One Control Lemon Yellow

The One Control Lemon Yellow is a very musical compressor in a mini case, with controls for compression ratio, amount of compression, and level. A switch on the side allows for increased release time (more sustain), and a small footprint and solid construction round out the feature set.

One Control Lemon Yellow, Builder’s Notes

The One Control Lemon Yellow Compressor is a simple, versatile compressor that delivers extremely high-quality tone. It has separate Level, Gain and Ratio controls, which simplify and speed up the artists ability to add compression for everything from “chicken-pickin” to rhythm and slide guitar styles.

The addition of a Sustain switch on the side of the pedal allows for lower transient frequencies while still compressing the weaker signals. This makes for longer sustain and easier playing. One Control BJF Series FX Pedals were designed by world-renowned pedal guru and mad professor Bjorn Juhl.

All BJF FX pedals can be powered using a 9V battery or standard DC power supplies, and feature true-bypass switching. BJF Series FX pedals are incredibly light (approximately 1/3 lb./ 160 grams) and are built using high-quality, compact aluminum enclosures.
