EBS MultiComp SE

Effect Pedal for Electric Bass

The Swedish company EBS has existed since 1988. It caters primarily to the needs of bass players, and since the staff is rumoured to consist of bass players themselves, it is not surprising that products are developed to leave the hearts of bassists excited.

Especially with regard to effects devices, bass players were most often neglected. A major problem has always been the fact that most effects deteriorate the frequencies precisely in the range that is crucial for proper bass guitar sound, namely in the low frequencies. So it is of little surprise, that the EBS-effects are really unproblematic in that area and otherwise have a lot of really interesting features to offer as well.

Great comp!

Tauzieher, 13.02.2014
This is one of these compressors you'll usually only notice once you turn them off. I mostly use it to even out peaks and to get a more consistent volume level between playing with a pick, playing with fingers, slapping and tapping. But with its 3 different modes, it can serve other purposes just as well.
The mode switch lets you choose between "Tubesim", "MB" (= MultiBand, can be further adjusted with 2 trim pots on the inside) and "Normal" modes. I personally never really used the "Normal" mode, though.
In "Tubesim" mode, you get really nice, "organic" compression with a hint of dirty, tube-like warmth. Absolutely lovely when you play an otherwise very clean setup.
I, however, tend to use a very "dirty" setup with several drive pedals, therefore I like to use the "MB" mode. This gives you a very clean, almost sterile compression, where the high and the low band are being compressed separately. This also means, that you can dial up the compression quite a bit further without it becoming "too much". I like to run "Comp/Limit" at about 12 o'clock and makeup "Gain" at about 3 o'clock, the latter giving my drive pedals just a hint of boost that complements them really well.
In my opinion, engaging the "Active"/"Passive" knob on the side (regardless of what kind of bass you're using) pretty much always improves the sound, otherwise it tends to get rather "clanky". But maybe that's just me and the way I play and/or my settings, you'll have to check that out and decide for yourself.
As for features and handling, I love the simplicity that comes with the layout, set and forget. I never even touched the controls on the inside because the MultiBand mode sounded "right" from the start. I sometimes wish I had all the controls a studio compressor offers but then again, I probably don't even need those anyway.
Like all EBS pedals, this thing is built like a tank, the pots have just the right amount of resistance when turning them and the switch... well, it works just fine, not much to say about it.
