The right kind of bloom !

Possibly the best "one knob" compressor I have ever used !! guitar or bass. It seems to have the proverbial PDR or "program dependent release". Quick release if you only go over threshold a little bit quickly but , and this is what is very good ....slower release after a longer period of squeezing things . Can also add analog harmonics when asked ( transformer mojo ) I'm a compressor geek and was hesitant because of the lack of controls ( which can become a curse instead of a blessing as well ) and decided that the guys behind this one might know a thing or two ... They most certainly didn't disappoint!! Thanks to my main man A.J. Becerra ... Always a pleasure to work with you !

Just another pedal

II bought this together with wessex overdrive pedal with a great excitement because I have many Rupert Neve products in my studio and they all sound stellar. However this ended up with a disappointment as soon I plugged the guitar to it. Either the transformers don't work at this stage of the chain or either the rest of the circuitry is designed incompatible with them. I have several bogner gear as twinjet amp, ecstasy red pedal and uberschall pedal and I love them so don't think that I have a personal problem with the brand. To make it short, harlow is too noisy at a point of being unusable when the volume is more than 9 o'clock position. It even bothers you at 9. I think this is the reason why you don't see that knob over 9 o'clock in any youtube demo. The bloom (compressor) is not capable of grabbing the sound no matter how you hit it, it is too far from a dyna comp pedal. The wessex is not noisy as harlow however it didn't deliver any transformer magic that people rave about, the only thing I heard after playing for 20 years of rock music is an artificial and transistor type of cheap sound. My ts808 just smoked it in an ab test. I finally returned both. Don't buy those without hearing yourself and comparing with other pedals if you don't want to end up with returning procedures.

Sweetwater Advice

My bass DI rig includes the Two Notes Torpedo CAB, an RJM buffer, and a variety of pedals/processors depending on the gig. Like a lot of us, I experiment with a variety of gear on a quest to find the tone in my head. I read about the collaboration between Bogner and Neve and had a lightbulb moment when I saw the Harlow. I thought, the CAB has great resolution and a more surgical EQ. My basses have specific active EQ, why not go for a more stripped down external preamp? I knew it would be good but I kick myself for not getting one sooner. There's a weight and dimension to the sound but the color isn't so overt that you can't hear the instrument. Lots of headroom. The compressor can be set for subtle or total squish. Plays well with others pedals. Super solid build. And the size gives me more real estate for other toys!
