Orange Amps Kongpressor Optical Class A Compressor Guitar Pedal with 12dB Clean Boost for Electric Guitars
Optical Class A Compression:
The Kongpressor’s analog, Class A design makes for very natural sounding compression. The vintage-inspired optical circuit adds extra depth to your guitar or bass tone, making it seem ‘larger than life’. The attack and release times can be adjusted to taste allowing for fine-tuning of the bloom and perceived plectrum gauge. Faster attack times will react to the front of the note faster, while slower attack times will add punch to the sound as the compression reacts slower on the transient. Fast release times will give more perceived clean volume along with a more transparent compression. Slower release times will yield more compression and a slower, mellower bloom. With any attack or release setting, the Kongpressor has a satisfying, springy playing response under the fingers.
12dB Clean Boost:
With up to 12dB of clean gain available on the Volume control, the Kongpressor works brilliantly as a transparent clean boost pedal, but with a little extra ‘something’. With the compression turned up, your lead lines will cut through the band with plenty of fat, singing sustain.
Internal Charge Pump:
Like all Orange pedals, the Kongpressor features an internal charge pump that doubles the operating voltage of the pedal to 18V. This has the effect of drastically increasing the headroom for super clean compression. The Kongpressor can be powered by a 9V battery or standard DC adapter, or for even more output can also run on 12V DC.
Transparent Buffered Bypass:
The Kongpressor’s bypass features an ultra-linear buffer that retains your guitar’s upper harmonic content when the pedal is switched off. Maintain tonal integrity even with long cable runs and large pedalboards.
