Good compressor pedal:

Better compressor pedal:

Spectacular compressor pedal:

Any of them will serve you well, but the EBS is truly fantastic. I've heard equally good things about the Markbass Compressore pedal.

^ Am the only one unimpressed by EBS pedals? They aren't even true bypass.

I'm the same boat as TS but I've heard the best is the Aphex Punch Factory?

Edit: Which are the more subtle Compressors rather than squeezers?

Hmmm im tore between the Boss and the EHX, I like the distorsion on the the EHX it saves me having to buy a seperate distorsion.

Only if it's good distortion. You get what you pay for.

apparantly the metaphors is catastrophically awful, I'd avoid (and I did).

Okay guys, I have a confession to make. Not really a confession since it's something that's been bugging me for awhile but I've always been in denial about it.

**** you gilly, it's not what you think

You mean the Black Finger? It'd be nice if there was a demo where someone tested it by changing their playing rather than just showing off squeeziness.

Last time I believe information from Basschat...
I still think they're overrated/priced.
