Comments about BEHRINGER DC9 COMPRESSOR PEDAL:
I bought this compressor when I lost my old MXR. I like Behringer gear and this was very inexpensive so I thought I would give it a try.This thing is a tone vampire and sucks up your tone. I play a variety of guitars but lately I have been using a Les paul and a VOX VT30 amp.Now I know some will say that the the VOX has a built in compressor in the effects but I am not happy with it. If you leave This Behringer on all the time you can adjust your rig to compensate and it will be fine but if you want to use it as more of an effect (like turning it on during a lead)it will thin out your tone a lot. I am quite comfortable with compressors and use them often in my home studio and my PA system so I know what they can do when working well. This pedal has it's own sound and for live use, it's just too unpredictable.I wanted a pedal that I could turn on to give a little boost in volume and sustain without changing tone while I play a lead.This wasn't good for that purpose.
On the other hand I bought the Behringer CS400 pedal compressor for the same price and it works exactly like I wanted.Great sustain, nice clean signal boost and no tone changes when you turn it on. Just nice even compression.
