Long long time ago I used to play with compressor pedal all the time,it was always on ….after years I let it go!
It was so much better without it…the dynamic was back ,one less pedal to carry .
Now I’ve decided to get one,my mistake long time ago was leave it on all the time !
Compressor is a good pedal if you know when and how much to use it.
Basically compressor balanced your vol ,keeps all notes in the same level (or about the same depend how you set it)
Great for Funk ,or any other parts which you need to be right there in the mix.
But if you need more dynamic compressor might not be the right effect to use.
Few things you need to consider if you buying a compressor know how to use it .understand the knobs and what they do to the sound.
Make sure the pedal doesn’t change your original tone so if you turn is off and on your sound EQ is the same.
For me less button which means less options on pedals are better ! if the pedal has a good sound you don’t need to tweak it for hours.
Prefer not to mention the names of the compressors here but if you need help picking the right one just email me back!
