Analog compressor and booster pedal
Masamune is a legendary Japanese swordsmith of the Kamakura period (1185–1333). He produced some of the finest blades known to man. The name Masamune is synonymous with quality, so here at NUX, we forged a design of combined circuits, compression, dry signal, 2 gain stage of FET boost, routing...
ENTER the NUX MASAMUNE a pedal that offers huge razor-sharp dynamic sound, the quality on the level of a Japanese Katana, and not just any katana, it's MASAMUNE!

The Compressor Section comes with Komp Level, Sustain, Blend, and Clip controls.

NUX Masamune is a sound-crafter pedal
It forges your dry-signal, enhancing your sound before sending your signal to your amp, and/or any effects unit. The Booster adds beneficial color to your signal, and, if necessary, after you adjust the boost & drive levels, you can cut high frequencies on your Input signal with the Hi-Cut Toggle Switch.
Masamune’s Kompressor does a remarkable job managing and enhancing your signal: Komp Level knob adjusts the final Output level for the Compressor, perfectly balancing your Input and Output signals. Sustain knob adjusts the compression ratio, and increases sustain. Higher sustain levels will squash your signal harder when you hit the strings and creates a longer, richer sustain. Blend knob adjusts the compressor transparency from 50% to 100%, so you can dial-in the exact amount of compressed dry-signal blend you want.
Clip Toggle allows you to choose the clipping range of your Input signal. The Toggle-UP position will squeeze the signal for voluminous sound, and Toggle-DOWN will open up more space on your clipping range.
