compressor help needed
Iíve been wanting to buy a compressor pedal for a long time now and I have done tons of research. Iíve read practically every related thread, checked every website (even ovnilab), but I cannot figure out what I need. I just canít seem the find the forest through the trees anymoreÖ
So Iím just going to tell you my situation and hope you guys can just tell me what to buy.
I play a fender American standard jazz bass (which is passive) and I have a couple of effects I play it through, my amp is a marshall mb4410. I really like my tone, no, I REALLY LOVE my tone and I do not want it to change what so ever! I mostly play with a pick, but sometimes fingerpickiní is just a must to get what you need. When I play finger style, I often get those hard pops and peaks in my sound when I pluck the strings to hard. Also, when using an envelope filter, it just gets those sharp peaks from time to time. I would love for these to go away, but I need my tone stay unaffected from it. Do I need a limiter of a compressor? And most of all which one? I would hate it if my tone where to changeÖ
Thanks in advance!
