    Can anyone tell me how well the compressor in the BAM works?

    Thanks. :)

    I use the compressor on my BAM on a couple of patches, and I will kick it in when I solo. Nothing special, it's a decent, musical sounding compressor.

    One knob adjusts the amount of compression, they call it 'Squeeze'. The other sets the overall level.

    Thanks, embel.
    Sounds like it should suffice.

    By the way, is yours loud enough for you? That's one thing that I'm concerned with, in getting one, yet.

    My current rig's 475w and I have a 4x10, which I usually turn to around 5-6 for my postgain and leave on 5 for my pregain.

    Mine is plenty loud. I have never had my master volume above 2.5.
