Product Description

The Electro-Harmonix Black Finger Tube Compressor Pedal is the only optoisolator photocell, dual vacuum tube compressor pedal on the market! So what does that mean?
It means that the Black Finger uses the same professional-grade techniques that the most revered, vintage and mega-thousand dollar, high-end studio compressors use, except that it's in the form of an affordable, compact foot pedal! Two different light sources (LED and lamp) provide distinctly different readings and offer uniquely varied compressions. One tube handles the compression stage while the other manages the gain stage. And unlike other tube hyped products on the market, which use 9 to 50 volts, the Black Finger's design allows a full 300 volts of swing to be utilized. This makes it a true tube compressor in every sense.

Whether used as part of an effects loop or with direct guitar, bass or voice, the Black Finger will give music the type of treatment that simply cannot be achieved via plug-in emulation or with any other analog or digital product that doesn't cost thousands of dollars.

The Black Finger breathes life and warmth into any musical instrument or recording and makes it sound magical. It's further proof the Electro-Harmonix is changing the way players think about their pedals.

Your general opinion of this product.
Like All Electroharmonix products these were built for guitars. Ive used a couple of older tube compressors, one of them a really nice La2a copy and they sound good, but not better than this pedal. I dont really like what modern "studio" compressors do to the sound of an electric guitar at all. they make everything sound like everything else. For 4000 dollars you can buy a digital thing that does for guitar what autotune does for vocals. ill pass.for 200 bucks the Blackfinger is a no brainer.

Your general opinion of this product.
OVERALL:
I am very happy with my BlackFinger. You could easily spend 2 or 3 times the price on a rack unit to get the same sound. It is very useful and versitle.

QUALITY:
This is a very strudy unit. The knobs are solid and the action is precise

FEATURES:
The Lamp mode compression is very good. I don't really find the LED mode to be useful as it is a little too subtle of an effect. LED might be useful if you used this unit for mastering. It comes with it's own special power supply which is nice but the Power adapter could be a little sturdier.

EASE OF USE:
This product is very easy to use. The only problem I had was that the plug must be on a different ground from your amp or you pick up some ambient FM signals with the pre-gain turned up.

VALUE:
The quality and price of this product are a real value. I was a little hesitant but once I got and playing it, I was happy.

SOUND:
