I highly recommend the diamond bass comp, simple and easy to use.

The origin effects cali76 is also getting great reviews for guitar and bass.

The empress compressor is nice, but could be seen has harder to use than the other two.

I like the MXR M87 Bass Compressor. Its very fast attack/release capable, meant to be like the 1176 compressors. It has control over many parameters, is simple to use, and has a nice LED that show the amount of compression being applied. It's worked well for me on both bass and guitar. Very transparent as a 4:1 compressor up to a fairly strong limiter.

It is. If they made a version that was identical except had a guitar centric name and a slightly different color or something, it would probably increase sales on the unit much more. A majority of guitar players probably don't even look at bass compressors when looking for compression.
