Designed for guitar and bass players.


The TUX compressor is specially engineered for dynamic sound modification. It uses a passive, sound transparent optical system designed not to alter the original sound and making it virtually noiseless. 


The effect is designed for both guitar and bass.
The bass option is characterized by a crystal-clear sound with high dynamics and a expresive PUNCH.
The guitar option brings in a gentle and saturated compression
typical for tube constructions and supports the sound of the instrument, giving the desired sustain.


The Tux is a compressor which you will like for excellent response, great dynamics and accuracy of sound.  Build-in, internal voltage converter increases voltage of the power supply  up to 24V eliminates any problems durring operation with the active electronics installed in the guitar. The 24V power convertion  provides great sound's dynamic (headroom) and incomparably better performance than traditional effects powered by 9V.The Tux uses a standard power supplies ranging from 9 up to12V.
