    What are your settings on the threshold and ratio knobs?

    To achieve no compression I need to set the threshold well below 9 o’ clock with my Jazz bass with Nordstrands and a J-retro With my NS-2 the threshold has to be set at the max (7 o clock) to be usable. With a ca 3:1 ratio I get the maximum gain reduction I want there. (probably around 6 dB or so)

    With my passive P with Fralin pickups, I can maybe go to 9.30 or 10 o clock before compression sets in.

    I also get a soft overdrive when slamming a low E on the Spector, it’s actually kinda pleasing in a slightly broken up tube pre kinda way, but I’d rather get the dirt from a dirt pedal.

    Does this sound normal to you?
