    That link will lead you to everything you need to know and has already been asked many times. Have fun with the research!

    Fixt.

    But, in fairness, the search function in TB can lead to a lot of false hits. And not everyone's Google-fu is strong.
     
  5. For as long as I've been here, I've wondered about a search engine on a bass forum that won't recognize the word 'bass.'

    And so I can't be accused of derailing the thread's original intent...the early BBE Opto Stomp (the non-moustache/monocle version) is an incredible value and well worth looking for.

    Actually I think there is a link in the one big sticky thread, but that sticky is kinda hard to read and use.

    I know right!!! I must have seen the link to bongos page posted a hundred times on talkbass.. surely were to read about good compressors would have sunk into the talkbass members minds!

    Program the site to respond to posts with 'compressor' in the title, to prompt the user: "This new thread appears to be about compressors. Have you read <bongo's site> to see if that answers your questions first?"
