The Boss BC-1X Bass Compressor is a brand new, compact effects pedal designed with the bass guitar as its primary focus. It is built using breakthrough Boss technology to ensure studio-level multi-band compression, which is specifically appealing to bassists who record music and often give live performances.

The BC-1X keeps many similar functions from its counterpart, the BB-1X, while driving the MDP technology up a few notches now, thus allowing you to shape and customise your tone. As a live musician, you require an element of simplicity when it comes to assembling your rig, and the BC-1X is compact in size but has the power to transform your bass so you’ll never want to leave this behind.

The pedal has four recognisable and easy-to-use controls; Level, Release, Ratio and Threshold, as is often found on a bass compressor pedal. Below the controls there is a convenient 16-segment gain-reduction indicator, which shows you the amount of compression being used in real time. This sets the BC-1X apart from other bass compression pedals out there.

The BC-1X has an intelligently built-in multiband processor with various parameters which allow you to efficiently dial in multiband settings. So, as you adjust the controls to suit your playing needs, these parameters beneath the stompbox are being simultaneously adjusted too, giving you plenty of tone at the twist of a button. The MDP technology used to build the pedal ensures that the perfect tone is always accomplished accurately and with minimal fuss.

The BC-1X has 18 volt input circuitry that does not alter or ruin the true sound of your bass guitar, while also making this compression pedal ideal for professional use, whether onstage or in the studio. Its ability to cut out any unwanted noise is a commendable feature to have at hand.

The Boss BC-1X is a reliable bass compression pedal in a durable chassis, built to withstand years of stomping on your rig.
