Designed to deliver a sophisticated, great-sounding compressor in a simple pedal format, our Dual Band Compressor is a must have tool for any modern bass player's rig.
 
Dual Band Compression

While standard compression can sound great, Dual Band Compression takes control to a whole new level. Splitting the signal into high and low frequency bands lets us apply compression independently to each – fast attack and decay for the high frequency and slow attack and decay for the deep bass. This approach let's you fine tune a powerful, punchy sound to your exact requirements – increasing sustain, smoothing out dynamics, adding definition or even boosting volume.

Setting the level

Whether you're using an active or passive bass, the Ashdown VU meter in combination with the Input level knob let's you easily find the sweet spot, ensuring you get the best possible tone in and out whatever instrument you're using.

Built for the road

We know the rigours of the live gigging, that's why we build our pedals tough enough for whatever the road throws at them. Metal casings, premium controls and switches, recessed knobs and kickguards to protect screens and VU meters – bring it on!

True Bypass Switching

We don't mess with your tone. Ashdown Pedals feature genuine 'true bypass' switching for zero-colouration of your input signal when the pedal isn't in use. The Output level control lets you dial in the perfect balance between the effect and the true bypass level.
