The Pigtronix Philosopher Bass Compressor Micro takes their popular Philosopher’s Tone and packs it into a micro-sized stompbox for bassists. Add subtle peak limiting or infinite clean sustain to every note. Use the Blend control to retain your dry signal's string attack while imparting the compressor's punch and sustain. Then crank the Grit control to mix in bass-optimized harmonic distortion. Whether you plug into an amp or go direct, this pedal injects your bass with a distinctive tonal coloration that attracts attention.
