Squeeze It!

I have a Diamond Bass Compressor. Best damn compressor pedal I've ever heard. BUT I needed a smaller good compressor for a smaller dumbed down version of my board, for practice (didn't want to lug around my big predal board). I did my research. Almost went for the Aguilar TLC, but the MXR caught my attention. It basically just sounds better. So with that said...If u r looking for a good Bass Compressor, and want to save space on your pedal board...Look no further. You have it right here ;)

Great compressor

This thing works great. Not much of any color to my tone. Barley any color. I got a p bass with Aguilar hot pickups. Keeps my gk 1001 from clipping all the time. Great for hot pickups and normal pickups

Just Great!

Works perfect! i have two now .. in a two separate rigs .. how much i can tell??

Awesomely Good

By far the best compression pedal I've owned. Like night and day between this and the Ashdown model I was using. Plenty of control for any type of playing style or passive/active basses. Brings out the high notes when slapping it and adds plenty of sustain when you want it. Clear meter in compact rugged case. Also love the Blue 'on' LED. Well worth the money. Can't go wrong with pedal!!!! Can't recommend it enough. Stop debating and purchase it !!!!!!

I use a few elaborate rackmount compressors in my studio to record my bass and searched for a way to bring that same great sound to the stage. When I found the MXR M87 Bass Compressor, my search ended. You get all the control and quality of a rackmount unit in compact pedal form!
