The original Diamond Compressor has become one of our most well known products, loved by players for it's smooth response and ability to enhance your instrument's tone. Turns out that bass players have discovered the Compressor (many via it's discussion on the TalkBass online forums) and while it generally works great for 4-string passive basses, the performance with 5/6 strings and high output active basses was less than ideal as the frequency response and headroom was optimized for guitar use.

Our response to that interest is the new dedicated Bass Comp, the first Diamond pedal designed specifically for bass players. With low frequency response extending down to 20Hz and increased headroom, the Bass Compressor is ideal for 4/5/6 string basses, both active and passive.

We've also revoiced the Tilt EQ control, offering bassists the choice of the original 900Hz tilt point or a new 250Hz setting, accessible via a mini toggle.

Features:
-Smooth, optical compression/limiting
-Premium audio components, including 2% polypropylenecapacitors,1% metal film resistors and a pro audio grade opamp (our signal path opamp alone costs 8 to 10 times
what the industry norm uses).
- Innovative 'tilt' EQ provides a very musical tailoring of frequency response - selectable 900Hz or 250Hz tilt point
- Dual AC capacitive coupling paths for improved
transient response.
- True bypass signal path
- 18V power supply included

This Bass Comp. is amazing and I won?t play without it; always on. It does add a little warmth to the tone but I wouldn?t say it adds an effect or "colors" it. You could use a lot of other Comp. pedals with more options/settings to achieve the Tone and Compression you want but this compressor is well designed and easy to dial in. You can turn off the tilt EQ via an internal switch if you like but I set mine to about 10:00 and Comp. at 2:00 or 3:00. It handles my active 5 string with no trouble. Your front of house tech will like this Comp. for your Bass.

Some reviews can be totally misleading. I am happy to tell you this bass comp gives your everything and more. It is soo easy to use and it is beyond transparent. Plus it is made in Canada. I have no regrets with this product.

This box does something hard to describe, warms up the sound without noticeably squashing your dynamics. It loves a Fender bass!

I've used the famous rnc by fmr (also great), digitech bass squeeze (too crunchy) and a bunch of others over the years. the diamond bass comp is by far my favourite. transparent, smooth, easy to use, and brings a little magic goodness in a way that's hard to describe. perfect.
