    Anybody tested the Art tcs tube compressor on bass? I really want a rackmount tube compressor, and this one is not alot of money.

    I haven't tested the the TCS but I gig with an old ART Levelar-- wouldn't be without it. I think the TCS circuit is basically the same.

    I like the Levelar because it's very transparent and natural sounding. I get sustain, punch, and even tone without the "squished" sound that a lot compressors produce.

    If the TCS is anything like the Levelar, I think you'll like it.
