I'm looking for a compression pedal, preferrably not a rackmount because I don't have a rack.. but is there a cheapish pedal that does the job and doesn't suck out tone?

There are different types of compression. Before you go out to buy one you should read up about it and decide which type of compression and which brand offers you what you want.

Here is a guide to compression and it goes pretty in depth into the different types:
