Mayfly Introduces the Flat Earth Compressor

The Flat Earth has minimal knob count and feed-forward compression circuitry.


The Mayfly Flat Earth uses Feed-Forward circuitry which determines the amount of compression by analyzing the signal before it’s compressed. Old school compressors (you know: the Red one, the Orange one, the Grey one)use Feed-Back circuitry which looks at the signal after it’s already compressed. This results in noise, pumping, and tone-loss.

Boutique pedals based on older designs try to get around these problems by adding more knobs: blend knobs, tone knobs, etc. According to Mayfly Audio, "The Flat Earth has minimal knob count to allow guitarists to get to ‘wow’ quicker."

  • Feed-forward compression circuitry: great compression that’s easy to setup
  • No pumping or other compression artifacts
  • Very low noise floor, very low distortion
  • Level, sustain, and attack controls. That’s all you need
  • Full bypass using relays with Fail Safe (automatically switches to bypass if the pedal loses power)
  • Cast aluminum enclosure with stunning artwork
  • MSRP $149 USD ($199 CAD) direct online

Fender’s American Vintage II Series

For these new recreations, Fender focuses on the little things that make original golden-era Fenders objects of obsession.

If there’s one thing players love more than new guitars, it’s old guitars—the unique feel, the design idiosyncrasies, the quirks in finish that all came from the pre-CNC era of instrument manufacturing. These characteristics become the stuff of legend, passed on through the years via rumors and anecdotes in shops, forums, and community networks.
