Fairchild Flavour In A Stompbox

J.ROCKETT has introduced the AIRCHILD Six Sixty Compressor. This is what they have to say about it...

The Fairchild 660 studio compressor is consistently regarded as the best compressor ever made. For years, the original Fairchild 660 and 670 (Stereo) compressors have been extensively used in studios. This inspired J. Rockett to offer that sonic signature to the guitar community at a fraction of the $10k – $100k price tag.

The Airchild Six Sixty gets that "660 growl", adds smoothness and EQ. It's a great "always on pedal" that simply makes your tone and feel better - you just want to play more! The J. Rockett Team targeted the slide tones of Lowell George and the singing lead/rhythm tones of Mark Knopfler.
