SWINDLER EFFECTS Workers Comp Compressor


Swindler has partnered with New York City based designer Matt Kraus to create the Functionalist Design Series, an homage to the design principles of Dieter Rams. The Functionalist Series is sleek and minimal, and contains the exact same circuitry as our Signature Design Series.

For too long, guitarists everywhere have labored against poor sustain and inconsistent dynamics. The time has come to unite against the oppressive forces of tone loss, and to reclaim the tone that is rightfully ours. TheWORKERS' COMP is here to help. A fresh take on an old classic, it uses a unique configuration of the same chip found in the beloved Dynacomp and Ross Compressors to produce that familiar compressed sound, but with some much needed improvements. TheWORKERS COMPoffers more headroom with less noise, and additional controls to help fine tune your sound. It can go from adding just a hint of sustain and consistency to seriouslysquishy.

We've included level, compression, attack, and release controls, and upgraded tosoft touch, true-bypass switching,so the only sound you'll hear will be the singing of your guitar.

Also included is a bright switch that helps to reclaim some of the high frequencies and sparkle that can be lost during compression.
