Which compressor is better?...

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Bass Kebap, Feb 12, 2006.


  1. I'm thinking of getting a compressor pedal. I have these on my mind:
    Electro-Harmonix White Finger
    TC Electronics Vintage Bass Comp
    Boss Comp Sustainer CS-3

    Which one should i get? Any other better compressor pedals? Thanks.:help:

    What sound or result do you want from the compressor? What styles of music do you play?
     
  3. I play all kinds of music, generally rock, funk, pop and blues.
    I just got a fretless and its sustain doesn't fulfill my requierments. And I want well rounded slaps and pops...I want a good compressor which I can use in long term :help:

    Check out the Punch Factory by Aphex. Great pedal for comp.

    I just purchased a Carl Martin and its awesome, great controls and very transparent. Any where from hard comp to light limiting. I love it. Stay away from Boss Comp, in my opinion, its not good for bass at all.
