Optical Compressor

Glorious, Comrade!
Named for that little satellite-that-could, and like the time when the Soviets were kicking ours in the space race the Sputnik 5:1 ratio analog optical compressor likewise kicks butt.  Junior cousin to the Sandwich, its détente of simplicity and performance is as clear as its fidelity, so you can rest easy knowing you will not be running into a well guarded wall of noise on the way.  It is as easy to operate, powerful, and indestructible as an AK-47 with a motif not out of place in your latest MIG or Typhoon class submarine.  Designed for every player with soft knee limiting and transparent tone.  Just set the Squeeze control for the amount of compression and you're done!  The output is hot enough to be used as an overdrive, yet clear and smooth as Russian Vodka.   The bonus jumbo red satellite performance LED shows the compressor at work.

  Great for both bass and guitar alike.

All new Frantone effects come with full signal bypass and status light!
