Great comp for the price

10.11.2016
I guess you get whatyou pay for and this is somewhat true for this pedal as it can definitely introduce some noise to the signal should you require more volume. Leaving the volume below 40% (not using the boost feature) is perfect and it really doesn't raise the noise floor that much, you will be satisfied. The Attack feature is indeed a nice touch and is very usable, I really like the slower attach option for slapping and fast attack for mellower tones. The sustain is not extreme, just perfect for bass. I am not a fan of the housing or the design itself but it is sturdy enough for gigs and whatnot. I am overall very happy with this pedal, though I would probably use a higher-end model for studio recordings is that is your thing. I would not ask for more in this price range. As for the tone, I really like how it makes my bass a tad bit warmer so I always have it on, and it sounds perfect after drive/fuzz effects too!!

Bass compression for beginners and the tight purse

Robster Dude, 02.01.2018
I needed to get a compressor for my bass to keep the presence within the band samples constant and generally improve the sound quality. Since I was a novice in the field of signal processing on the way and I wanted to avoid buying a universal comp (eg MXR DynaComp), the basspreacher came to me just fine.

I admit it - I was about to send it back because I did not get the result I wanted right away. On the Attack settings Fast and Medium he is absolutely useless for my bass, because my input was too high and turning down Volume was not an option. It started to crack, even with finger plucking.

That's why only Slow Attack was the last chance - and I found it here too. With Sustain adjusted to 10 o'clock and Volume on Dry Signal, I had the ONLY RICH possible option for the device for my bass and I can not play without compression since when the device is off the sound feels too raw and naked.

Conclusion: Definitely a sound enrichment, if one has found his settings and in the price range a strong house number for bassists
