compressor before big muff- whats it going to do to my distortion tone?
I bought a luthite Soundgear bass which is lacking on sustain. I've tried adjusting the pickups and replacing the battery to no avail. So, i've decided a compressor is probably the solution, but i don't know whats going to happen to my big muff's tone with a comp in front of it. I know ideally I would turn off the comp when I turn the muff on, but that would require three legs/feet and I only have two.
I'm just wondering if I have the comp on all the time how it might affect my distortion tone. I don't plan on setting the comp to any kind of ridiculous setting.
On a side note- what would be a nice, cheap compressor to get me some better sustain?
I'm a weapon of mass distortion.
