Any suggestions on pedals/units? Please, try to keep under 150 bucks.
As much as I love my SansAmp Bass Driver DI, I can't recommend the Tech 21 Bass Compactor. Very noisy. Good bye.
One word: RNC
Around $200 but worth the extra. This is a pro unit that is waaaaaaay better than anything else in the price range. Really.
I just bought the ART LeVeLAr and I'm lovin' it .
The best part is, it was less than $80!
It is very easy to use - It took me about 2 minutes to get the sound I wanted. It also sounds great (IMO)!
You may have heard/read others say that compressors are just good for adding noise, but this thing is DEAD QUIET.
Keep in mind that I just bought this compressor, and people love to rave about their new toys, so...
...Don't just take my word for how good this thing is - Check out these Harmony Central reviews.
There are 2 minor downsides to this compressor that don't really matter to me.
1 - It is not a rackmount or a stompbox, so you'll have to find a good way to place it in your rig. (I just set mine on top of my rack case.)
2 - It has a wall wart power supply. (No big deal.)
I was really surprised that I could get a compressor this good for less than $80

I'll throw in another vote for the FMR audio Really Nice Compressor (RNC). I think it's $189, direct from FMR. Totally transparent sound and very easy to use. It's a 1/3 rack unit.
I've been using an Alesis Nanocompressor for about 2 years now. It's incredibly effective, and costs less than $100. It's a 1/3 rack unit, but it fits nicely on my pedalboard.
