G_o's review (M87 Bass Compressor )

By G_o, 10/05/2014
Characteristics are on the net or on the records, the various knobs are really useful, it is appreciable.


The grip is not obvious but frankly we must stick to it for some time and quickly found the sound you are looking for. Attention effect, if one can call it that, is very transparent, it will not color your sound!


This pedal compression is very effective, there is way to boost the sound with the input and output knobs, personally ratio does not exceed 8 after I feel that it eats sound.
Regarding the stuff played on, I use a Rickenbacker 4003 and a 92 Ampeg SVT CL, it sends hard! When you turn off the pedal,


I use it for 2 weeks, I hesitated with Carl Martin but I do not regret my choice.
What I like most is that it is possible to have different type of compression with attak knobs, release, ratio comp and also with input output. The value for money was not bad for me because bought in canada ... But I think you will not lose it to change is one of the best on the market with the Carl Martin is the best! And after much testing and research THE pedal comp a hold, I do it again this choice without hesitation.

Transparent and effective (M87 Bass Compressor )

By manu_kinou, 08/05/2014
For specifications, see the website of MXR. It remains a compressor, so nothing spectacular ...


The use is clear, little we understand how a compressor works.
This site has been indispensable to me:
However, it is very difficult to calibrate a suitable compression by only setting. That is why I am based on a setting of a guy seen on the internet and at rehearsal with everyone, I changed the settings while playing. This improves sound clarity, thickness, etc ... The problem then comes when we put the Jazz Bass to take the Stingray: All settings are input again! LEDs help a lot for it. So there must be a setting input gain to homogenize the various models of bass, what I do for a LS-2. It would have been great to have directly several settings / presets on direct compressor, but here we leave all analog ... whatever, the VT Bass Deluxe Tech21 well permits.


From the moment I found my control, I did most affected:
Release to 16h, 11h to Attack, Output at 9am ratio of 8:1. As to the input I according to the rule with the lowest LS-2 upstream. I play with all the standard arsenal bassist who ignores any technical innovation after 1979: Jazz, Precision and Stingray. I play fretted and fretless.
Transparency is such that I leave on permanently. That makes me a well-defined signal to attack the VT Bass and MS-60B in the effects loop.
When I integrate such distortion or phaser effect on MS-60B, I lose everything intake of the compressor, but that is independent of the chosen model. I think integrate trailing MS-60B an additional compressor.
Ideally, it now seems to me that the compressor at the very end of chain may be appropriate, but I would lose the advantage of the DI output of the VT Bass.
I plan to buy an envelope filter and octave. The first will be placed upstream of the compressor, the second downstream.


I continually use since August 2013. I previously used the integrated ME-8B Boss compressor. This is the day and night of course, is not the same price!
I would do this choice, I do not know if the price / quality ratio is good or not, but the sound is subtly enhanced and gains in density and homogeneity. This is what was expected so I'm happy.
