Hey all, long time reader, first time poster. I've watched hours of demos, read every ovnilab review multiple times. Now I turn to personal experience. Most of the time I'm playing heavy rock, death metal and metalcore. I play fingerstyle, and sometimes playing 16th notes I'll lose attack velocity that I want to make up for a more consistent sound. I know the answer is I should just practice more but I'm still looking for a little help on top I first used the Boss CS-3: noisy and dip-swelled too easily. Then Keeley Bassist: I never felt like it was doing nearly enough. Now Maxon CP9 Pro+: much nicer, but same issue, it just feels like it's not doing enough. The three im chasing my tail on: Darkglass Hyperluminal vs MXR Studio/Bass vs Boss BC-1x. I definitely want full metering display. The Origin Cali76 CB is also heavy on my mind, but I don't like that it's $100 more and doesn't have a full meter display. I'm willing to be persuaded toward it though.
