosting Compressor

Boosting Compressor BC-1 is a classic full analog compressor with opto component which ensures the highest sound quality. Thanks to its ultra low noise level the BC-1 works very well as a booster or booster-compressor on crunch and overdriven tones. With the BC-1 your guitar will sound better and it makes playing much easier. You will not hear typical ‘pump’ or ‘breath’ effect. Thanks to the possibility of changing the time characteristics it is possible to use the BC-1 also with the bass guitar. .

Matching the circuits to the guitar signal characteristics enables to achieve the optimal effective working of the compressor. Thanks to its MODE switch it is possible to use the BC-1 with electric or with the bass guitar. Its GAIN switch enables to match the compression to the guitar signal. The adjustment of compression level and boost is done by two pairs (A and B) of BOOST and COMP regulators which are selected by the footswitch. Two footswitches can work in four modes what enables to adjust the unit to the guitarist individual needs. The current compression level is indicated by DUMP indicator. .

Clickless TRUE BYPASS based on optical components has no influence on the guitar tone. Used discrete components ensure full transparency of the tone. An additional function is the guitar signal BUFFER. More you will find here. In the effects chain it is recommended to use the BC-1 right after the wah-wah effect. .

Boosting Compressor enables to discover new overdriven tones. It is highly useful for tube amps with distorted power amp. The BC-1 connected with such type of amplifier gives clean, crunch and overdriven tones with or without compression..

Thanks to combination of compression and distortion BC-1 widen the tone palette of multi-channel amps and distortion type effects. Your guitar will sound totally different with the BC-1..
