    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this new pedal; I couldn't find any info on it. Otherwise, could someone recommend a good pedal compressor?

    There are lots of good compressors around. If the BBE pedal functions identically to the rack unit, then it would be a good purchase. I have the BBE preamp, and the compressor on it is great.

    Other pedals to check out:

    EBS multicomp, Aphex Punch Factory, electroharmonic Black or White Finger (haven't tried this one out).

    I think they would have had a real winner if they combined the compressor pedal and the sonic maximizer into one box...

    Many like the Demeter Compulator.

    for those of you interested in the bbe stompboxes, i got in touch with the Australian distributor a few days ago and was told that they would be receiving the first shipment in about a month and that they would retail for around $200 AU. you will need to get your local store to order one in for you though as they wont sell to individuals.
