This is it guys, a DynaComp with an "Attach" control. No mods required. What else would you need or want? If you know how to use a compressor, you will find this compressor to fit in very well. Adds no noise (again, if you know how to use it), and does not alter the tone (outside of that sought after DynaComp flavoring). I've tried the Maxon CP101 (ok pedal) and the Ibenez/Maxon CP-9 (good pedal but way overpriced). With the added "Attach" control you gain more control over how the compressor reacts and is more versatile than the DynaComp when used between single coil and humbucker guitars output levels. The SuperComp is what's on my board.

I originally purchased a compressor to add sustain to my country chicken-pickin' leads, and to make the notes in chords hold in a bit longer. I initially was very happy with this pedal. The attack knob adds a ton of versatility and it eliminates some of the 'poppy, clickiness' that dyna comps are known for. It essentially allowed the compressor to sound more tranparent, although it could sound like a dyna comp when needed. There are better sounding, more transparent compressors out there, but for the price I was very content with the pedal. Unfortunately, after a while I noticed that this pedal was hugely sucking the tone from my signal when it was disengaged. When the pedal was disengaged, my tone was sterile and anemic, and horrible. When I took the pedal out of my board, the 'sterileness' was gone. Then I looked it up and found out that this pedal is 'true hardwire bypass', not true bypass as I had been tricked into believing. For the value, the pedal is good. But for me, it's way too much of a tone sucker. I am going with a high end true-bypass boutique compressor.

Try it on your bass.

Comments about MXR M-132 Super Comp Compressor Pedal:

I'm still turning the knobs trying to find the right guitar tone, but for my bass guitar, this pedal has done the trick. With "attack" and "sensitivity" cranked, it made the bass feel far more alive and responsive; the sound had more punch. I use a hard pick, and this brought out the pick attack sound. Give it a try, it may give you what you're looking for.

Comments about MXR M-132 Super Comp Compressor Pedal:

I bought this yesterday at best buy and I cant turn it off. I have a Dimarzio Super Distortion in my Axis and it ALMOST sounds like clean channel with crunch on. It gives me that warm sound I have been seeking in an amp with out buying a new one.

Quality?

Comments about MXR M-132 Super Comp Compressor Pedal:

Great sound, the attack seems useless to me, maybe ok to others, what got me is the 3PDPT switch is well how do ya say(the most important part when it comes to off and on) is like no other I have ever seen? Soldered to the circuit board but is mechanical, bolted separately from the circuit board, and if it ever comes loose, well its no good any more, which mine did(I have a big foot but). Mine lasted about a year? Use a loop switcher and leave it on and maybe it will hold up. Had to take mine apart and set it to the on position to continue to work. I also own a carbon copy(hope it has a different type of switch)and many other Dunlop products but the 3PDPT switch is #&%^!@. Sorry Jim but it is what it is?

AMAZING VALUE

By Tin Zimmermann

from TN

See all my reviews

Comments about MXR M-132 Super Comp Compressor Pedal:

This was the first compressor that I bought. I use it with a Fender Strat.Its very easy to dial in compression that suits your style. Ive used it for every thing from rock to acoustic. It has made a tremendous difference to my personal tone. The sustain is simply amazing. Ive tried the others, some were better, BUT certainly not worth the money for the difference. I love this pedal. Ive seen a few complaints about how this doesnt hit the high notes of the dyna comp; THEYRE WRONG. This does a WAY better job. Anyone who liked the Dyna Comp better and actually tried this pedal are either A) too lazy to learn how to use a proper compressor pedal B) Van Halen fanatics C) have issues with whether or not its true bypass. Ill address the true bypass issue very quickly. Some say it kills their tone. I consider myself a tone snob and this has never bothered me. This is a much better pedal than the BOSS CS series, which arent true bypass either. I liked the Keeley but I personally not worth the money unless you have it. In all seriousness, this is a great buy and you will thoroughly enjoy it if you use your ears. Though tone is a personal thing.

Comments about MXR M-132 Super Comp Compressor Pedal:

I love the addition of the attack feature. It keeps the compression even, avoiding that millisecond over compressed 'clip' that always plagued my old DOD compressor. Perfect for that snappy Nashville sound. Great MXR quality.

Not bad, it's pedal compression, and it works.

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about MXR M-132 Super Comp Compressor Pedal:

I got one because I needed a compression for my tube amp. I love tube sound, but I need a tight soundinig response on my guitar. The down side, is that this thing adds a low hum/noise when on. It's not my guitar or amp (Schecter S-1 Elite / Mesa/Boogie Road King) so I just switch it off when I'm supposed to pause or in between songs. Seems like a lot of $$ but there's not much else to choose from, certainly not any cheaper. I would recommend this for those who know what compression does. Remember it's not an effects pedal that will warp your sounds. *It really adds a boost where my sound is weak.

Comments about MXR M-132 Super Comp Compressor Pedal:

Originaly, I wanted sustain mainly for single lead notes so I could use the same rhythm tone also for leads - which I achieved with this pedal. Combined with my quality Graphic e.q. I now have fattend metal tone that has to be heard to be believed- even at bedroom volume !

Great Pedal

By Rob-St_iA

from Alabama

Comments about MXR M-132 Super Comp Compressor Pedal:

I just received my new MXR Super Comp today. This is my first compressor, but I've read up on and experimented with a few others. This has a great sound to it. It's not as transparent as some of the higher-end botique models, so you can hear some change in the tone. However, this is still a GREAT compressor. I LOVE IT. It's MXR, so you know you're getting a great product. If you need a great compressor for a good price, but it.
