Studio Daydream | The Ray | Compressor Pedal | Ex-Demo Pedals


This ex-demo pedal comes to us from the personal collection of Brett “Burgs” Kingman, Brett is Australian guitar royalty and a YouTube pioneer. He has toured the world working & recording with such Australian icons as James Reyne, Daryl Braithwaite, Ross Wilson, Renee Geyer, Jenny Morris and shared the stage with the likes of Tina Turner and Robert Palmer, just to name a few.

Check outs Brett’s YouTube demo/review and if you like what you hear, this is your chance to buy the actual pedal from the video. 

From Bispell Audio: 

Highly regarded for its natural compressor sound, The Ray Compressor is back as the Rev.3.0, with an improved internal structure and a range of added functions. The pedal's equalizer has been strengthened to three bands while maintaining the sound of its compressor, ideal as a base for sound making. Using the range switching function, the pedal now has a wider range of sounds that can also be used with a bass.


Adjusts the input level. The ‘HI’ setting sends the highest level signal to the effect circuit. Depending on the input from the guitar or bass pickups and the SUSTAIN knob setting, there may be some distortion. First set the level to ‘HI’, then, if distortion occurs, try changing the setting to ‘MID’ and ‘LO’.

Turn clockwise to increase gain. This is the main control of the compressor part of the pedal. It compresses large inputs and amplifies small inputs to align volume, thereby creating sustain.

Adjusts attack time. At the lowest setting, compression is fast (beginning immediately after picking), while at higher settings, it is slower (leaving a larger input of picking and compressing more slowly).

Use if distortion occurs when adjusting the equalizer, or to cut volume when too loud.

Shelving filter that boosts or cuts high/low end. Set at 12 o'clock for almost a flat sound.

Changes the range (cut-off frequency) of TREBLE and BASS controls.

Parametric equalizer that boosts or cuts mids. Set at 12 o'clock for a almost flat sound.

Sets the frequencies of the Parametric equalizer. Turning clockwise increases the frequency.

Changes the ‘Q’ (the frequency bandwidth where the effect works) of the parametric equalizer. ‘NARROW’ is the narrowest, most 'peaky' setting, ‘WIDE’ is the widest, and ‘MID’ sits in the middle.

* For details on the equalizer, please refer to ‘Equalizer’ section.



Use the VOLUME knob if distortion occurs when adjusting the equalizer or when you want to cut the volume. This unit is designed to boost the volume slightly at the maximum input level ‘HI’ and highest VOLUME setting.

Bypass switch

This pedal uses true bypass, meaning the signal does not pass through the active circuit when bypassed.
When the pedal is powered off, the mechanical relay control automatically switches to bypass state. If the pedal is powered on again, it resumes to the state it was in when the pedal powered off.

Voltage monitoring function

The unit constantly monitors input voltage. When voltage is a certain level above or below 9V, the LED flashes and the unit automatically reverts to bypass state. Please check your battery level or your power supply voltage.
