Added punch / nice and consistent

This is my first compressor pedal, but I know it's a good one. The first time I brought it to rehearsal my drummer goes "is it just me, or do we sound way tighter?" I am so used to playing without compression that I just put a touch of it in my mix, but it improves the overall sound that much. You can't really tell when you're playing alone, but it improves the overall sound of your group. My sales engineer Dustin makes this stuff really quick and easy. I emailed him and let him know I'd like to get the pedal before the weekend, and he rushed to get it on the shipment before 5:00pm. It was on my doorstep two mornings later. Sweetwater is my go-to.

Awesome Compressor

Amazing transparent compressor, will make your bass sit better in the mix either in a live situation or in studio. Setting the Treshold and Ratio knobs appropiately will bring a more consistent tone, ballancing all notes and a tighter low-end. Solid construction with top quality materials and good looking, does not add any undesired noise to the signal at all. Top-mounted jacks are a plus and fits really well in any pedalboard. Definetly one of the best bass compressors out there.

Amazing little unit

If you're in the market for a bass compressor, this is the one. It is a high-quality, well-made box that will really add punch and smooth out your sound. I just found my ideal setting and left it, but you really have a wide palette of options with these controls. Really makes a difference, especially with a 5-string--well worth it. Shout-out to James Shilliday for his unflagging sales assistance!

Best Compresor!!

Such a clean crisp sound to it. I love the small boost it gaves to your bass once you turn the pedal on. Ive own many compressors but I finally found my one!

Compression without Compromise

This is my 3rd compressor since August of 2015, and I finally found the right one. This doesn't color my tone so I get wonderfully even compression without any alteration to the sound. Its four controls are subtle and simple, and it appears built to last. Daisy chains off my One Spot just fine. Even though I spent as much on this one pedal as the other two compressors put together, it was well worth the price.
