Studio-quality Control at Your Feet

Bring clarity and control into your bass tone with the Keeley Bassist Compressor guitar effects pedal. Designed specifically to handle big bass signals, the Bassist Compressor uses accurate VCA-style compression to give you the ultimate control over your sound. Sweetwater's bassists agree, this pedal is as versatile as they come. You can use it as a limiter to protect your amp and speakers from distortion when you dig in during a solo, as an effect for extra punch during a song, or turn back the compression and use it as a boost. And with special attention paid to bandwidth and noise, the Keeley Bassist Compressor gives you studio-quality compression without the expense and hassle of outboard rack gear.

Keeley Bassist Compressor Guitar Effects Pedal Features:
  • Accurate VCA compression in a simple pedal format
  • Compression, Threshold, and Gain control to dial in just the right sound
Keeley's Bassist Compressor is studio grade compression at your feet!

Keeley Bassist limiter

I gave this pedal bad reviews 2 of them. I have to apologise to all and Seertwater. The pedal is awesome, I thought it was cutting in and out and popping the speakers. And it seem to be I was upset. I took all the pedals out of my Barringer pedal board, it holds 6 pedal but left the Bassist in it. It popped and still went in and out, I got so busy trying it out and trying to find the problem, I never turn on any other pedal with it. So I just took it out of the chain, and hooked my other pedals back up. Guess what same problem with the other pedals. So my sound man took my board a part there was a wire that was a little loose he solder it still didn't sound great. Then he used another 9 volt adapter, everything sounds awesome, a great pedal so please forgive me Sweetwater and everyone else it's an awesome pedal but I couldn't give up on it. Because everything I have gotten from Sweetwater has been awesome. So again all forgive me I will use my board this coming Sunday

Keeley Bassist Compressor

Excellent sounding compressor adds just the right touch. Easy to use. I have several compressor pedals and this is the best.

Bass Compressor

Smooth, beautiful sound with simple controls. Perfect for gigging and probably high enough quality for studio. Tightens up my fuzz pedal and helps create great overall tone. The black Friday price was great too! Thank you Sweetwater.

Keeley bass pedal

needed small compressor for gigs. Have a rack system with compressor for large bass gigs. Saw reviews and took a try at keeley. Better than I expected. Nice tight bass sounds not boomy. Excellent! Makes ordinary bass amps sound great!

Excellent compressor

Believe it or not, I had to have this Keeley pedal replaced by Sweetwater because it didn't work, right out of the box. It would turn on, but the signal would cut out. It was an easy replacement and I was able to return the defective one. No problem. This compressor is so smooth and quiet that I sometimes forget that it's on. I'm not a slap player (I think that's annoying.) So I use the compressor for home recording and to level out my FX. I use a Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah and Boss OC-3 Super Octave. The Keeley keeps the wah from squawking and peaking out my pre-amp. It also keeps the octaver from booming. Sometimes when I crank my amp, I can't hit the low notes of the 5-string bass because my speakers start to "fart out." The compressor helps control the low-end boom so I can hit those essential low notes. It's a great tool for any player or any style.

Sweetwater Advice

Keeley Bassist Compressor

It's easy to like the Bassist. It's quiet, it doesn't color your tone, and it's got great clarity, which makes it a great friend for the studio. It's easy to use and forgiving too....
