Opto compression in a stompbox
Utilizing a photocell and a small light (usually an LED or electroluminescent panel), an opto compressor creates changes in signal gain. The photocell controls the volume of the amplifier that attenuates the volume of the output signal. When a signal gets louder, the light gets brighter, which causes the photocell’s resistance to go down, and the amplifier reduces its gain. The photocell has a gradual and predictable release curve, which is very gentle and musical. Other types of compression typically do not exhibit this type of release curve. The Skyline Komp delivers the unique magic of opto compression in an itty-bitty package!

The Hotone Skyline Series – tiny and stylish

Less than two inches high, less than three inches long, and weighing in at less than 7 ounces, the Hotone Skyline Series of stompboxes offers a compact design, rugged build, and flexible tone. Encompassing a variety of effects including a looper, tuner, delay, octaver, tremolo, various overdrive and distortion effects, and more, all Skyline pedals have a durable zinc alloy outer cover, a transparent top knob that is lit up by two LED lights, and two other knobs that glow in the dark. Each pedal also has a button that gives you more tonal options. These pedals also have a metal bar to prevent you from accidentally moving the knobs with your foot when stomping on the footswitch. The Hotone Skyline Series delivers massive sound in a microscopic package!
