Tc spectracomp and active basses

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by jefflaserfist, Apr 10, 2017.

  1. has anyone used the spectracomp with a G&l l2000 or a musicman stingray? Did the spectracomp have any problems with the hotter signal?

    Not an issue. One great thing about TC pedals is that they accept up to line level input so you basically can't overdrive them.
    cflat, Rich Fiscus and Jonny_Orange like this.

    I'm currently running one with my Fender Steve Bailey Jazz Bass which has an 18 volt pre amp in it and have no issues.

    Experimenting with one now with Fodera and Rob Allens. Behaves fine. Still need to tweak some tone prints though...

    I use it with a couple of active Ibanezes that I have. Works wonderfully with them.
  6. Thanks for the input, i pulled the trigger on one today.
  7. Works fine on both passive and actives for me. I'm really enjoying mine!

    I have it built in to my RH450.
    No issues with my 4 active basses, 9 & 18 Volts.
  9. I have the spectracomp on all the time and I have a L2000 tribute. At the moment I'm using the Muscle Comp TonePrint but not had a single issue with any TonePrints. The only issue I had was totally my own fault; I tried messing with the editor and got a great sound while playing in to my computer, so I thought that's perfect, I don't want to loose that so I turn the single control knob off. At practice this did push something (my guess the make up gain) to much and I got some feedback. Beamed a new TonePrint in and all was good again.
