Hard to do without - Reviews MXR M102 Dyna Comp Compressor

RAS, everything is stated in other reviews. Simple, unbreakable, simple and effective.


The config is in itself could not be more simple, with only two knobs. on the other hand, each setting gives a specific sound, we must take the time to master the craft. I guess this is the case for compressors in general.


I personally love. The sound is slightly colored effect, which I find very flattering. It brings a little je ne sais quoi in the midrange without crushing the rest of the spectrum, slap!

I use it primarily with output at 5am and sensitivity at 8:00. Without compressing too, we gain much in sustain and despite everything "plop" feature I love attacking the strings means well. To illustrate, we're really in the spirit of the intro to Under The Bridge, or solo Another Brick In The Wall.

I play a strat equipped with EMG SA and did quasimment longer needs my EHX freeze so the chords are longssss. For solos like indie-rock-blues, dyna comp does wonders to bring relief to his game, including offering high ghost notes, mutes or natural harmonics.

Coupled with a TS-like (in my case the EHX East River Drive), it really is a killer: it is in the grain of the intro to "which of us two," or pushing a little gain, the solo of "late night" (foals).

I hope these examples give an idea of ​​the different types of sounds to pull the pedal!


I discovered this pedal with the world of compression (I did toy with the compressors before multi effects or computer music "basic", it has nothing to do). Without having tried other models, so I am unable to compare or judge the pedal compared to others.

For my game, it's top and really matches my expectations. I find it perfect for sounds a bit more fluid and crados frusciantien or gilmourien type solos. on the other hand, it strikes me as ill-suited to shred and metal.

€ 85 ... well that's the price of a pedal what! I think it's worth. It stings to drop a ticket for a fun effect less than others at first, but your sound will come out really transcended!
