This guitar pedal is based around an unusual compressor circuit using UV LEDs inspired by the automatic gain control circuit found in an early 70s Grundig reel to reel tape deck.

Check out my YouTube video on how it sounds and works here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_du41EEXtv8

The pedal is housed in a compact and sturdy 3D printed enclosure measuring around 10cm by 6cm and features true bypass switching and two knobs to control the output volume and amount of compression.
It can be powered using any center negative 9V DC guitar pedal power supply. A power supply is not included so you need to provide your own. Also it doesn't run off of batteries. Sorry…

Fully assembled version too expensive? Just get the kit!

The kit comes with all the parts and components you need to assemble it yourself, including the 3D printed enclosure.
Some additional tools like a soldering iron, screwdrivers, pliers and side cutters are required. You probably also want to have some basic knowledge on how to read a schematic and assemble stuff. Just saying.

Still too expensive? This pedal is completely open source and all build files can be found on my GitHub so you can make your own: https://github.com/NuclearLighthouseStudios/Blacklight-Compressor

The pedal sounds amazing! with the distortion low, you get a smooth crunch with your clean signal, and turned up you get a nasty fuzz that's still got a clear tone underneath it so it doesn't sound muddy. Awesome! Easy to build, but I solder for work so I'm not a good judge on difficulty.
