Just got mine in yesterday. This thing is FANTASTIC. I've owned a Keeley and a BJFE PGC. It is IMMENSELY quieter than the Keeley (even with fuzzes and ODs on) and much more of an "effect" than the PGC (which is kind of what I need it to be for the country type thing and EJ spanky thing I do). Wish it had a 9 volt jack though... Oh well. Looks like I'll be using one of those 1Spot battery clips. Enjoy it.
Jeorge Tripps is just blowing my mind at Dunlop. The Carbon Copy, the CS Dyna Comp, the Hendrix Fuzz... I haven't even tried any of the new WH stuff. I can't wait to see what else comes out of that factory.
Well, it arrived and I picked it up this past Saturday (along with a Supa-Trem that I couldn't stop myself from picking up). I had no idea how much I would like it! The versatility of it, how you can dial in everything from mild sustain enhancement to full-on squishy goodness...Where has this been all my life. Output makes it easy to match volume level and little to no tone alteration. Hell, if it does change the tone some it's for the best! If you're interested at all in one of these, do yourself a favor and get it now!
All I need to do now is sit down with my drives and figure out where it goes in the chain. Running an old Rat and a Little Big Muff--any suggestions?
For me, the DC RI works best directly connected to my pickups - first in line on the board. This way it responds directly to your touch and it also limits the potential noise issues with comps.
The DC RI is, for me/my rig, the best compressor ever. It's on all the time, adding sustain and addictive tonal characteristics to my Strats/Teles. For me, 2nd place goes to a modded CS3 - all else (and most of what's discussed here) just doesn't compare.
