Top 5 Bass Compressors



compressor, pedals, thomann, top 5, youtube

Compression is one of those things that has become more and more common in popular music over the past 30 years. Some people lament this because they feel it removes the dynamics from natural music (which it does).  However, compression is here to stay, so you better get on board!

Of all the pedals on this video, I would probably get the Spectra Comp for my first compression pedal.  I like to tweek things myself and am next satisfied with the results from presets.  The ability to create my own is very appealing.  Also, the size is great because I don’t have that much room on my pedal board.

But do I ReAlLy NeEd a compression pedal?  If I was gifted one…..
