Stompbox Compressor, Studio Quality Compression

While studio compressors require a lot of space for circuitry to deliver the perfect compression, the Gurus Optivalve manages to pack it down into a stompbox to ensure players can achieve excellent compression without a studio. Driven by a powerful tube setup, the pedal has all the advantages of the legendary studio outboards which made history in music while remaining incredibly versatile and easy to use. Plug in your electric, bass, or acoustic guitar to find the perfect consistent tone, or hook up your keyboard to add extra life to your sound. The Optivalve is perfect for giving your clean sound more definition, or providing lead tones with plenty of sustain.

Perfect for Enhancing Tone

The Optivalve Compressor/Limiter is the perfect way to add life to your tone, letting you obtain maximum clean volume without adding crunch. Use it at the start of your effects chain to send a consistent tone through your effects, or set it at the end as studio outboard to deliver a crisp tone to your mixer. Use it as a compressor to remove any harsh notes or rumbling sounds, or use it as a limiter to enhance the tonal properties of your playing style. Its intuitive controls provide you with everything you need to get the best sound, while the transparent magic eye lets you view the compression reduction level.
