    Anybody tested the analogman juicer pedal? I will try to buy a couple of pedals in the next couple of months, and a compressor is first on the list.

    Never played the Juicer, but I have/use a BiComprossor, which has a Juicer side to it. I like it, the Juicer is not subtle and is more of an effect than a clean gain reduction compressor. Can add some serious thump, like mixing in a kick drum hit to your bass note.

    hey Greg,
    how do you find the biComprossor on bass? I found it squished the bass even on low settings - I only used it with active basses though. Wondering if I just had a defective unit

    My guitarist has the bicomp (as we've gone on about the other day). He is on vacation till late sunday, so at rehearsal next thursday I'll get him to let me give his a better go with my active basses

    I like it a lot, though it's a fairly recent addition to the arsenal and come to think of it... I don't know that I've played it with an active bass yet. I've used with an RB5, Jazz, and Precision, though not yet with the 55-94, which should give it a good active-bass test. I'll have to report back on that...

    But in terms of squishing the bass, so far I haven't noticed any, whereas I definitely have noticed it with other compressors.
