Compressor and Sustainer

For all types of devices there are some classics which are used repeatedly over decades and over the time reach genuine cult status. When it comes to compressors for guitar and bass, one effect is necessary to be mentioned, and that is clearly the MXR Dynacomp. As often as this device has been used in professional and already legendary recordings, it is actually unnecessary to say more.

Remarkable is that the Dynacomp only needs two knobs! The sensitivity knob is used to set the compression threshold, the final volume is then determined with the output knob. And attack, ratio, release, etc.? The knobs that in other cases take the user hours of puzzling and trying? The MXR Dynacomp simply does not need more knobs, because everything is set so guitars and basses sound compact and crisp. Of course you can also extend the sustain significantly with more extreme settings; what else do you need?

Small box, Big effect
Hebb 26.04.2021
A compressor isn't the first pedal you'd think of or look for when buying more pedals. I can only talk from my own experience and that was exactly what i was thinking.

For that "large" (compared to size and features) amount of money you could get a relatively good distortion pedal or almost a delay pedal. And i fell for that trap multiple times and I underestimated the affect a comp-pedal can bring.

Now knowing the effect it has to the tone i couldn't be more pleased, i have it right next to my guitar in the pedal chain and sometimes the Dyna comp is the only thing needed to get some amazing tones out of a Vox AC-15. I usually have the sens around 9 o'clock and then the output relatively low (to allow my amp to be cranked up). And it's a dramatic difference between having it turned on and off.

There is only one word to describe the tone when turned on - Smooth.
So should you buy it? Yes but don't prioritize it over ex Amps and the most basic effect pedals - of course i'd choose my delay pedal over the dynacomp and that's not strange.

The point i'm trying to express is that the dynacomp "boosts" the overall tone and for it to boost the tone you need to have a tone.
So if you want to advance your sound quality, then this little red thing is for you - solid and characteristic!

t
great compressor
thibze 31.07.2019
I've been playing with this comp for roughly 6 years with mostly strats and jaguars (reggae, groove and post-rock)

This pedal brings an amazing percussive sound and warm sounding compression overall

On the other hand, the noise brought by this comp is LOUD - I strongly recommend the use of a well tuned noise gate for any clean recording of subtle solos.

I love to play this comp along with overdrive or distortion pedals (i.e Fulltone's OCD)

Simple and amazing
BillyRaf 30.09.2020
Killer sound for both guitar and bass. I mostly use it for bluesy situations with my PRS and I really love how easy it is to achieve that chicken-picking sound with only a few buttons. Love and definitely recommend it!

Nice pedal, but with some drawbacks
Wilbury 29.04.2017
Generally, I like this little pedal very much. It really does the job it is supposed to do. On the negative side, however, is the fact that there is no attack pot to play with. Also, the pedal adds quite a noticeable amount of "white noise" to the signal, although I believe the same applies to rival models. For example, I remember having a Boss compressor that seemed to produce a comparable level of noise.
