The Chandler Limited Germanium Compressor brings premium compression to the Germanium series. Loaded with an incredible amount of highly useful and dynamic features (not just a batch of knobs and buttons), the Germanium Compressor includes an adjustable Wet/Dry mix control, Comp Curve, which gives different types of "character" to its settings for maximum flexibility, and Clean/Dirty Comp, which ditches harsh-sounding harmonics and leaves the tasty 2nd an 3rd harmonics in for even sweeter sounds. You get all this and more with the incredible Chandler Limited Germanium Compressor.

Innovative features; great tone by the bucketload
This function controls the input gain of the Germanium amp. The amount of gain is related to the Feedback control position. The parameters for Ratio and Attack/Release also dialed in by ear. Ratios can go from very gentle to a hard, punchy FET smash. You can dial the Attack/Release from fast to slow. Your ears are your best guide! FET compressors are known for high amounts of distortion. This is usually compensated for in the design. The Dirty Comp removes only unwanted harsh distortion and leaves all the 2nd and 3rd harmonics in place, adding vibrance and elegance by the bucketload.
Your secret weapon: the Feedback control
The Chandler Limited Germanium Compressor's Feedback control changes the amount of signal fed from the amplifier output back to the input. As well as acting as a volume-type control, this knob seriously effects the tone of the unit. Turned to the left, there's less volume and harmonic distortion, and more high frequencies. Set to the right, you get more volume, more harmonic distortion, and a low-end peak around 30Hz. In your constant quest for unique and better sounds, the Germanium Compressor's Feedback control is your secret weapon.
The best results are dialed in by ear, not by test gear
The Germanium Compressor uses resistors, germanium diodes, silicon diodes, or diode combinations to control the ratio of the compressor. Each setting will show its own true character while adjusting the compressor's curve. The resistance and germanium settings are very gentle, while the silicon and zener settings grab harder. This control (among others) was dialed in by ear, not by test gear, helping to make the Germanium Compressor one of the most musical units out there.
