We are very honored to have our CompIQ Stella Pro Compressor + DITOS Transformer DI reviewed in the Bass Magazine Japan. Not only that but we are also very happy that the pedal was reviewed by no other than Masao Wada – amazing bassist for the famous Japanese J-Pop/J-Rock group ゲスの極み乙女 (Gesu no Kiwami Otome). Here are some of his findings:
“Usually, when I use a compression pedal, it’s more like an effect because it sounds cooler playing slap, for example, rather than the use it to even out peaks. That’s why I preferred an easy-to-use comp. But the Stella can be set radically: you can hit only the high peaks with some nuances, or you can make it sound tight. The more granular controls, the more versatile it is, and I think you can do whatever you want with this pedal. Even if you apply a lot of compression, the amount of sound information does not decrease. It has a core body, so in that sense, it creates a high-quality impression. There is no noise and the build quality is high.” – Masao Wada, Bass Magazine Japan 🇯🇵 May 6, 2022
Thank you, Bass Magazine!
