The PGC captures the natural feel of your amp and speakers compressing as they are pushed. The PGC really shines in a live situation with a band where the heavier-handed compressors (that sound good at home in a room) often sound thick and lifeless against other real instruments. The PGC is already famous for its nearly transparent compression and dead quiet operation. You will also wonder if it’s on at all…until you turn it off to make sure, and then turn it back on as quickly as possible.
We’ve replaced the middle EQ knob with separate Treble and Bass controls that adjust the EQ both pre- and post-compression. The more Bass you add, the more of the classic Dyna/Ross comp (treble cut/bass boost) feel you get. Increase the Treble knob and get more highs and sparkle without adding noise or hiss. And with the comp knob off, it is a booster/enhancer/EQ. Especially tasty into the Honey Bee and other BearFoot drives!
The BearFoot Pale Green Compressor begins as a replica of the BJFePGC – the compressor for people who hate compressors!
We’ve taken the original PGCv1 and added split EQ knobs for greater control and versatility!
