I've been looking through Bongomanias (all hail!) great reviews for a compressor addition to my rig. Still a bit confused, so maybe some of you can chip with your experiences? I have an EBS Multicomp on my "gigging board" but I would like to find something that I can just keep in my gigbag for those gigs where the big board seem a bit overkill. Therefor, I'm looking for a pedal that can run on battery as well, I can just bring a tuner, comp and perhaps a DOD fx10 preamp to a gig. So, why not just a 2nd Multicomp you ask? Yes, that's an option - but I'd just as well like to try something "new" and/or different. Also someting I can use with my "rock board" (EA SuperCollider, IE Cygnet, Rusty Box) to give a different flavour. So, my "criteria": * Not huge footprint. * Clean, but fat, tone. * Must be able to run on battery (9v or 18v). * Pricing is tricky since prices are so different here in Sweden anyway. But 100-250usd perhaps? Some of the contenders I've found are Diamond, FEA Opti-FET, Carl Martin Classic Opto and Mad Professor Forest Green. Not sure if the Diamond runs on battery though? Another that maybe doesn't fit the size req. is the Empress, but that one looks very intriguing....but battery? Anyone care to pitch in?
