OnkartGromt is a Norwegian bass pedal maker – the name means “Something Good” in that country’s language. The company has currently 5 bass pedals designs under their belt, and The Living Room Gear Demos, in the following video, focused on their compressor, called Grompressor.
The Grompressor is an advanced compressor. Very useful for the bass player.
