Pretty much any guitar player could benefit from just the right amount and appropriate type of compression to complete their tone. Compression reduces the volume of loud sounds or amplifies quiet sounds by narrowing or “compressing” an audio signal’s dynamic range. So there are times when this phenomenon can truly accentuate the sound, style, or effect you are trying to deliver.
How does The Accountant sound? It sounds a lot bigger than its size that’s for sure. First off, it is extremely easy to dial in. As you flip through the various pad and ratio settings it starts to become really obvious which setting is best for the particular application. The Attack and Release settings are preset making it easier to quickly dial in a setting that works. With the flick of a few switches you can go from subtle to aggressive compression. The fidelity of this compressor is top notch. At more conservative settings it doesn’t really color your sound, it just adds a little gusto. At more extreme settings, it does impart some pleasing distortion and color. This is very desirable when aiming to squash the signal. It has a really sweet sound no matter what. It has to be heard to be fully understood. If you want a diverse yet simple compressor with a small footprint look no further. You’ve found The Accountant.-Gus Green

Although the new Cream & Onyx Beta sports a fresh look the circuit itself has not been changed and is sonically identical to the original cream and orange version.Made in Canada.
No.1 is the original KHDK Overdrive. Powered by our unique proprietary circuit, the No.1 was born from years of passion and sweat, experimenting and tweaking with the tones we heard, loved and set out to perfect.
As versatile as it is bold, the No.1 is designed in the spirit of an overdriven tube amp. It features two gain controls which cascade the gain stages for a rich and harmonic overdrive. Gain one controls the first gain stage from a pure clean boost to a naturally compressing overdrive. Gain two shares one knob with the Bass control. It cleverly controls the gain and the low end of the next gain stage, which adds rich harmonics, bottom end and natural tube-like saturation to your tone. It is designed as an active high-pass filter for the second gain stage and will allow you to set the amount of bottom end with precision.
Made in the USA.
