    Comments about Maxon Nine Series Compressor Pro+ Pedal:

    Compressors are a necessary evil for me. They're not a "fun" kind of addition to my setup in the way that a thick flange or gnarly fuzz is. On top of that, the mediocre ones are usually guilty of robbing dynamics and making me feel like there's a disconnect between my guitar and amplifier -- what I play doesn't quite translate through -- and a good compressor is usually brutally expensive for something that is, ideally, quite subtle. The Maxon CP9+ falls into the latter category. Actually it falls into its own category. It's definitely expensive, but for me, this is the best comp I've ever played, heard, owned, etc. It adds an organic touch of goodness to my tone. It's not in any way plastic-y or over produced sounding, just musical and natural. What I play goes through this pedal, gets some comp-y mojo thrown into by god knows what kind of circuitry, and roars through my 4x12 with a decidedly "uncompressed" feeling of urgency and attack. No funky compressor artifacts. And smooth, man is it smooth. It can squash if you like that type of thing, but I feel like it's just as much designed for guys who don't love the typical pedal type compression. I think its forte is in enhancing your tone in a way that inspires the player to take a few more risks while playing, trying a few new things in your solos knowing that this pedal will help you translate your ideas into something the audience will find moving. It makes everything better. Everything is more defined, smoother, and sits better (WAY better) in the mix with the CP9+ on. Add to that Maxon's attention to detail and extremely high quality in design and you have a compressor that I think will appeal to everyone who's in need of a few tweaks and pro touches to their signal chain. Oh yeah, it's absolutely whisper quiet for a compressor too! I occasionally used a CP101 before this and I considered it pretty good in terms of noise, but the CP9+ is a lot quieter than even that. A lot more versatile too. So do yourself a favor, get one of these badboys if you're in the market for a comp. It does the "compressor for guys who don't like compressors" thing better than any other pedal I've played.

    Gibson SG > CP9+ > Mesa Royal Atlantic, 4x12 with Creamback 75's and Alnico Golds X-patterned. BOOOOOOM!

    Most Transparent Compressor I've Used

    By GoofyDawg-QoR3y

    from Cupertino, CA

    Comments about Maxon Nine Series Compressor Pro+ Pedal:

    I've had my CP-9 Pro+ for over a year, and I have to say that it has performed nothing short of awesome! It's VERY well built, and it's incredibly transparent. It's one of those pedals that you don't notice when it's on, but you know certainly notice when it's off. It nicely fattens up my Strat's tone, and is just great when go into a solo break and need that extra fatness and sustain that it brings. It's a bit on the pricey side, but it's so well worth it. Sometimes you have to pay to get the tonal and build quality of a pedal like this.

    Awesome Compressor!

    By GoofyDawg-QoR3y

    from Cupertino, CA

    Comments about Maxon Nine Series Compressor Pro+ Pedal:

    If you're looking for a great compressor that maintains your tone, look no further! Compressors generally fall into three camps tone-wise. They either produce a high-end sparkle, they're very squishy, or they're really transparent. The CP9 Pro+ falls into the last camp. It's very very transparent. Granted, that's not for everyone, but I've worked hard to achieve my tone, and I don't want anything messing it up. Especially if you generally play in low-volume venues, like small clubs or churches, a compressor is essential to cut through the mix and not step on your mates. I've tried about 20 different compressors over the past year, and the CP9 Pro+ is what I'm going to get.
