New OVNIFX Smoothies are here! This batch uses an optical circuit instead of OTA, and we are really happy with the results.
The new ones have essentially the same tone and action as the originals, apart from these details: It uses a charge pump to boost the 9V supply to a higher internal voltage, to reduce the chance of clipping, for you players with high-output basses. It will be available in two versions: "tough" and "suave". The suave ones soften the compressor's reaction to the initial peaks of your notes, which gives a little more transparent-sounding action and reduces any artifacts. The tough ones respond to your note attack more strongly and quickly, which gives the start of the compression more of a funky character. They are otherwise the same. Guitarists tend to prefer the suave model, bassists tend to prefer the tough ones, but both versions work equally well for both instruments. And lastly, with the new Opto models you can get a serious dip-and-swell effect at the maximum setting of the Sustain knob. Lower settings get a more natural and unobtrusive action.
The OVNIFX Smoothie compressor is packed with features such as clean blend, tilting EQ, super low noise, very wide frequency range, and an LED to indicate the amount of compression. Please visit our website, ovnifx dot com, for all the specs. It does not come with any accessories. This listing is for the "Suave" version.

We offer a "forever" warranty on the Smoothie: if you ever have any trouble with it, contact us and we will do our best to make it right. It's up to our discretion whether that means repair, replacement, or refund.

The video here demonstrates the earlier OTA version of this pedal; we'll post a new video sometime in the near future. Again, the tone and action of the new ones are very close to the what's shown here, but with higher headroom, and a bit more squash and musicality at the highest end of the Sust knob.

A note about international shipping: USPS currently offers two choices for international, Priority and First Class. The cost of Priority has gone up, and is about $50 to almost anywhere outside the US, so I am charging $50. For a while I used the cheaper First Class, but they lost two pedals sent that way! They never lost any of the packages I sent by Priority. So regretfully I must charge you the higher amount.
