I feel like I need a pedal to tame those harsh peaks when jumping up and down, and something to make me cut through the band more. I'm considering the EBS Multicomp, the Demeter Compulator or the Keeley two knob compressor. Any other suggestions? I'm not fond of tweaking much and prefer a two knob stompbox. I've had the DBX 160a, which I loved, but I needed a pedal since I often travel with only my basses and pedalboard. The compressor will most likely be engaged at all time. Most compressors sound good when soloed, but tends to drown in a bandsetting. Among the basstones I love are RATM's Tim Commerford (especially on "Evil Empire"), Thrice's Eddie Breckenridge and Tool's Justin Chancellor; in other words I love a heavy midrange sound. All of these bassplayers have a tone that I believe have been processed through a compressor. Also, I use Fender passive P- and J-basses through: - Boss TU-2 tuner - EBS Octabass - Budda Phatbass tube overdrive - Sansamp Bassdriver - Dunlop Basswah Where in the chain would you recommend the compressor to be? Thanks!
