So the time has come for me to finally take the plunge into compressors. These are the three that have caught my eye (or ears?). I've read reviews on ovnilab.com but I'd still like the opinions of those who lurk the effects forum. As I'm on my quest for my first compressor I'm also trying to resist the urge to buy some other effects that I desperately want but I think it's time for something new. Btw, I personally haven't used any of these, but really like what I hear. I've narrowed it down to these three. The MXR seems to be the most popular here on TB, and I've often bought pedals based on TB recommendations and widespread use on the PYPB threads without trying it beforehand, so I'm confident that the MXR wouldn't be a waste of money and a useless little aluminum box, also, I've liked the demos I've seen on YouTube. I think this video would make anyone want a CS-2. Absolutely love those harmonics! (plus Juan really knows his effects) And finally the Analogman Bi-Comp, the ovnilab review is quite disappointing and kinda turns me off this one, there's also no decent bass demos on YouTube (at least that I can find) but it is a two-for-one, which I like. On the other hand, Tony Levin uses one, and he uses compression pretty heavily, he's also got a pretty awesome tone although he also uses a RetroSpec Squeezebox prototype. (but I know compression isn't his whole sound, plus I'm no Tony Levin) It was actually the only comp he used for awhile when his Squeezebox wasn't working. Price isn't an issue, but I would prefer to not spend $250-$300 on a brand new Bi-Comp unless I know it's what I want, they don't come up here in the classifieds often (if ever) and I'd rather not buy anything from eBay. I'm completely stuck on which to pick, I'd say I'm more likely to buy the MXR because I'm sure I can find probably at least two or three for sale in the classifieds. I'll probably eventually buy all three based on my history of accumulating pedals, but just one for now. I'm also open for you to make your own recommendations.
