Wow!

By Robert Hopper

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about MXR M87 Bass Compressor Bass Effects Pedal:

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.

Comments about MXR M87 Bass Compressor Bass Effects Pedal:

Very adjustable, transparent and dead quiet. Short of a Neve studio compressor this is the best I've ever had the pleasure to plug into.

Best small footprint 9V bass compressor yet.

By Ismael Santos

from Tucson, AZ

Comments about MXR M87 Bass Compressor Bass Effects Pedal:

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.

    Comments about MXR M87 Bass Compressor Bass Effects Pedal:

    I wanted a compressor pedal to smooth out the tone my bass tone and even out the string volume. This does both exceptionally well. I had a bit of a scare when I first used it. The meter led's wouldn't work. I tried everything; switched cables, removed and replace the battery, ensured the cables were plugged in correctly etc. I turns out that you must have your basses volume cranked in order to get the led's to start working. Crank your basses volume and the boxes input up and adjust from there. I emailed MXR and suggested that they add this to there FAQ's.

    probably all I'll ever need

    By Chris Arrieta

    from grundy center iowa

    Comments about MXR M87 Bass Compressor Bass Effects Pedal:

    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!

    Excellent

    By Ryan Hill

    from Orange County, CA

    Comments about MXR M87 Bass Compressor Bass Effects Pedal:

    I'm a newbie with compressors so it helps a lot to have the LED meter on the pedal. I don't use it to "fatten" my sound, I just use it to even the volume from string to string on my bass. It sounds very transparent - doesn't change the tone of my bass noticeably.
