- The classic Dyna Comp compressor sound re-tuned to retain the low end, dynamics, and transparency that bass players require familiar output and sensitivity controls set volume level and the length of sustain includes Dunlop ECB003 9-volt AC adapter
Details: The dyna Comp bass compressor delivers the most iconic compression sound in music history, tweaked and tuned just for bass players. Built around the classic CA3080 “metal can” integrated circuit for its quiet operation, superior transparency, and increased dynamic range, this pedal comes with all the controls you need to shape that sweet dyna Comp swish in no time at all. The standard dyna Comp compressors tend to SQUASH the dynamics of a bass signal, depriving bass players of the transparency required to let the low end fundamental stand out. The MXR team equipped this pedal to overcome both challenges with a clean control that adds in your unaffected signal to maintain low end integrity and a tone control that adjusts the upper midrange to retain tonal dynamics. Familiar output and sensitivity controls set volume level and the length of sustain, while the attack switch toggles between a slow vintage style attack time and a fast modern style attack time that instantly adds punch and clarity. And you know what? It all comes in an MXR Mini housing, so making room for it on your pedalboard will be a cinch.
Needless to adjust it to death, it gives excellent out-of-the-box compression.
