Mad Professor Forest Green Compressor CB
The Mad Professor Forest Green Compressor is now available to the masses. The redesigned pcb isn't the only difference though. The Forest Green Compressor CB features a re-designed Tone control that now gives transparent response at 12 o'clock allowing the user to increase or roll off the treble content unlike the hand-made version.

This is the factory built version of Mad Professors Forest Green
compressor. All components used as well as the assembly is top of the
line and the result is a (relative) wallet friendly compressor pedal
that gives you easily adjustable compression and sustain with minimal
Out of the box, the Forest Green comes with a pedal shaped leaflet with
short instructions and the pedal itself.
The four knobs are Level, Sustain/Compression switch, Tone and
Adjust the Level knob in compression mode for overall level (meaning
the pedal can also be used as a volume boost). In sustain mode the
level knob only applies to the sustained parts.
Next is the Sustain/Compressor know. This is a two way switch on the
hand wired model, but on the factory built version Mad Professor
decided to use a more durable solution. Flick the knob to the laft for
sustain mode and to the right for compression mode.
The Tone knob is also quite simple. Left at 12 o'clock it leaves your
tone neutral. Counter clock-wise boosts the bass and clock-wise
enhances the treble.
Last of the four knobs is marked Compression. In compression mode this
is where you set the amount of compression, or sustain when chosen with
the before mentioned knob. Also here quite intuitive - less = less and
more = more.
The Forest Green has true bypass, jack in and out, 9v center negative
power in or battery and a yellow LED light indicating when on.
The Forest Green works with bass as well as guitars.
From über-tight compression to Spinal Tap-esque long sustain - and
every shade in between - is to be pulled out the Forest Green.
As with other Mad Professor pedals I've tried, the Forest Green is
touch sensitive and responds well to your playing. It is also a very
quiet compressor, you will hardly notice it is on, if at all.
Musically it fits most genres - country artists will probably love it
more than anyone else - but also for ambient music as well as metal,
pop and rock (and surely other genres too), the Forest Green has the
qualities to justify it's purpose and its price tag.
