I am shopping for a compressor and would appreciate some recommendations.
Do you want utility or tone shaping? Mild compression or hard peak limiting?

OG Comp reviews: www.ovnilab.com
BIG second for this recommendation, that site was ridiculously helpful when I was comp shopping, bought a used Carl Martin Classic Opto mainly based on the review there and couldn’t be happier. I was also looking for a cheap Markbass Compressore based on the ovnilab review but got a good deal on the Carl Martin before one came up. But, yeah, there’s some really good information on those links in the previous post. Good luck on the search.
What he said. LOTS of compressors to choose from. Help us narrow the field for you.
Also: studio or live? What's your budget?
I really love my diamond bass compressor, especially if you’re looking for light compression as an always on. Definitely colors your tone, but in such a pleasing way! The tilt eq is also a nice touch
