Up for sale, a 1980s Tokai TCO-1 Compressor effects pedal in excellent condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original box and paperwork. The TCO-1 is a straightforward compressor perfect for live and studio work. The effect has a very smooth response while maintaining the original signal integrity. The Level knob controls the input gain, while the Sustain increases the amount of compression while also acting as a second gain stage. The Attack determines how fast the pedal response to signal transients, while the set release time is nice and slow, avoiding the “pumping” often associated with faster settings.
Cosmetically, this pedal is incredibly clean, with a few minuscule scratches on the enclosure, easily qualifying as near mint. All of the original knobs are intact, and the graphics are pristine. The original box and paperwork are included.
