FX82 Bass Compressor

Two 'original series' cosmetic variants of the FX82, from 1987 (left) and 1988

The FX82 Bass Compressor was based on the circuit for the FX80B Compressor Sustainer, but voiced for bass guitar. While both DOD and Boss introduced a line of effects pedals targeted specifically at bassists in 1987, the FX82 did not have a direct competitor in Boss' effects pedal line (although the Boss LM-2 Limiter, also introduced in 1987, also works well with bass). The FX82 was produced from 1987 to about 1996.
