    I'm planning on buying a compressor and after much research here on TB and other review websites I've narrowed them to these:

    1. DBX 163X used (apr. $70)
    2 Art Levelar used (aprox. $70)
    3. Carl Martin Compressor new or used ($179 new)

    which of these is the best compressor for bass? I want more punch and tightness in my sound and more volume balance between notes/strings

    Thanks for the help, in advance...
