Trickfish Amplification – VCA Compressor

by | May 10, 2024 | 0 comments

Model: VCA Compressor
Effects Type: Compressor

The VCA Compressor pedal was born out of a desire to offer a compressor pedal that threads the needle between the transparent and accurate studio compression, and the tonal enhancement (aka magic sauce) that we all love in certain vintage compressors or beloved compressor pedals on the market. The goal was to create a highly flexible, super accurate, and, most importantly, fantastic-sounding compressor pedal. Trickfish settled on a VCA (voltage-controlled amplifier) design with a smart and simple set of controls over the crucial compression parameters.
