Bass Compressor Info
Take your favorite studio compressor to the stage with the MXR M87 Bass Compressor. A complete array of controlsAttack, Release, Ratio, Input, and Outputmakes it easy to fine-tune your sound, from subtle peak limiting to hard squashed compression effects. Its CHT Constant Headroom Technology gives you plenty of headroom and clear performance. This totally transparent compressor allows your full dynamic range to shine through until your signal reaches the compression threshold, which is indicated by the ten, highly visible gain-reduction status LEDs. Its all packed into a durable, lightweight aluminum-housing pedal thats the size of a Phase 90.

Finally, a five-knob compressor in a pedal. Im a compression aficionado, and this box kills! All parameters are tweakable. Billy Sheehan

"Historically, compressor pedals give me the heebie jeebies. So when this pretty pedal showed up sounding all natural and punchy with a cool gain-reduction meter, quelle surprise! Nice job MXR." Justin Meldal-Johnsen

Spend a bit more and you won't be disappointed. This works well with an amp or direct for recording. Very nice tone - smooth and even.

I have been using this pedal now for 6 months and cannot play without it. It gives you a bigger sound than when bypassed. The key is to set up the input level and that is easy with the LED readout. With the other controls at mid it works great for all types of styles, from funk to jazz.

I had a Boss Bass Limiter/Enhancer but it wasn't doing the trick anymore. Couldn't decide if I wanted this or the Diamond. Went with this for a few reasons. 1. Smaller, 2 Controls, 3. The Gain Reduction Meter. This is everything you want in a bass compressor and in a tiny package.

I purchased the Boss LMB-3 which I thought was a fine pedal but I was having sound issues. After some trial and errors I blamed that Limiter (the jury is still out) and ordered the MXR M87. After playing with this compressor, the transparency of this unit was readily apparent. Easy to get a great sound and my basses sound like my basses. Easily worth the extra $100 from the Boss pedal.

As the previous reviewer stated, this pedal is very transparent! Lots of possibilities configuration wise, a bit on the expensive side, but well worth the purchase. I'm very happy with it!

I use a rackmount DBX 160A as part of my gear. It does a great job. But I needed a pedal that would be just as transparent without adding "colour" to my tone. Well, the MXR bass compressor was the answer. I do not like gear that adds colour and tone to my sound as I like to rely on my fingers and my instrument to get the sound that I want. The MXR compressor is the perfect choice if you have to use gear that is provided by the gig and you want something that you can rely on to get the job done. I absolutely recommend this pedal to all gigging bass players.
