Handmade in Canada.


"FamiComp is a compressor pedal with a special trick - an 8 bit fuzz which generates midi-like tone to Take that 80's nostalgic feeling to the max. The idea is to have a trick pedal on your board but still preserve valuable pedalboard real estate by serving as a practical compressor when you don't use the 8-bit fuzz. These 2 circuits are completely independent and only one effect can be engaged at a time. Simply tap the left "SELECT" footswitch to toggle between the 2 channels. 

The FamiComp circuit is based on the classic orange squeezer compressor which everyone is familiar with (thus the name). The graphic design, as you can tell, is inspired by the famous video game console of the 80's, Japanese version of NES, which is known as the "Famicom" in Asia.

The FamiComp's Blue channel is a compressor and Red channel is a 8-bit fuzz. The left foot switch toggles between the 2 channels and the right foot switch bypass the effect (master bypass). There are 3 knobs on the pedal, L for level, C for compression, and S for sustain. Note that in Red ch. fuzz mode the C and S knob are bypassed and only the L will remain active. 

On the circuit board there are 4 trimpots. In the lower left corner, from left to right are Bias, Release, and Ratio for the compressor. In the upper right corner is the level balance control for the 8-bit fuzz. The FamiComp offers 3 additional controls for the compressor circuit which aren't found in the original design, giving you more flexibility to get the exact feel and tone you want."
