    Looking for a hard, in your face, THUMP type of compression. Which one of these will do the trick? Any suggestions or advice or feelings about these or any other ones?:smug:


    If I go the Bi-Comp route then I will probabaly end up getting the "Mini" instead because of the long wait.

    I did a search but couldnt find a whole lot...so I am asking anyone who has had experience with any of these pedals

    Thanks for your help:D

    IME and IMO neither the Ross clone nor the Armstrong clone do an "in your face THUMP" very well. The Ross is best at adding sustain, while the Juicer gives a squishy mwah. I get awesome thump from my Ibanez UE303B, but I'm not sure what current-production pedal does the trick best. Have you read through all of the reviews in the comp reviews thread?

    I use a Boss CS-3 for thumpy-squish (with a Bass Exciter after it for the even-fuller-effect!). It's not on your list, but they're certainly easy-enough to test-out; just about every music store in the world has one in stock.
