The Bassist Limiting Amplifier, from Keeley Electronics, touts studio quality compression and limiting functionality that has been specifically engineered for bass guitars! Don’t be fooled by its unassuming size, the compression and limiting afforded by this pedal is truly astounding.
Constructed around the THAT Corp. 4320, the Bassist Limiting Amplifier provides exemplary compression and the kind of high-fidelity performance that Keeley is known for. The pedal makes use of pristine VCAs, and integrated true-RMS detector, and powerful op-amps to give bass players the emphatic punch they require.
Previous Keeley compressors utilize the CA3080 or the LM13700, which are ideal for single-coil guitars. However, the Bassist is has been designed from the ground up to handle excessively large signals while maintaining an inherently low-noise operation. Consequently, the integrity of the input signal is preserved for maximal tonal glory.
