And yes I'm fully aware of the absolutely remarkable Ovni Labs resource... So here's my question - I already have an "effecty" compressor on my board that I love, but I'd like to add a more studio-style one to the arsenal for the fast, punchy and clean attack that tends to work well with dynamic finger style play. I've owned the Joe Meek and it was great, but a hair soupy sounding to my ears. The Demeter Compulator Pro had a great tone too, but it was too easy to overdrive. After much research and reflection it seems like an FEA DE-CL would be a good choice for me, but looking at a 6-month waiting list and the speed in which the used ones disappear that's kind of a bummer option. I guess the next best choice for this genre of pedal would be the Empress or Diamond. Eh... I tried to convince myself of the 3 Leaf Audio Pwnzor because I just love the build quality of that shop, but I suspect that's not what I'm looking for. Am I on the right track? Clean, finger style players, what successes have you come across in your compression experiments?
