    Barber Tone Press is very popular here. Right now I'm really loving my Maxon CP101- very transparent, minimal noise, doesn't mess w/ my pick attack, not a ton of squash but more than enough for my needs. What kind of music do you play? Haven't heard anything about the SP yet...

    I just got the Maxon CP9 Pro+ compressor, which uses the dbx compression circuit, and it's the best compressor pedal I've tried or heard. Very much like a studio compressor. It has Threshold & Ratio controls, which most other pedals don't. Highly recommended.

    awesome! another maxon cp101 fan - i'm baffled as to why more TGP'ers don't know, try or use this compressor. i love mine and have used it for a few years now.

    i tried a tone press and thought it sounded great. BUT, i thought it dulled the pick attack too much (even with the original signal blended all the way in) compared to the cp101.

    my vote is for the cp101. it's a great, great compressor.

    Nice- a friend recommended the Maxon to me, and it's exactly what I wanted in a comp. I forget that it's on until I turn it off, doesn't sound like an "effect" as many comps do- just a natural extension of my tone :BEER

    If you guys liked the CP101, you guys should definitely check out the CP9 Pro+ when you have a chance (and the funds :p). It's like the CP101 taken up another notch in terms of flexibility and natural feel. If you ever see one on ebay for a good price, definitely check it out. I'm keeping mine, sorry.

    +1! I just got near new one off eBay for $140 and my buddy got one at NAMM from Godlyke (distr) for $150!

    Being able to set the Threshold & Ratio is indispensable, especially if you know how to use studio based compressors. Plus, it's an incredible clean boost.

    I had the Nano Soul Preacher and liked it, but took it back. It just did not have the mojo of the trusty old Boss CS-3, which just had a smoother and at the same time, puchier sound.
