Mad Professor / FOREST GREEN COMPRESSOR / Green / Effect Pedal For Sale
BJF design guitar and bass Compressor/Sustainer pedal
Hand-made in Finland premium qualitydesign phaser pedal.
FOREST GREEN COMPRESSOR (FGC) is designed to meet the highest standards of guitar and bass compression.
There is extremely low noise throughout the range and a high overload margin, which allows also a wide dynamic input range at minimum distortion and noise.
FGC is equipped with a special tone control to fine-tune the compressed sound for most transparent tone and effect.
The pedal has a switchable compressor and sustainer mode.
In Sustain mode you can get a very dynamic, touch sensitive tone with a long sustain. Here the attack is not lost, making the pedal suit-able even for blues players and works great with slide playing.
Like all Mad Professor pedals FGC is hand made in Finland using only premium compo-nents, to give years of trouble free operation with superb musical tone.
LEVEL: in Compressor mode adjusts the overal volume and the FGC can be used even as a booster. In Sustain mode the Level no longer adjusts total output but the level of the sustained part.
COMPR.: Sets the amount of compression and sustain. Lower settings give mostly peak limiting, higher settings more compression and less touch sensitive response. At maximum the output will be heavily compressed, while still retaining clarity at almost infinite sustain.
A good starting point for this control is a bit below centre (ten o’clock) with most guitars.
TONE : Tone control on FGC is designed to fine-tune the compressed sound for most transparent tone and effect: Adjust CCW for full range compression and set at noon for tighter sound with a little less bottom end and turn fully CW to slightly reduce upper treble.
COMPRESSOR/SUSTAIN SWITC.: Attack and decay times are carefully fine-tuned and internally set for swift attack and slow decay. Sustain/Compression switch set for Sustain the attack is preserved allowing dynamic touch and ease of playing as the FGC amplifies the decay and weaker parts.
For standard compression set mode switch to Compressor.

Harri Koski: Guitarist, marketing, cordinating the production, helping hand.
Harri has been playing guitar since mid 70´s and his serious hobby turned into a business when he started Custom-Sounds (www.custom-sounds.com) in 1996. Custom-Sounds was a high-end guitar gear company from the beginning and it was one of the first “boutique" guitar shops on internet. His co-operation with Bjorn Juhl started the BJF pedals business and soon these two soul brothers were talking about the ultimate amplifier. Bjorn Juhl and Harri had the mad idea about designing the ultimate guitar tube amplifier and to make it right here in Scandinavia. Bjorn put on his propel-hat and Harri put all his energy and money into this project. Soon we found the right people to work with us and the world got a brand new amplifier that was not a clone of any vintage amp as these modern hand-wired amps often are. Harri has a collection of various Gibson guitars and early JV Squier Fenders and plugs these into his serial no: 000 Mad Professor prototype head that is played loud almost every day.
Tapani Santanen: Guitarist, industrial designer, interior architect SIO.
