Crystal clear tone  (By fatoomsh)

Decent bass comps are hard to find....the good ones add annoying noise and hum. The quiet ones don't perform that well. Usually bass players are also required to scratch around with guitar comps but this one is specifically set up for 4 bangers.
The Diamond offers crystal clear tone, deep lows,virtually silent operation and a tilt eq feature to let you dial right in on what you want. 'Fat and shiny' seems to be the most accurate description I've heard.

Running at 15 or 18v, instead of 9 gives bassists the much needed headroom to actually let the compressor do its job but geware of tye reverse polarity power or your comp will have a very short life. You need an adaptor to run this unit properly.

True bypass, solid construction, very high quality finish, ease of use...its all there. As with all good comps, you wont even notice it working its magic, but your tone will feel the love instantly.

This is not a peak limiter though. It has a low comp ratio and won't even out big spikes in signal. But it will noticably improve tone and clarity.

Probably the best investment in gear Ive made since buying my Stingray 20 years ago. I can't recommend this or any Diamond gear highly enough. (Posted on 6/16/14)

Diamond Guitar Pedals Bass Compressor

Renowned for their excellent guitar effects pedals, Diamond Guitar Pedals now introduces their Bass Compressor effect pedal. Diamond Guitar Pedals' compressor for guitar was widely acclaimed for its excellent tone and response. As the designers at Diamond soon discovered, the Diamond compressor pedal for guitar also began to become popular with many bass players also looking to add stability and sustain to their tone. For passive 4-string basses, the Diamond compressor for guitar worked wonderfully many bassists found, however with 5 and 6-string basses, as well as higher output active basses, the Diamond guitar compressor's limitations became more noticeable. This was mainly due to the fact that the Diamond guitar compressor was designed to have the frequency response and headroom for electric guitars. Diamond Guitar Pedals however have solved all these issues by introducing the Diamond Bass Compressor pedal. Featuring all of the fantastic tone, features and quality of the original guitar compressor pedal, the Diamond Bass Compressor is specifically designed for basses of all ranges and output levels. The Diamond Bass Compressor features an On/Off footswitch as well as Volume, EQ and Compression level controls to allow you to dial in exactly the tone and amount of effect you desire. As a unique feature to the Diamond Bass Compressor pedal, it features a Tilt EQ control toggle switch. This allows the frequency Tilt to be set at either the original Tilt point of 900 Hz, or it can be switched to the new option of 250 Hz as a tilt point. Designed and built as Diamond's first specific bass effect pedal, the Diamond Bass Compressor features especially low frequency response, going down to 20 Hz. Like all Diamond Guitar Pedals, the Diamond Bass Compressor is built with premium components, including 2% polypropylene capacitors, 1% metal film resistors and professional grade opamp. The Diamond Bass Compressor pedal offers a true bypass signal path for smooth, responsive optical compression on any bass.
