The NICOMPRESSOR (pronounced “Nigh Compressor”) offers distinctive tone shaping capabilities. It achieves exceptional compression dynamics while keeping higher-frequencies intact, making your guitar sound incredibly full and fat, without compromising your tone. In seeking to honor, improve, and expand this concept, Catalinbread developed a broader range of functionality and finely-tuned controls.
Controls OverviewBASS & TREBLE ► Expanding on the concept of uncompromising tone, these knobs boost desired frequencies, bringing them to the surface. ► The Treble brightens your tone, making it sparkle, even when compressed. ► The Bass enhances the lower-frequencies and increases sustain when turned up. GAIN ► The Gain allows you to experiment by adding some grit or grain to your sound.
COMPRESSION ► Staying true to its inspiration, this single knob design allows you to find the sweet spot and make adjustments simply and effectively.
VOLUME ► When turned up, the compressor sends out a hot signal, boosting from within. ► When turned down, the next effects in the chain boost the compression.
