I need a compressor for playing live so I can switch between slap and fingerstyle smoother but don't know what to get. Any ideas? I was considering a Kneely pedal (transistor) or a Carvin rack mount (optical), but I don't know what I'm talking about.

As far as i know the only liquor that should not be stored after opened is wine, and even then it's mainly the french one. American wine usually has conservatives in it to stop this.

When I'm playing fast fingerstyle where I'm barely touching the strings then switch to slapping the hell out of the strings, it is very obnoxious. I don't know how else to pull it off.

The EBS Multicomp is a tasty compressor in a pedal, it sounds nice, but you may want a rackmount compressor...

Sorry, but because you listen to Tool doesn't mean you're intelligent.

I hear really good things about dbx's compressors. I don't have the slightest idea which one to recommend though....
Gear:

Fender Mexi Fat Strat
2005 Taylor 614ce


Fender MIM J-Bass Fretless

Well, I wouldn't recommend the dbx 266XL. A few days ago, I plugged straight into the amp, and my tone was better by a long-shot. With the compressor plugged, it sounded as if the tone knob was at 0.

I was baffled...

Analog Man is better then Keeley, they're both great and you can't go wrong with either, but Analog Man makes the best compressors money can buy.
