BecosFX Introduces the CompIQ PRO Stella Compressor Pedal

BecosFX CompIQ PRO Stella Compressor PedalBecosFX has added to their CompIQ series with the CompIQ PRO Stella Compressor. Designed for bass and guitar, the pedal is described as “highly versatile… providing compression, limiting, and a twist of available harmonic distortion.”

It has six knobs to set the compression – Ratio, Threshold, Attack, Release, Tone and Make-up Gain – with four switches to adjust compression knee, a side chain filter, timing, and the Tilt-EQ frequency pivot. The timing switch includes auto fast and auto slower modes to respond to playing dynamics.

Other features include a dry/wet knob for parallel compression, a tape saturation analog circuit, lo and hi-cut filters, and a six-LED compression display. The CompIQ PRO Stella Compressor is available direct from BecosFX for $279.
