I've heard from a few guys that this unit works very well for bass.Anyone here use it?
hey, I am curious too, about both the super comp & dyna comp for bass... hope someone reply soon!
I ended up getting the Behringer MDX 2600 Composer ProXL for $97 at Guitar Center.?It works very nicely.
As many of us, I had some difficulties to find someone who could give me some good advice upon the MXR dyna/super comp.
Finally, I had the chance to try one at my local store, so I can now answer your (my!) question: the MXR Super Comp works well with a bass, indeed.
Otherwise it is not really "transparent", it adds a real nice "punch" to your sound, after spending some time on adjusting the levels: full output, attack at 2 o'clock and sensitivity at 11 o'clock. Then you have to revalue your EQ settings, but after some time, I personnaly found the sound I was seachin' for.
I use it with a P-bass/Ampeg amp and some pedals including Muffs and PolyChorus: well, I finally reached that great "Last Splash"/Kim Deal tone.
Hope it will help anyone wonderin' if the MXR stuff works well on bass as I used to...
I used my Super comp today, with the same settings...great results! Surprisingly good on Bass.
check out bongomania's reviews on compressors.
Look at the OP date!

I suppose I have to try out a Supercomp...
It won't be a "winner", IMO. It was my second compressor, and while I liked it better than the CS-3, I wouldn't consider it bass-friendly beyond the mild settings.
When boy, when...?
zombie thread revival.
Want to hear more.
this thrad may have been before the mxr bass compressor. duncan has a cool bass compressor and ebs.
Yeah, the MXR Bass Compressor is a fairly new pedal. Between the Super Comp and the new Bass Compressor, it's a no-contest scenario; the Super Comp just doesn't compare.
Someone else asked about the Super Comp vs. the Bass Comp recently. I've used both, and my comparison (FWIW) is in this thread.
