Which of the MXR dyna comp vs Malekko analog compressor sounds thicker or generally better?

Anyone have tried these?

Shoegaze?
Get a 3630, you want more options.

Between the two, the malekko.

Though, what kinda sound do you want to achieve with the help of a compressor?
'cause sounding "thick" is not an inherent propriety of a compressor, you can achieve that with any half decent compressor that has the controls you need.

Compressors in guitar pedals though have two problems - the knobs on them are half missing and the other half is mislabeled, so if you need something reeeally simple and set-it-keep-it a guitar pedal may be the thing for you.

If you play shoegaze though you do want the options, so you want a proper compressor.
Do yourself a favor and get a proper compressor.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

If it's your first time getting a compressor, you wont have an idea of what you really want at first...The MXR Dyna Comp or the Boss CS2/3 is a good place to start...from learning how those pedals react with your playing you'll soon realise what is it you want with a compressor and look to upgrade...unless of course the Dyna Comp or CS2/3 is your thing.

the dyna comp is the worst pedals i have ever owned. loud. didn't even seem musical. good thing i only paid $30 for it. sold it for probably the same.

may sound harsh.

i would go malekko of the two.

what is your price limit? the barber models sounds decent in videos, but i think most would say that diamond makes the best, but it comes with a price tag.

I have an EHX Soul Preacher compressor.

I quite like it, probably not the greatest on the market but is affordable and easy to use. Doesnt feed back as much as the CS-3 in my experience
