Black Finger Tube Compressor
The Black Finger is the only Optoisolator Photocell, Dual Vacuum Tube Compressor Pedal on the market!
SO WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
It means that the Black Finger uses the same professional-grade techniques that the most revered, vintage and mega-thousand dollar, high-end studio compressors use, except that itís in the form of an affordable, compact foot pedal!
Two 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 ďtubeĒ hyped products on the market, which use 9 to 50 volts, the Black Fingerís 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 doesnít cost thousands of dollars. The Black Finger breathes life and warmth into any musical instrument or recording and makes it sound magical. Itís further proof the Electro-Harmonix is changing the way players think about their pedals.
Note that this pedal does not EFFECT your sound as much as most pedal compressors. If you are looking for that cool dynacomp/ross sound, you may be better off with our Comprossors instead.
Uses a special 12AC-1000mA adaptor, included for USA power or option for UK or Euro power.
