i have a love and hate thing with my Keeley Bassist and my conclusion is this.
Did you ever stop and wonder how your compressor must feel about you?
What in particular is the issue?
I like compressors so much I am currently using two in series.
You realize that this is your next step...
its just not for me
Just go with it. When you hate it, don't use it. When you love it, use it.
There's no rule that says you have to use a compressor or any other pedal all of the time. I think you'll find that a lot of other people have a love/hate relationship with things in music.
OP should be more specific.
When do you like it?
When do you dislike it? ...strongly dislike it?
I have it and really like it. I like the simplicity of 3 knobs, and it does what I expect it to do.
A lot of TBers have it and seem to like it.
PS: your thread title could be less vague and more specific.
This again? Jesus sufferin' Christ...
The issue is, on my gigs at home I use a MarkBass Jeff Berlin 151p combo, at church I use a older model SWR head and a SWR 410 cab. On both amps I can turn off the Keeley and it sounds know different then using my EQ pedal. Which is I know your not going to like it but a Boss GEB-7. I have run the bassist at 12 o'clock and turn tell the red light blinks once in a while. I didn't use them both at the same time, but it sounds a little better if i do. when i say smooth i want a deep bass sound clean, but not muddy. MY CAPS ARE STUCK AGAIN, I MET WILLY NELSON BASS PLAYER AT GUITAR CENTER. WE TALKED A LITTLE WHILE I ASKED WHAT HE USED, HE SAID IN THE STUDIO A RACK COMPRESSOR. he also said he has never found a compressor pedal he liked. he told me to just get a decent eq.
Indeed. I could write a dissertation on the different personalities of classic compressors but I'll spare you. That said, I seldom use a compressor in a "bass-instrument-to-amp-or-inserted-on-bass-amplifier" application of one. That's just me though.
I hate all I pedals, whenever I think that I can sell them all and get another bass.
