"Quality compression will revolutionise your bass sound, but quality compressors are usually expensive and anything but user-friendly. The Bass Squeezer could not be easier to use, providing the bass player with idiot proof compression, pro-quality tone and an overdrive option in an armageddon-proof tiny pedal at an unbelievably low price."

Xvive Bass Squeezer Overview
Arguably, the single most beneficial stomp effect pedal a bass guitarist can acquire is a compressor. However, mastering the art of using compression effectively can be frustrating and many perfectly adequate pedals get cast aside as a result. Xvive have come to the rescue with a pedal that takes all the pain out of compressing your signal and provides even the most technically challenged bassist with an instant pro quality hiss-free squashed signal.
Operating The Bass Squeezer
The Bass Squeezer is idiot-proof! Engage the effect with the bomb-proof stomp switch, blend the amount of compression you desire into your bass signal with the "Compression" control and adjust the "Volume" control to suit your needs. You may wish for the effected signal to match the volume of your bass when the pedal is switched off. Alternatively, you may wish to use the pedal as a boost or even cut the volume. Whatever your compression needs are - the answer is here in a tiny, armageddon-proof box. As an added bonus, this pedal comes complete with an optional overdrive circuit. Simply flick the switch to on and dial in anything from a subtle edge to a dirty overdriven amp sound with the "Overdrive" control. In short, this is a versatile pedal that is easy to use and will revolutionise your bass sound.
What Jamie Mallender says...
"Xvive pedals fulfil my 3 new criteria for effects pedals:-
1. They are built just as well and sound just as good as if not better than any ludicrously expensive boutique pedal.
2. They are tiny, leaving room for lots more pedals on my board.
3. They are inexpensive.
The Bass Squeezer is the compression pedal I have dreamed of owning for years. It makes bass compression easy so that I can concentrate on making music with minimum fuss. The tone is rich and organic and the controls could not be easier to use. This pedal is an essential addition to any professional bass players pedal board."
