Palmer Compressor
It is an analog pedal true bypass, classic jack connectors, power supply 9V battery or Alim classic boss.


The configuration of the pedal is extremely simple: three knobs (sustain, and attack level.
This pedal allows for 'compress' the dynamics of the output of your bass to obtain a sound with more body, presence, and a substain longer. Pedal provides a warmer sound, and this extended.

By placing the potentiometer Level 100% obtained a slight distortion, its pleasant heat - which is more than a 'simple' compressor. The PAD switch allows to adapt the electronics to the signal level of any bass, passive or active.

The manual ... I think there is one, I did not pay attention; the pedal is connected and cheek. Adjustment to the ear is very easy, because of the simplicity of the pedal.


The sound is great, very transparent but the compression is effective. There is a small addition of brilliance in the sound, but I personally like a lot. I tried 2 other compressors in more upscale (EBS and TC Electronics) and frankly, I prefer the Palmer!
I play on an amp Eden WT-300 and a box SWR Triad, but my bass is a RBX 274, so nothing special. The sound is insane!
I put a 9 instead of a 10 for the aesthetic that could be a little more sought after but hey, when you play, you do not look at his feet continuously ...

A short video is worth a thousand words, here's a quick link if you have 4-5 minutes ...


I use it since last week, I tried 2 others as mentioned above, and I do not regret my choice. I did not break my piggy bank (53 euros new!) And I am delighted with the compression I get. I would do this choice without hesitation and recommend this pedal for everyone! A bassist friend also tried it and I think he now regrets having bought another for 130 euros OCCAZ to boot!

Palmer Compressor
compressor for bass in Palmer called Deepressor, specially designed for us producers bass ^ ^

here is a link to fall directly on the product description:

all I can say is that it is of high quality European (German these are finicky, so much the better for once ^ ^), it's handmade & miss such a pedal would be. .. grossly bloody error amok ...
to keep it simple, of course ^ ^

this is good, the settings are sensitive & have Respondent + + + Briefly, the foot for perfect control
recommend in all the right pedalboard ^ ^!!


General config ultra simple answers here on the variation of the knobs, the dream which ^ ^
explanations are clear manual / net / fast efficient ... for those who need to read it, if we manage alone 5min lap top ^ ^


I use my pedalboard & Deepressor in here simply detonates ^ ^
My sound engineer was surprised at the result, he who swore by the standard references (Palmer was unknown to him)


I tried the compressor at EBS is supposed to be a reference & good ... there's references that are much better & Palmer proves with her "handmade" look great & the best quality ^ ^
