Fairfield Circuitry Introduces the Accountant Compressor

The Accountant contains three different threshold settings and is inspired by vintage JFET feedback compressors.

Hull, Quebec (November 7, 2013) -- The Accountant is an all original compressor designed with utility in mind. Inspired by classic JFET feedback compressors of another era, this tool is for discerning musicians looking to gain control of their dynamics, with style.

Don’t let its small footprint and simple controls fool you. This pedal has a wide array of applications, from pedal boards to studios, from barely noticeable to coloured and dirty compression.

Specs:

  • Continuous control of output level (VOL) with plenty of volume on tap
  • Three position input pad (PAD) switch controls compression threshold
  • Three position ratio (RATIO) switch controls amount of compression
  • Typical 9V input
  • Built like a small tank
  • True bypass

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
