Guyatone BC-X Bass Compressor
It is an analogue compressor lamp at a manufacturer Guyatone
Japanese (personally I find what they are doing far better than boss's example and God knows I love what boss ^ ^)
5 knobs (one double):
- Comp: compression level
- EQ (as in the mids): setting up the frequency of low to mid high and low boost / cut the selected frequency
- Attack: Attack adjustment (brightness) must go molo otherwise it's a bit violent in the treble and it blows
- Shape: /! bizarre attention he manages the volume that one
- Volume: the same but it manages the power compression

Otherwise throughout the case inspires confidence, metal case, knobs and footswitch solid.
Note that it only works with a battery power supply so no I not see it as a disadvantage because I had the power supply with

In conclusion I would say it's not a comp rack compression settings so limited but is not what we asked it with no decision-head on the treshold ratio or the branch where you bang it sounds.


I have no manual so I will not dwell on it but I have not felt the need to find my settings.
Rest of the settings are intuitive, the compression is adjustable it goes from very light to very heavy comp that lets nothing pass.
One big positive in my opinion is the medium that EQ is a model of its kind: the frequency range is well chosen and can sculpt his sound in an instant


I have deliberately not mentioned the lamps before because I wanted to dwell on in this game.
Frankly when you turn the pedal and it connects over at first you say "bah shit she's here to light the pedalboard or what?" and then continues to play and there is defined as a change, harmonics that are let go easily, which warms the sound, for the first time in my life I understood what it was his "light" and she had to warm ^ ^ '
This is not a gadget this small lamp, with a guitar and pushed into a corner this comp turns into a monstrous machine crunch.

To return to the compression itself as much with a bass guitar that this comp works great with a beautiful beach setting and a nice color of sound.

Only downside when you push the attack or compressing it starts blowing pretty good but with a suitable setting it disappears.


I've had a year
I did not try a multitude of compressor but I have enough to make me an inkling of a good or a bad compressor is clear that is not what one might call a compressor " neutral "is typed it is true but for me this color is nice.
What I love most: the comp, the sound and light parametric mids
What I like least: the breath
