JHS Pedals is proud to present the Whitey Tighty compressor, our take on the classic effect that no one may ever know is on, but when it’s off you feel like your pants are down. The Whitey Tighty is as simple as it gets while never getting in the way. At only 1”x3”, you’ll save so much space on your pedal board that you’ll be able to add to your wardrobe of effects with ease. And with the ability to blend in compression and clean signal, you’ll be able to dial in the perfect sound that keeps everything in place.
The Whitey Tighty is a FET compressor that has three simple controls: Volume, Compression, and Blend. The Volume control gives you the ability to set your volume at unity gain or slightly boosted to make up for any perceived loss from the compression. The Compression knob controls the amount of compression for everything from a subtle smoothing of your tone to a pleasing squash that’s perfect for country, blues, pop, and rock. Use the Blend knob to dial in the right amount of clean tone along with your compressed signal. This allows you to retain some of the natural feel of your clean tone while giving you the studio-quality compression that brings your sound to the next level.
