Carl Martin Unveils the Comp/Limiter

An updated take on their classic compressor.

Longwood, FL (November 19, 2018) -- The Carl Martin Comp/Limiter is based on our original pro-series Compressor/Limiter, yet without the more complex features like threshold and response.

Just like the Carl Martin Compressor/Limiter, we believe this unit to be the most musically useful guitar dynamics processor on the market. It has been developed to incorporate the same features, sonic clarity, quietness, and performance of the best studio compressor/limiters.

Compression is a very good effect for overall use, it smoothes out your uneven dynamics, increases sub tones which otherwise would stay too weak in the overall sound. It also gives more depth, body and sustain for a fuller sound. This is great for especially solos. Just set the level knob to match the desired solo level. For more compression turn the compress knob clockwise, and adjust your level to match the bypass level.

The Carl Martin Comp/Limiter features top mounted in/output jacks, DC Jack for external PSU.

PLEASE NOTE: The Carl Martin Comp/Limiter does not accept 9V battery, only external 9V DC supply (not included)

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
