Analog Man Mini Bi-Comp Compressor Pedal
Mini Bicomp is exactly the same features as our pre-2003 BICOMP, just takes less real estate on your pedalboard. Same size as juicer or small comp. The only difference between the mini bicomp and the current 4 knob bicomp, is the ATTACK control is on the inside of the mini. Works on battery or 9V DC adaptor. We make the cases in-house for a cost savings. They are not all perfectly machine-drilled and silk screen labelled like the BICOMP, but have a hand-made appearance. The switches are a little closer together, makes it easy to switch from one compressor to the other by pressing both switches at the same time. Use the side of your foot to easily switch just one side.
In the year 2000, there were no Ross Clones being made. So with the help of Alfonso Hermida (Zen Drive), we reverse-engineered an old Ross, and have been making our own version, the Analog Man compROSSor pedal, from scratch ever since. Our comprossors soon became extremely popular and had a long waiting list. So others came out with Klones of the Ross compressor, which is easy now as all the info to build one can now be found online. But just building from a recipe will not give the same results as a cook who knows how and why to include or discard certain ingredients, and add the perfect seasonings. So we are staying a few steps ahead of the others, you will see the differences in quality and features below. We came out with the ATTACK control in 2001, which one of our COMPetitors finally added in 2005 after years of saying it was not needed. But seems he only added half of an attack control- it only goes one way from the stock setting. Ours is able to ADD or SUBTRACT from the stock setting, which we put in the middle of the range.
We have slowly been improving our Comprossor every year, and are using some of the Saffron Squeeze improvements in all of our comprossors now. This makes them a little more open and less squashed than the other comps on the market. We have also tuned the low and high end of the pedal, so as to keep your signal from being changed.
Revision 4 Circuit:
- Excellent output impedance for a clearer tone with no signal loss or need for a buffer
- More available output for boosting your amp
- No phase reversal
- Less compression available
