    Does anyone know: Is the “Thrust” compressor in the TC Electronics amp heads the same one-knob compressor as the TC Electronics Spectracomp?
    The descriptions of how they both function seem very similar (algorithms etc).

    Unfortunately not! The Thrust compressor is very basic and "tube compressor" like. It sounds okay but has its limits and is not as flexible as the Spectracomp. (I own the BQ500 amp).

    I am a new Spectracomp owner and can say there are a plethora of comp settings available on the TC site. Works like a charm.
