G LAB BC-1 Boosting Compressor Makes NAMM Debut

TSI Distributing brings G LAB guitar effects to US market.

(Anaheim, CA, January 14, 2010) TSI Distributing has announced the availability of a new product from European electronics firm G LAB (Guitar Laboratory). The BC-1 Boosting Compressor is a classic analog footpedal design with an optical component to ensure ultra-low noise performance and superior sound quality. The BC-1 is a guitar-specific design that works especially well on crunch and overdriven tones, providing boost and compression as needed, yet without adding pumping or breathing artifacts to the sound.

G LAB has achieved this performance goal by matching its compression setup to the specific signal characteristics of electric guitar and bass. Dual pairs of Boost and Comp controls allow for A and B setups, switchable via footswitch. A second switch takes the BC-1 out of the signal path with G LAB’s noise-free True Bypass optical circuitry, ensuring total transparency of the signal.

The BC-1 Boosting Compressor is especially effective when used with a tube amplifier, achieving a new palette of overdrive tones, producing clean, crunch and overdrive sounds, with or without distortion as desired. For maximum effectiveness, G LAB recommends placing the BC-1 directly after the wah-wah pedal in the signal chain. While the BC-1 is an analog device by design, it can also be controlled via its MIDI input, allowing full, fast, and easy command and control while retaining a clean, classic analog tone.

The G LAB BC-1 Boosting Compressor is priced at $339.99.
