    I'm looking to upgrade my ghetto DOD bass compressor and I'm wondering of these two which would you choose and why, or do you have another suggestion for under 80 dollars?

    between the two, I'd recommend the Digitech. My experiences with the Tech21 had the unit giving a lot of hiss. I found the Digitech quieter and more versatile - I like having multiband compression.

    The best pedal compressor for my needs is the EBS MultiComp, but that's way outside your price range.

    hey davidwilson, have your tried the Demeter Compulator? I'm wondering how that sounds vs. the Multicomp.

    no. Demeter stuff is great from my experiences, so I'm sure the compulator is great too. But I love the multicomp, and have no desire to use / try anything else.
