Micro Tube Compressor





Share








The Micro Tube Compressor is a simple class A tube compressor with a single shock-mounted subminiature tube.

These special purpose tubes were developed by the military to operate smoothly under extreme conditions with maximum life span.
Musically they excel with a wide frequency range and lively dynamics unlike other preamp tubes.

Featuring transparent, flat frequency range and pure response with even-order musical harmonics enhanced by Germanium Diodes with asymmetrical clipping.

This versatile and powerful little unit can be used anywhere in an effects signal chain as a Compressor - Sustainer - Limiter.



More than just an effects pedal, it is essentially a single-ended class A tube amp simulator at preamp signal level, with multiple uses ...

- Add it at the end of an effects signal chain and drive an amp's input or power amp, turning it into a single-ended class A amp at bedroom levels, without the need for a power attenuator.

- Plug the output into a recording mixer or PA for genuine class A tube tone and response of a full size tube amp.

- Drive a class D amp of any wattage directly, making it sound and respond like a 100% authentic tube amp.

... or any setup requiring the natural compression of a tube amp.






Micro Tubes (subminiature) - Small size, but sizable warmth, presence, power and transparency.
These special purpose tubes were developed by the military to operate smoothly under extreme conditions with maximum life span.
