Welcome to the Carl Martin Vintage Opto-Compressor - an old-school compressor from the days where colouring was an important factor to the sound.

An optical compressor performs gain reduction control via a light source into a photo sensitive cell - as the light source gets brighter, the photosensitive cell sends a signal to reduce dynamic range, or what becomes a compressed signal.

  • PP3 Battery or Regulated 9v PSU (Not Included)
