The LIQUIFIER features a dual-chorus circuit that is designed to deliver rich chorus tones, from subtle to out-of-this-world. Just plug in your bass guitar and dial-in the perfect sound with rate, depth, and effect level controls. There is true bypass, analog design with incredible signal-to-noise ratio. It is built with a roadworthy die-cast zinc chassis and is powered by a 9V DC supply or battery (not included).

The Ampeg OPTO COMP is an analog, optical compressor for bass guitar. It delivers smooth, vintage-style compression, features true bypass, and is equipped with incredible signal-to-noise ratio. The stompbox allows you to dial-in a natural sound, with compression and release controls. Output controls allow you to maximize the sustain and make up for heavy compression. It is designed with a roadworthy, die-cast zinc chassis and is powered by a (V DC supply or battery (not included).
