Overview

What does that mean? The Electro-Harmonix Black Finger Compressor Pedal uses the same professional-grade techniques that the most revered, vintage and mega-thousand dollar, high-end studio compressors use, except that it's in the form of an affordable, compact foot pedal! 2 different light sources (LED and lamp) provide distinctly different readings and offer uniquely varied compressions. One tube handles the compression stage while the other manages the gain stage. And unlike other "tube" hyped products on the market, which use 9 to 50 volts, the Black Finger's design allows a full 300 volts of swing to be utilized. This makes it a true tube compressor in every sense.

Whether used as part of an effects loop or with direct guitar, bass or voice, the Black Finger will give music the type of treatment that simply cannot be achieved via plug-in emulation or with any other analog or digital product that doesn't cost thousands of dollars.

The Black Finger effects pedal breathes life and warmth into any musical instrument or recording and makes it sound magical.

Features

  • 2 different light sources (LED and lamp) for uniquely varied compressions
  • Dual-tube compression circuits
  • Full 300 volts of swing

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Black Finger Compressor Guitar Effects Pedal:

I used to have a Boss CS-3 on my pedal board. When I started playing bass, I needed something a little stronger. I picked up the Black Finger, along with the LPB 2ube (for overdrive), and I'm floored. this compressor is studio quality all the way. I would buy this 1,000,000x over, and I wish I'd bought it first. we've been using it for vocal, drum, and bass compression when recording, and live I use it for bass and guitar to amazing effect! do yourself a favor and pick up the 1st and last compressor you'll ever need.

Comments about Electro-Harmonix Classics Black Finger Compressor Guitar Effects Pedal:

This is a nice compressor. At most settings it is very subtle (as they should be). Excellent for the money. You can pretty much find a nice overall useful setting and leave it on as a 'first in the chain' device. I am really looking to duplicate the old country twang compression sound (James Burton - Luxury Liner)and I haven't been able to dial that in yet - but Ahm workin on it. You know..it's the endless search for tone!
