mojo hand fx compressor

Mojo Hand FX has unveiled the Clarity Compressor pedal, their newest original design. Blending user-friendly simplicity with sonic versatility, this American made pedal utilizes DSP technology to deliver clean, quiet and transparent compression. You may never want to turn off!


Its straightforward control set makes it easy to adjust your tone onstage. In addition to its compression and level controls, the Clarity compressor includes a Mix knob for blending in the straight, uncompressed signal – a quick, effective way to fine-tune your guitar's attack.

The pedal also allows you to choose between a switchable pair of compression styles. The "Slope" option delivers a smooth, relatively subtle compression function. The "Envelope" option engages a more noticeable "hard knee" limiter effect.

Features

  • Controls for Mix, Compression, and Level
  • Push button selection for Slope or Envelope compression options
  • True-bypass switching
  • 9v, center negative power supply – no battery compartmentBaked-on, extremely durable new "vein" finish
  • Made in USA, limited lifetime warranty

The Clarity Compressor carries a $139 MAP / street price and can be purchased at mojohandfx.com.
