Washburn A-C5 Compressor
The Knob: Level = Output Level

The Knob: Sens = Sensitivity = amount of compression applied.

Feeds with a 9 volt battery or 9V DC Adapter (Center negatives): EU strandard (like the Boss pedals).
It's a vintage pedal, analog: Made in USA.
It is a Stompbox (see photo).

Nothing is easier!


Configuration unlike other brands is very simple, since there are no nya rgler knob to the attack, nor rgler knob to the threshold.
Personally, that's what attracted me. Given the style I play (Rock in all its forms) with a little jazz original, I needed a compressor that allows me to apply a compression level for each song without worrying about the attack or threshold (threshold). Why? The track from Pulp Fiction. I wanted a natural analog compression for leads (kk so solos).
turning to the lowest level of the knob SENS (Compression), and the volume a little more than half can be seen that the pedal is used to boost while adding warmth every note. As you increase the MEANING, the higher the scores increase and sustain the volume gnral become identical.


I use it to beginners before the overdrive channel.
I compared it to the Boss CS-3 and a Digitech compressor, this one is much more natural, though it generates a little noise if it is powered with a battery or the suffering of your guitar pickups produce breath! It gnral all compressors and especially the one that adds warmth to the signal, so if the wind is in the signal as it considers the signal as well and therefore I hate him .... not! And the problem is with rgl gate before the compressor! Gender or Boss NS-2 ISP Decimator.
I use it with an electron-acoustic and electric. Sy it fits perfectly! In any case, a guitarist still knows that I use a compressor when he hears me!

Warning: Do not put it into effect loop if you use lots of gain on the amp or preamp, it is not love!
The only thing I do not like is that nya no indication of the exact amount of the pedal! I still do not know if it consumes 30 mA or more. short! Nickel was walking with my adapter but I'm asking him to find the adapter adequate share!


I use it only for 1 month, but I tried everything with! Rpt, recording Etc. ..
I like the efficiency of compression and the natural sound (goodbye numrique crap), I like the simplicity works!
what I like least is that there N is no manual on the net! Anyway, this thing is worth hundreds of euros in hand!
I bought just under 100 euros, so I am a winner!
With exprience, if not the famous Compressor Maxon, so I keep my A-C5, if I lose, I do not think I found another, I think there are two people the world have lol
