Great as a very transparent compressor.
I would like a little more control, specially over the threshold, as it can introduce more noise than expected. I would also like to have a bit more dynamics, event at its lower sustain setting. But, hey, there's something conforting in having just 2 knobs to play with and never get overwhelmed with tweaks...


I does work OK as a booster too.

Biggest disavantage is that it does clip with every pickup other than very low output ones.

Nice

First compression pedal i've owned and as with all compression, less is more. The input signal is nice and transparent and not heavily influenced with the right amount dialled in. Great level from the pedal so can be used as a boost pedal for choruses and solo's. I like to keep it on for certain tracks to give smooth and full guitar sound with out pop out notes. Just be carefull not to dial in too much as it can kill expression of playing and squeeze the life out of your instrument. It is well made and sturdy enough for regular gigging. Also nice and small for the pedal board. Good pedal!

Maxon does not promise too much, with the CP101 you get a smooth compression with vintage character. The sound of my hollowbody is optimized for jazz purposes and with the Strat I get wonderful 70s funk sounds. And with only two control knobs it is pretty easy to use. To quote Maxon: "The perfect compressor for players who hate using compressors". That is true.

I need no other compressor...
