The power of a studio-grade compressor in a compact stompbox.

Take your favorite studio compressor to the stage with the MXR M87 Bass Compressor. A complete array of controls-Attack, Release, Ratio, Input, and Output-makes 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.

The totally transparent M87 Bass 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. It's all packed into a durable, lightweight aluminum-housing pedal that's the size of a Phase 90.

  • Best small footprint 9V bass compressor yet.

    As reviewed by Ismael Santos on 9/21/2011

    Thisnhas been the very best small footprint 9V battery capable bass compressor I have used to date. I like the full featured controls and LED indicator. This pedal replaced my Markbass Bass Compressore, and that is saying something. I found the pedal to be vet transparent and versatile. Allowing. For good dynamics and light to ver heavy compression. I did find the input control to be very sensitive and if you have a modern active bass with a hot signal you will need to be very careful in fine tuning the input to make sure you are hitting the right point of the compression indicator to make it work well for your playing style when transitioning from slap to finger style. With all 5 controls it is easy to and quick to fin t tune the compressor to your needs and the LED indicator really comes in handy for finding your same settig again on the input control when you are setting up in a noisy environment. The sound, build and usability are excellent. I would highly recommend this compressor to any bassist looking for a transparent unit however if you are looking for that tube compression sound then maybe sticking with the Markbass or one of the other units on the market would be better for your style. I however am still very satisfied with the pedal.

  • probably all I'll ever need

    As reviewed by Chris Arrieta on 9/23/2012

    I just bought a used model of this compressor. Everything still works... you can tell it's been used so that speaks to quality... this thing is built like the tanks mxr is known for... as far as the tone and things go, I play everything from jazz and funk to progressive metal, I've yet to find anything wrong as far as getting that squished tone I want. and on top of that... it helps me find the pop and slap tone I've been wanting... the only down fall? It picks up radio stations every now and again... seems to love religious talk shows! lol... but I still love this thing... MXR IS BEAST!

  • Wow!

    As reviewed by Robert Hopper on 1/24/2012

    Along with dead quiet operation and very transparent tone, the LED meter is what sets this apart from the others. It is really easy to see what is going on and is a blessing for the first time user. The manual is really helpful with the initial setup, and operation is quite easy after getting used to the controls. This one is a keeper for sure.
