lookiong for a good compressor in the 150 range? any suggestions?
are they very necessary?
...only you can decide if a compressor is necessary.
i have a barber tone press. now that i have it on my board, it is definitely "necessary"!
and highly recommended.:AOK
Diamond Comp is in that area, if you want an optical type comp
CMATMODS does soem good work in the "used and modded" category in that price range - it's http://www.CMATMODS.com
I use a Pine Green Comp by BJF. It's like $285, and sounds so good I can't imagine ever going back. (Unsolicited testimonial - GRIN)
+1 on the Diamond Compressor
you go compressor before Tim?
that isnt my signal chain, those are just my pedals, they arent in that particular order.
Anyone tried out the Jangle Box? Just curious what everyone thinks of those.
I just got my first real comp. I'd heard the HBE Comp. Retro was good so I went and checked it out. Great sounding pedal...can be subtle or really squishy...and it was $149 CND so you should be well inside your budget. Plus, if you ordered one you'd get to pick from many cool colors.
+1 on the Diamond
yep ... all about the blend knob
Just got the Teese compressor (Musictoyz blowout 79.99).
I've owned the Keeley, Tone Press, MXR and a couple others I can't remember. I'm not going to say the Teese is better than any of those I listed because people like compressors for different effects. I will say though that I think the Teese sounds as good as the others to me and is priced way below also.
Just my 2cents . . . and worth every penny.
Tone press is pretty decent. Aphex Punch Factory also rocks.
I'm going to make a correction to my Teese recommendation after spending all morning with it at higher volume. I find that anything beyond 9 O'clock on the sensitivity is unusable. The notes break up just on the attack and man it sound like crap. I adjusted the pot inside and it helped a little but not enough for me to keep this pedal.
thanks for the update man, i was just about to check that one out but ill keep looking
I like the Aphex Punch Factory. Easy to adjust with only two knobs, and does a nice job of preserving the note attack.
I have the Diamond which is my number one compressor, but the 4 knob Keeley is also on my board and is my number one pedal for leads. I like running both compressors at the same time also.
