Best bass compressor I've tried, short of studio recording equipment
By DavReso
I found that guitar compressors have not worked very well for my bass rig. Compared to many (expensive) name brand versions, this box can be left on all of the time, and tweaked for a variety of basses. This is the only compressor I've found that works effectively with my flat wound bass- (Fender Jazz, Dimarzio 123 neck pu, Nordie bridge pu, La Bella Flats) and does not alter the tone. It is a very transparent box, and in my opinion beats out many boutique compressors.
