An easy to use pedal that greatly enhances your sound, the Lemon Yellow compressor pedal. In the complex and often misunderstood world of compressors and sustain pedals, Bjorn has designed a very simple pedal that covers all of your needs. The Lemon Yellow Compression is simple, versatile and promises a high quality tone.
One Control Lemon Yellow Compressor Pedal Features
- Enough Gain and Level to create a slight but tasty distortion
- Power or 9V battery-operated
- Current Draw: 10mA @ 9V
- Controls: Level, Gain, Ratio, Sustain
The Lemon Yellow Compressor has separate Level, Gain and Ratio controls, which simplify and speed up the artists ability to add compression for everything from 'chicken-pickin' to rhythm and slide guitar styles. In classic BJF style, these controls do exactly what they say. Ratio controls compression ratio from 1:1 up to 5:1, Level controls the pedals output volume, and Gain controls the VCA (Voltage Controlled Amplifier) up to 18dB.
There is easily enough Gain and Level to tastefully overload the input on your amplifier giving you a very slight but tasty distortion. Depending on your style of play and your tonal requirement, there is a Sustain switch on the side of the pedal which will allow the lower transients while still compressing the weaker signals. This makes for longer sustain and easier playing. The Lemon Yellow Compressor can be used for all guitar styles, and also for bass and keyboard.
Like all One Control Effects pedals, the Lemon Yellow Compressor is housed in a machined and anodized compact aluminium case, with only the best components inside to assure years of trouble free use. The pedal can be powered by a 9V battery but we do recommend the use of a balanced power supply to maximize the life and quality of this effect.

Introducing the One Control BJF Series FX Pedals
The only musical instrument products that outnumber guitar effect pedals are probably the guitars themselves. There are companies who specialize in cheap pedals, expensive pedals, single effects, multi-effects, analog, digital, boutique and so on. There are companies that specialize in one type of effect and others that offer every possible effect
What there are very few of, are companies that offer a custom designed series of pedals by a renowned and reputable designer with a vision. One Control and Bjorn Juhl have collaborated to create pedals that are able to compliment each other, but can still be used individually.
Who or what is BJF?
BJF is Bjorn Juhl, the mastermind behind companies like Mad Professor and Bearfoot FX (both boutique pedal manufacturers). Bjorn is known as a legend in certain areas of the world, and is known for casting aside popular concepts and principals in his effect designs… Analog, digital, true bypass, buffered….Bjorn does whatever it takes to dial in the sound he envisions. They say that musicians paint their sounds on silence... With that in mind, take a look at the 22 Bjorn Juhl designed pedals from One Control, and start thinking about your next canvas!
