Part of the Rocktron Boutique Series, the Sacred Fire Compressor was designed to complement the professional line of road warrior stomp boxes with solid performance aspects.
Reliable function and the ability to protect your tone while providing the best compression is what the Sacred Fire is all about! This compressor offers smooth dynamic attack and release.
Controls include GAIN for controlling the Output level (makeup gain) after compression is applied. THRESHOLD controls the level at which compression is performed. SACRED FIRE control determines the amount of compression applied when the threshold has been reached.
The concept of a compressor is to make loud sounds softer and soft sounds louder, letting you avoid peaks in the sound and providing a means to keep the volume even. For guitar, you want a consistent volume level across all strings.
A good compressor will also provide more sustain. As a plucked string's volume dies out, the Sacred Fire will provide automatic gain control to keep the volume of the note(s) at a constant level.
You can achieve lush and richer sounds when combining the Sacred Fire with other effects such as chorus and flanger. When playing chords without distortion (clean), the sustain control helps all the strings become clearer and more distinct while the overall sound will ring with a similar volume level. The Sacred Fire will allow you to hear every note; even more of a desire when using 7-string guitars or guitars with heavy gauge strings.
Sustain is an important part of your playing, and using Rocktron's Sacred Fire Compressor will help you achieve more powerful sustain, especially for your high tones.
The Sacred Fire is best when placed in your signal after your guitar or bass, before other processing.
Like all of Rocktron's Boutique Series stomp boxes, the Sacred Fire comes in a rugged metal chassis with eye popping retro custom laser etched artwork. This is a TRUE BYPASS pedal, when you turn it off, it is out of your signal path!
