    which one is better?? the ibanez BP10 or the Bass Compactor?. i can get both pedals for about forty bucks each.

    i know i should be the judge but i just want your general opinions on these 2.

    The BP10 is an awesome pedal compressor. I had one once, but I gave it to an ungrateful basturd as a favor because he needed it. I regret it. Never tried the Compactor, but I'd get the BP10 because they're no longer made. I'm sure the Compactor will be made for years to come so you could always get one of those later.

    I've never tried the BP10.

    The Bass Compactor was a big deception.
    I usually love SanSamp products, but this one is far beyond their usual level.
    It doesn't make your sound shine and it pumps like a texan derick once you pass 12 o'clock on settings.

    As far as cheap compressors go, I think the Digitech Bass Squeeze is the best you can get for the money.
