From The Chairman
I would like to personally thank youfor selecting one of our effects pedals.For over 40 years the Marshall name has been synonymouswith the greatest guitar tones in music. We have worked handin hand with guitarists from all levels throughout the world tomaintain and improve that special ingredient, ‘The MarshallSound.’Our range of effects pedals gives the opportunity to augmentthe classic Marshall tone to add Marshall character to a guitarset-up.All our pedals are made with the same utmost attention toquality, in both materials and manufacture as our worldrenowned amplifiers, cabinets and combos, in order to provideyou with optimum reliability and tone.I would like to wish you every success with all of your musicalendeavours and also your new Marshall effects pedal, which Iam sure you will find a pleasure to play for many years tocome.Yours Sincerely,
       E       N        G       L       I        S       H
Compression is perhaps one of the most useful and versatileeffects available to any guitarist who is interested in improvingtheir tone.The purpose of the Compressor pedal is primarily to allow youto modify the sustain and attack of your guitar sound. Usingclassic variable gain techniques the Compressor will providemasses of clean sustain, which you can utilise whatever yourstyle. The Compressor pedal senses the level of the incomingguitar signal and as the signal level decays the gain of theinternal circuitry is boosted to provide extra level and hencesustain.The attack control modifies the dynamic response of the guitarsignal (the effect of plucking a string) and allows you toachieve a range of effects from rounded and mellow topercussive and funky.The Compressor also features an Emphasis control whichallows you to assign compression and target the frequenciesyou want to compress. This means that you can, for example,tighten up or compress your bass notes and let your treblenotes ring out.The Compressor features a passive bypass for the main signalpath to ensure complete tonal integrity and has a quality oftone matched only by its versatility.Here follows a complete run down of The Compressor’sfeatures for your information. We have also enclosed anumber of suggested settings to help guide you. It should beremembered though that these are only suggested settingsand you should really take the time to experiment.Though the Marshall Compressor can produce traditional typeeffects it is also ideally suited to the player who wantssomething a little bit different. So take the time to explore thesonic avenues opened to you by the Compressor, you won’t bedisappointed.
1. Out Jack
This is the output of The Compressor and is for connectionto the amplifier or to another effects pedal.Always use good quality shielded leads.Always use 9V regulated DC supply with centre negative.Although it may seem obvious the first action in achieving agood effected sound (be it duration / compression etc.) is tofind the perfect bypassed sound. This will then allow thecorrect level to be set with the effect unit to allow a cut orboost in volume and a realistic tone.On clean channels it is advisable to set the gain (or volume)to a setting of no less than one quarter maximum so as not toget unrealistic results due to any volume dependent tonalshaping on the amplifier preamp.As is inherent in circuits of this type the increase in gain atlow signal levels inevitably leads to unwanted extra noise asthe circuit gain is maximum when the signal level isminimum. Many players overcome their problem withdiscerning use of a swell pedal or simply utilising the bypassfootswitch during performance.
