    i just got a used dbx project 1 262 compressor and project 1 242 parametric eq from e-bay and got to use them today with my demeter 201
    overall they seem very nice, i've used the 262 before at my pal's house but never used the 242
    both items are discontinued and are not exactly "top of the line" but they seem not to degrade my tone
    both have bypass switches which is nice
    the compressor is a dbx compressor - not much to say
    the eq is very nice - it definitely helps out with the limited eq on the 201
    overall not to bad for a combined price of $140 :D
