i am in need of a compressor for my bass guitar, i primarily play with a punchy mid/low-type pop punk sound. i have been looking at the malekko chorus and the mxr compressor... any ideas? <3
(i know you all play guitars and may not have much advice for us lowly bassists...)
What's your favorite compressor and more importantly why? What separates it from the rest?
These were my ONLY compressors for 35 years!I love my Dyna Comp (picked it up in mint, NIB condition with box and papers for $35) and my CS-2. The DC adds some great color and nice grit at higher output levels, and the CS-2 is able to really squash but somehow not add too much color. I use the CS-2 for guitar and DC for bass, although they both work great for each application.
The Eventide Omnipressor built into the Space pedal.....because it can do what Eventide calls ultimate compression....the volume output is the same regardless of the input signal. So if you play a single note, or strum a chord, you hear them at the same volume.
Of course, not everybody wants this.....but it works for me.
