Maxon CP-101 Compressor

Compressor

The Japanese company Maxon has been around for a long time, although it was never really known to us. That's because Maxon was always close to Ibanez, and the effect pedals were mostly developed for Ibanez or sold under this name in the rest of the world. Since then, word has got around that the legendary Tubescreamer TS808 actually comes from Maxon, and in the wake of the retro-boom, Maxon is now bringing all its old gems back onto the market.

The CP-101 Compressor is a good old school compressor and delivers a clean, warm compression which, depending on the setting, lends the sound more clarity or power, or even longer sustain. Ideal for adding clean sounds or smoothening a distorted sound and giving it infinite sustain without sinking into chaos!

  • Powerful compression
  • Soft vintage character
  • Low noise level
  • Controls for sustain and level
  • For electric bass, electric guitar or semi-acoustic guitar
  • Power supply unit optional, available at 409939

The only pedal I have 2 of

Stevo101, 06.06.2017
Got this on my main, and mini board. I've not used too many compressors, but this is the best I've found, and perfect for my rig. I think they marketed this as the compressor for those that don't like compressors... ?? whatever !!... it works for me. I should say that for the most part, I use this on lowest settings at unity (and always on), and it really does just help tighten things up on whatever song / style. Useful on higher settings also if needed, but I've never taken it above 12. A genuine recommendation!... but know what you're after before you buy, as this is all about feel rather han tone.

Great for low output guitars

15.12.2014
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.
