Jackson Audio Blossom er en optisk kompressor og det er et enkelt og lett anvendelig verktøy for deg som er på jakt etter en god compressor.

Pedalen er kort fortalt kompressorsiden på Bloom-pedalen og det er nok en pedal som ble satt i produksjon pga tilbakemeldinger fra kundene.

For å komme innpå det litt kjedsommelige tekno-babbelet kan vi fortelle at pedalen er designet med en 'optical limiting circuit', og den er sterkt inspirert av kompressorer som ble produsert da de brukte rørteknologi i alt studioutstyr.
Blossom kan levere ganske ekstreme settinger, men styrken til pedalen ligger med mer subtile tilnærmelser hva innstillinger angår, da subtil og transparent er gjennomgående temaer.
For å kunne tune den supersubtilt er pedalen også utstyrt med en blend-kontroll som lar deg mikse det komprimerte signalet med det rene gitarsignalet.

Specification

VOLUME CONTROL
Acts as a master volume for the BLOSSOM. Changes to the COMP and BLEND knob will typically necessitate a change to the Volume control to keep the overall level the same.
TIP! – When using high levels of compression, keep the VOLUME control at 3:00 or lower to avoid any unwanted clipping in the compressor circuit.

EQ CONTROL
The BLOSSOM features a very unique EQ circuit that is known as a «tilt» EQ. When the EQ control is set at the 12:00 position, the tone of the BLOSSOM is totally flat. When the EQ control is rotated clockwise, the treble frequencies are increased and the bass frequencies are decreased. Conversely, when the EQ control is rotated counter-clockwise, the treble frequencies are decreased and the bass frequencies are increased. This type of EQ is very effective when trying to adjust your tone to «fit in the mix.» You’ll that when you adjust the EQ to a brighter setting, not only will your guitars tone stick out more in the mix, but your low end will trim up and add clarity to your tone.

COMP CONTROL
Turn clockwise for more compression. Balance this with the BLEND and VOLUME control.

MIX CONTROL
Allows you to blend in your clean uncompressed signal with the compressed signal. Full counter clockwise is full compression. Fully clockwise is full clean signal. TIP! Try running your COMP knob full up and use the BLEND control to adjust the intensity of the compression. Doing this will allow the attack of your note to feel normal while adding sustain to the back end of the note.

DC INPUT
The BLOSSOM can safely run from 9V-18V DC (center negative). Running it at 18V will give increased headroom and dynamic response. Do NOT exceed 18V!
