The Jackson Audio Blossom is a compact, easy-to-use optical compressor for natural-sounding compression. With the Blossom, you can control your dynamics while preserving your tone to give your sound a subtle level of polish that can make a huge difference.
The Blossom is an optical compressor that has a more transparent sound with a softer attack and release. Unlike many compressors which have a distinct compressed tone, the Blossom won’t colour your tone in any dramatic way. Optical compressors are great for players who want their tone to sound polished and controlled without it sounding obvious that it’s compressed.
The Blossom has a straight-forward 4-knob layout for getting your compression sounding just how you need it. The volume control does what it says on the tin and allows you to keep your volume consistent as you adjust the MIX and COMP levels. The COMP control adjusts the level of compression and the MIX control allows you to blend your compressed and uncompressed signals from all-clean to all-compressed and everything in between. These two controls allow you to shape the compression from soft and subtle through to more aggressive and pronounced. There’s also an EQ control for adjusting how bright or dark you want your tone to be.
