French pedal company Zorg Effects has unveiled the the Oppressor, an optical compressor they say packs tons of control into a small footprint.
Alongside Volume, Gain, and Compression knobs, the pedal has a pair of three-way switches for attack and release to give up to nine combinations of values. It also has a “BAD” switch that offers up some grit to the tone.
The Zorg Effects Oppressor can be purchased mounted or in a DIY kit. Retail price is $188 for the mounted kit.
