    Bass compression is a subtle tool/effect that is easily misunderstood, misused, and underrated. After lots of time debating the hundreds of compressors out there, I decided on this one for 4 things:

    1) Functionality – the kind of controls that you get here aren’t usually found at this price. The LED metering is great and lets you know how much input to dial in, I only know of a couple other that do this, and they go for $250+.
    2) Ease of use – the manual gets you up and running in minutes, but patience and more use will allow me to fully utilize this effect
    3) Sound – fattens my tone like a compressor should, but will also work as a limiter when the situation calls for it.
    4) Reliability in the manufacturer – I’ve heard about a number of these not turning on, not responding to inputs, hissing, etc. For my money, I wanted peace of mind in a trusted brand like MXR.

    P.S. While the manual won’t tell you, this pedal will also accept higher voltages, and I run mine through my 18V voodoo. I’l put a picture up soon.

    This compressor has a good spread of features and LED metering lights. As far as I’m concerned that right there makes it easily one of the best pedal compressors on the market.

    This is especially easy to use for those new to compression. The manual helps you get decent settings within 10 minutes. The metering lights let you know when the compression is kicking in and how much. Simple.

    All this plus the build quality of an MXR pedal and their solid reputation for customer service.

    This is amazing device! Finaly my bass sound is equal even when I play using different strings. Slapping and popping very fat and bright.
