Product Description

Featuring cutting-edge Boss technology, the BC-1X Bass Comp outperforms any bass pedal on the market. The BC-1X stomp box features pro-level multiband compression controlled by intelligent circuitry, making it simple to dial in natural sounds for any playing style. The advanced design responds to different dynamics and registers to apply the perfect amount of compression in real time, ensuring that your tone never gets over-squeezed or muddy. Transparent, powerful, and easy to use, the BC-1X is a must-have tool that delivers studio-quality punch and precision for dynamic players.

Boss BC-1X Bass Compressor Effects Pedal Features

  • Intelligent circuitry adapts to every register and playing nuance, providing natural compression that preserves the fundamental bass tone
  • Interactive internal processing enables users to dial in sophisticated multiband compressor settings with simple stompbox controls
  • Professional 18-volt input electronics provide ample headroom for any bass, ensuring clean and punchy sound with no distortion
  • High-resolution gain reduction indicator shows the current compression amount at a glance
  • Digital circuitry greatly reduces noise, a common problem with standard compressors
Advanced Technology for Natural Sound
Compression is an indispensable tool for the modern bassist. While there are many bass compressor pedals available, the BC-1X stands alone as a completely unique product. Unlike conventional units that compress the fundamental tone and muffle the sound, the advanced BOSS MDP tech in the BC-1X provides perfectly natural compression that never overwhelms the character of your instrument. Every nuance is captured and processed accurately, even with aggressive compressor settings. In every register your sound is true, allowing you to put your heart into playing without fussing with different settings for every song or style.

Infinite Tonal Possibilities with Simple Controls
While normal compressors can be difficult to dial in just right, the BC-1X takes all the guesswork out of getting great sound. Hidden behind the pedal’s simple four-knob interface is a complex multiband processor with numerous interlocking parameters. As you turn the knobs, many parameters are adjusted at once, enabling a wide range of tone shaping with minimal effort. And thanks to the intelligent tech inside, you’ll always achieve perfect sounds at every setting, from subtle dynamic control to extreme compression for effect.

Pro Features for Performing Players
The BC-1X was designed with pro practicality in mind. The 18-volt input circuitry provides ample headroom without clipping, even with the hottest signals from active basses. A 16-segment gain reduction indicator clearly displays the amount of compression at all times, a high-end feature rarely seen in stomp box compressors. The pedal’s noise performance is extremely low in comparison with other compressors, another huge benefit brought by BOSS technology. And with the road-proven BOSS compact chassis, the BC-1X ensures bulletproof reliability for years of demanding pro use.
