What about an old Dyna Comp?
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

Yeah I am looking into those, just wondering if there are some lesser known brands that have good comps out there I just don't know about.

B.Y.O.C 5-knob ross compressor is amazing, and is $98.

The best compressor you'll get for anywhere up to even like $180

Their compressor's are the simplest. All their builds are idiot proof if you follow the directions, unless you get the analog delay or something, those are pretty complicated.

those are their three compressors, personally I like the last the best. I forgot they still had it actually.

It's got a little octaver effect, and a compressor in one. you select with a three way switch if you want the octaver, octaver + comp, comp

check out the Visual Sound Comp66. I belive its either $120 or $100 on musicians friend. It looks very promising. I've never played a Visual Sound pedal that didnt delivery for its price. Its not as noisy as the dyna comp. not quite as transparent as the Keeley. but for the price its a perfect compromise of both of those pedals.

although IF you can find a vintage dyna comp for a reasonable price then go for that like someone mentioned
