Caveman Audio BC1



Product Details

Balanced LINE IN is one of the things that sets BC1 apart from the rest of the compressor pedals out there. As mentioned, it is more like having a studio rack compressor than a stompbox comp at your disposal.

Therefore, you really get to benefit from coupling BC1 with BP1 or BP1 Compact, running all of your other pedals through the BP1 / BP1 Compact send/return loop, and then use a short XLR mic cable to connect the DI OUT of the preamp pedal to the Line In on BC1.

This way, your Caveman pedals will keep your sound at its finest from beginning to end of your signal chain.

If you don’t use a preamp with a balanced DI out, you can of course use the Instrument input and patch in BC1 the traditional way. In fact, if you use it that way, you should still place it at the end of the signal chain, as BC1 has the same pristine, transformer-balanced DI Out as the BP1 pedals, which is what you want to send to the FOH engineer – or your DAW!
