Re: Suggestion for a compressor
yo dude.. i have a boss cs-3.. it all of a sudden wont work with a power source, I will try to get it fixed at my store, but i grabbed a visual sound - route 66 yesterday!!!! omgggg.. it definitely sounds a lot different then the boss.. it is a vintage style compressor, i definitely dont run it with as much compression as the boss.. i use the overdrive side of it has a gain boost on the dirty channel of my fender supersonic 112... so basically..
compressor always on
makes od's sound great on the clean
dirty channel is set to a low-mid gain (srv'ish)
i use another od to give me a half gained lead sound
and i use the od on the 66 for high gain.. sounds wicked..
i should ask, what style are you playing? the setup i am describing is for blues, jazz, fusion, country, pop, rock.. you can shred on it but it isnt a metal sound.. i have a diff setup for my metal band.
