The MASSCOT – A Pure Analogue Sound Sculpting Engine for Guitar and Bass

The MASSCOT (Massive Analogue Sound Shaper – Compressor, Overdrive, Tone) is an effects pedal for guitar and bass players that creates a full, warm sound that is the hallmark of top quality analogue circuitry.

MASSCOT – Massive Analogue Sound Shaper – Compressor, Overdrive, Tone

At the heart of the MASSCOT is a unique optical compressor – a compressor that always sounds smooth but never pumps, due to the custom-designed control circuitry which uses the characteristics of the optical element to shape the sound. The circuit was designed in the spirit of the great circuit designs of the 50s, 60s and 70s, without being a direct “clone” of any of them. rather, a lengthy process of trying design ideas, and then both measuring and listening to the results has given this circuit its unique sound.
