MXR Custom Comp Compressor Pedal at a Glance:
Old and new combine to give you a high-performance compressor
MXR's Custom Shop designed the Custom Comp compressor to be a blend of the best aspects of vintage and modern technology. The legendary CA3080 "metal can" IC is used in the Custom Comp to give you an extended dynamic range and tonal transparency. There are also RF suppression components in the Custom Comp to ensure you have interference-free operation.
Internal controls for custom operation
The MXR Custom Comp features two internal controls that allow you to tweak the attack and frequency response to your liking. You don't have to mod this pedal to get your perfect settings, just pop it open and adjust.
True-bypass design for pure tone
When not in use, the MXR Custom Comp's true bypass design takes it completely out of your signal chain. It doesn't run your signal through the entire pedal, but directly from the input to the output. This keeps your signal pure, and your precious tone unaffected. The Custom Comp is awesome even when it is turned off!

Very nice compressor
by jason lund from Sioux Falls, SDI bought this compressor to add some sustain to tapped parts and lend a more studio quality sound to my home setup. It works fantastic for that- I'm easily able to get a great compressed solo tone at ... read more [+]lower volume levels and without cooking my tubes. It is extremely transparent and does not color my distortion or clean tones at all. It does a great job of improving note definition with heavy distortion, and does a good job of evening out clean tones as well. In my opinion, this is the compressor to get if you already like your tone and just want to improve sound quality. I tested a Keeley 4 knob for awhile before deciding on the MXR because the sound quality is just as good for half the price. The only advantage to the Keeley is all 4 knobs are on top, while the MXR has two internal pots- that's the only reason I gave it 4.5 instead of a perfect score. close [-]
