I had also been reading about a dual compressor pedal with the ability to switch between two different compression settings. It looked really cool but I can’t find it now. If anyone comes across it, add a link here.
I just found the information about their new compressor. It’s so new it isn’t on their website yet. It was in an email they sent out.
Here’s the text from the email about the BC1 Bass Compressor…
"Let’s zoom in on the Attack parameter on our upcoming BC1 Bass Compressor for a minute. It actually has an VERY long attack time if you turn the knob all the way. But why?
Because we know that (some) bass players (in some scenarios) don’t like to have the attack of their sound compressed right away. With the very wide range, you can apply a quite aggressive amount of compression, but without sacrificing the initial attack of your tone.
In fact, we’d say that you don’t even need a Parallel Compression option, but just in case… We added it anyway.
We think you and your bass deserved the best from both worlds!"
Still nothing on the website and the link in the email was a dead facebook link.
I ordered the BP1 Preamp today from the Caveman USA distributor. I’m sticking with the Cali 76 compressor, but @eric.kiser he is getting the BC1 compressor today. Of course he can’t sell one until September, but anyone in the New Hampshire area can test it (along with the 75+ basses he has).
Get down there. He’s appointment only. He sent me this photo and said that he has over 70 basses and over 70 guitars in stock. Makes me a little envious, like when I see the guys that have access to all the Japanese stores. My dream. Surprisingly, I haven’t found that store in Southern California.
@booker_t so you get the big one not the compact right. Are you running that throughout your sweet amp setup? Man you have great taste.
I know for the fact that I won’t be able to tell the difference between the regular and the compact one. I was the Genzler Magellan but I already 2 of the 350 heads and they are the same I might go for the compact purely for the smaller footprint and I didn’t see the BP 1on John Fox’s website.
No, I got the BP1 compact, even though it’s still a big pedal. I usually have little patience, but I haven’t tried it. I have one more pedal that I’m waiting on (Proton envelope) and then @Reasonably_Happy (Jesse) is helping me put the board together.
