First of all, let me start by saying that I am completely new to compressors. I had always planned on getting one, as I love the nice touch it adds to the sound of alot of guys whose tone i like. so...I got my mini bi-comp yesterday, and while I can get some good sounds out of it, its not exactly what I had imagined it as (probably because, like I said, I am new to compressors!). I play a les paul studio, and single notes sound pretty good, although at times they sound distorted at first, and then sound better if thats possible. Also, I tend to get a pretty "muffled" sound Id say when playing chords. I turned the attack all the way up as Ive heard this helps with humbuckers, but still, if I hit a chord hard, it becomes sort of blanketed and almost hard to hear. I read all kinds of reviews on the Barber Tone Press tonight on a whim, and it seemed like every review I read was speaking right to me. They explained my problems with the "classic compressor sound" almost exactly, and said that the Barber Tone Press is perfect for this type of thing. So anyway, should I look into this? Any opinions? Thanks guys.
