    I've searched all the compressor threads and have yet to come up with some conclusive ideas of these 2 pedals. Generally good reviews from fellow TB'ers though :)

    Can anyone rate /10 these pedals in terms of:
    1) Transparency (when 'on')
    2) Range of sound settings

    Thanks!~ :)

    That's pretty much the way it is. But you can use it as a DI as well (that's what I'm gonna do)

    Mr Squishy:

    Very transparent
    Decent range of sounds, but not huge.

    Sounds fantastic though!

    I'm starting to get the picture :)

    Ok erm...i may be pushing it but I got a few more questions, and i'd really appreciate any useful comment:

    1) If both the Squishy and PF are pretty much in the 'transparent class' among compressors, is there yet another compressor thats heads and shoulders over these 2 in the same department?

    2) I'm currently running a Boss Limiter Enhancer and a MIJ-made Compressor Sustainer-2 (yes i know)... The LMB-3 works just fine as a limiter and for adding a nice 'new-string' sparkle to all my basses. But the CS-2 is kinda noisy at most settings. But i thought of getting it for 2 reasons: to enhance fretless emulation and to get a nice edgy attack (exagerated as some put it) when slapping or doing ghost noted grooves. Can anyone name a pedal compressor which does that at a better signal-noise ratio?

    THANKS! :bag:
