I use fender jazz for live and recording & wanted a compressor pedal for a long time but the one I liked was too costly or not available in India. I tried out & now own the PHOTOPRESS- Optical Compressor in their lab & tone was very smooth, clean & transparent although it does seem to add a nice “thickness” to the mids. The low end sounds big and full. Thank you for the pedal and making it available reasonably for us. Waiting for next bass pedal! Cheers!
