What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

Designed for the guitarist who "doesn't like compression" but does love sustain and bold tone! This compressor is an extremely musical compressor that is extremely responsive and full of clarity! You don't get the squashed attack like most compressors. You only get the fullness and longevity, which, let's face it, is what most guitarists love.

Duesenberg Starplayer TV III Sparkle Semi-Hollow #150918

In this video, Sound Pure electric guitar specialist Eddie Berman tests out the Duesenberg Starplayer TV III Sparkle Semi-Hollow #150918 with a 3rd Power Wooly Coats Spanky Combo w/ Reverb & Tremolo, a Strymon El Capistan dTape Delay Effect Pedal, and an FX Engineering RAF Mirage Compressor Effect Pedal.


Quick Start
Plug the Amp Cord into the left jack and the Instrument Cord into the right jack. Plugging the instrument cord automatically turns on the power to the pedal. Set both CMP and LVL to 12:00 and Play! 

CMP - Compression - This controls the gain into the compression circuitry. The higher the gain, the greater the compression ration. The red lamp brightens when compressed signal activity is present.

LVL - Output Level - It is a post compressor volume control 

Internal controls - Attack - The Rev-9 introduces this new feature to the Mirage. On the board you will find a blue trimmer labeled "Attack" this controls how fas the compression grabs the note. Turned CW = slower for more "pluck". This also cures the rare distortion from high output pickups. The second trimmer labeled R-LED is to calibrate the voltage to the red LED. No need to adjust unless using higher voltage power.

Footswitch True Bypass - Pressing the foot switch engages the effect in the signal path (Blue lamp ON), or by-passes it (Lamp off)

The Mirage is powered by an internal 9 volt battery for about 20 to 25 hours of "jacked in" time. It also accepts a standard 9 volt power supply. Can be run between 9 and 18 volts. Uses up to 10 mA!
