    Hello Guys and Gals. I thought I'd pick the experienced minds of the JEMsite with this little question of mine. Currently in my rig is a TC Electronic G-Major 2, as well as a dbx 266XL Compressor/Gate. As it stands, I only use the compressor on my cleans, and the gate on the dirty sounds (just...

    Selling my MXR Dyna Comp from the early 80s. A little about it below.. It has the RCA ca3080 op amp that makes the old Ross's and the current script reissues so nice sounding. It also has case mounted jacks and switch as compared to PCB mounted. In short, it is the guts of an original script...

    I'm running through an orange TH30 combo and Orange Jim Root 2X12 closed cab. I bought a pigtronix philosophers tone about a year ago. Figured it would be a nice boost for solos and help give it a better sound. I honestly can't figure out how to make it work for me. Thinking about selling it...

    Ok, so in my normal set up I have a boss GT-10 going into a Laney amp 4 cable method. I use the Laney for the distortion and the GT-10 really only for modulations and delays. I use a couple of guitars live and am having problems keeping the clean and dirty volumes matched as I change from one...

    I just bought all this stuff and it's too much for my situation (just had a baby, not gigging). Decided to work with mfx+pc till he's older. Also need to fund GAS. All are new or mint, with the exception of some superficial scratches on the side of the main squeeze. TC Electronics Nova Drive...

    Hey gear heads, I'm building one of these beasts in my "mad scientist lab" aka my basement workshop. Anyone had any experience with the DRIP opto's? Have you heard them in action? I'm likely a few weeks away from getting to the finish line so it'll be a bit before I can fire this thing up...

    Hey guys, I just snagged this awesome new compressor form Henretta Engineering. It's called the Orange Whip, and it's tiny! It's a very cool design similar to the Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer. Most importantly, it sounds killer! I never really use compressors much, but this one will definitely...

    Have any of you had any experience with the Maxon CP-101 compressor? I just received one and was trying to integrate it into my pedal board. If I do anything other than hitting a single note, the pedal distorts. It is as if the DiMarzio's in any of my Ibanez guitars (JEM7V, JEM77V, JS1200)...

    For trade is my modified Vox Satchurator. This pedal has been modded by Pedalmods UK (very highly rated and well reviewed) to include 2 toggle switches. The first changes the nature of the gain to a thicker, more open type of aggressive crunch with added volume. This setting is NUTS, really...

    Compressor. Selling as the pedal adds quite a bit of grit to the signal, which I thought was a mistake, but apparently it's supposed to do that so I suppose it's just not my cup of tea. See here for details http://www.musicradar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40302 It's made in Japan if that makes...

    Right. I've been trying to find a decent compressor, for up to £50, in my quest for sustain. I want something quite transparent. The MXR 102 and 132 look quite tasty. Anyone got any views/suggestions?

    Are most people who use a compressor (using with overdrive) putting it before their main overdrive pedal or directly after it? Thx Kev
