One Control strives to make products that allow musicians to create their own unique tones and efficiently access them live. One Control's main focus is guitar pedal switchers. One Control has a full line of switchers that range from a one-channel true bypass looper all the way to a 10 channel programmable switcher with MIDI capabilities. Whether you have a large complicated pedal board or just a few pedals One Control has products that can make using your effect pedals easier. With most loop switchers on the market guitarists would have to use a separate power supply to power your pedals, but One Control has made the innovation of combining a multi-power supply and an effect loop switcher into one product with products like the Iguana and Xenagama, thus your pedal-board will be less crowded and work more efficiently. One Control also has created the Mosquite Blender, which allows you to chose the amount of saturation your effect has on your tone, and has recently incorporated our highly acclaimed BJF Buffer circuit. In addition to switchers One Control also produces an extremely compact power supply with 9 outputs called the Micro Distro. This high quality compact power supply can fit virtually anywhere on a pedal-board. One Control products allow players to fine-tune their pedal board in a way no other brand can. Before starting the company One Control’s founder had already spent years working in the pedal industry. His experience is not only from using pedals himself, but also assisting a large group of professional musicians with their pedal-boards. After researching the industry extensively and receiving extremely useful feedback from several professional musicians, he set out to create products that not only are high quality but also in reach of the musician. The brand quickly gained popularity in Japan and still increases in popularity not only in Japan but also around the world. As One Control continues to gain popularity ,we continue to listen closely to our customers and respond by making products based on customer feedback and the combined decades of experience that the One Control staff has.
One Control Salamander Tail Loop
The Tri Loop is a very flexibel tool, it combines a 2 loop switch with a flash switch, and offers a huge range of applications.
One Control Purple Humper
Mid-range is considered to be the most important area of guitar sound.
As “distortion” created by overloading the amp is used for guitar sound more often and the sound became more widely accepted, the mechanism that emphasizes the mid-range naturally increases as well.
In the 1960s, some of the amps made in the U.K. had built-in mid-boosters. This was passed down as the sound of foot-operated wah-wah pedals. There are also a number of historic mid-boost effectors as well. The legendary overdrive pedals made in the 70s is also known for their emphasis on the mid-range. The BJFE Purple Humper was originally developed in response to the request to make a more versatile pedal based on the mid-boost circuit built in to the Stratocaster so that it could be used with different guitars. In developing the pedal, the 60s Stratocaster output level was adjusted to the output level of the 60s ES-335 and some more adjustments were made to support various pickups. This is a rare BJFE pedal that was merchandized in limited numbers.
One Control paid close attention to the sound this pedal makes. While there are many pedals that boost the mid-range, the sound of Purple Humper is neither an overdrive nor a half-cocked wah sound. It is not the same as many other mid boosters. It actually provides a supreme British-feeling large output amp tone that has excellent guitar tonal balance instead of a mid-booster that extracts the mid too much and creates a muffled sound.
For example, the Purple Humper changes the not-so-solid sound of a clean transistor amp into a British flavored vintage sound in one spell. An exquisite clean tone that you don’t want to stop playing is the essence of what Purple Humper can offer.
Using the Purple Humper with a distorted amp setting and other distortion effects is an effective way to use it. When used with distortion effects, you can create a real, shiny and smooth guitar sound while maintaining the original distortion feature. The frequency range of the Purple Humper is made to fit various music types that require distortion.
By adjusting the knob and combining with guitar amps, you can change the hard transistor amp clean sound into a shiny British sound, change the Stratocaster bridge pickup into a sound like a hollow body neck pickup, or create an 80s metal lead tone, or add heavier distortion with a single coil.
If you want a British sound, the Purple Humper is ideal for correcting amp and pedals as well.
