The ever popular Tone Press now has an even smaller footprint! All of
the great compression you'd expect PLUS the addition of two toggle controls.
One "Speed" toggle for controlling how quickly the compression attacks your
sound, and a "Brilliance" toggle to add extra shimmer to the high end
of your compressed tone.
Don't be fooled by harsh/trebly poor quality imitations! Barber is the
pioneer of compression pedals with adjustable blend. Barber maintains
phase from input to output. Demand proper phase in your compression
pedal. The Barber Tone Press is the real deal for superior parallel
together the very best of classic guitar compression and time-honored
recording techniques, the Barber Tone Press is a revolutionary
performance compression pedal that has no rival.
research and development, Barber studied the problems associated with
classic guitar compressors and their recent clones and found that,
while the clone-makers build pedals with improved components (cleaner
switching, in particular) and matched transistors, a few of the major
drawbacks of those “vintage” designs still exist. The most glaring
drawback of popular classic compressors (and their clones) is that they
reverse the guitar’s phase and cause a “pop” (squashed attack anyone?)
at the beginning of every note. Although we now see some compression
units that have “attack controls,” they leave a bit to be desired as
they require seemingly endless trial and error tweaking – and no
solution? Parallel compression, a Barber innovation that blows away
having to deal with attack, ratio and release knobs of other so-called
"studio compressors." Barber developed a one-of-a-kind and quite
proprietary continuous “blend control” circuit and combined it with a
discrete “Class A” FET mixer circuit to allow you to continuously blend
the natural signal of your carefully selected guitar with a
“phase-corrected” classic compression circuit. The result? What guitar
players have always wanted - unaltered attack and supernatural sustain
and resonance, no studio engineering degree required.
• Precision components - Panasonic capacitors and
metal film resistors for low noise.
• True bypass switching with
led indicator -
this is achieved by using an extremely high grade switch, in addendum
Solid 20 gauge copper hookup wire is used between the jacks and
switching to create the most transparent bypass yet.
• Full size pots - for durability and for
easy serviceability if needed.
• Cast aluminum enclosure -our incredibly durable
enclosure will last decades if not centuries!
• Double sided pc board with
plate through holes -This
is the way the military does it when they want electronics to work
FOREVER! all pedals should be made this way , few are....once again
Barber electronics draws the line in the sand!
