MXR Compressors
« on: January 11, 2012, 08:17:43 PM »
They sure do know how to "yank yer chain"! I'm trying to figure out why MXR has to make so many of these that you know you'll want to know the difference between them. So far there's these below:

1) M-102 Dyna Comp          $69.99                                 
2) M-132 Super Comp         $79.99
3) CSP028 Custom Shop Vintage Dyna Comp   $174.99
4) CSP202 Custom Comp    $129.99
 
All from one manufacturer. Is this really necessary? I'll bet it'll be fun comparing all these pedals that do the same thing. Does anybody think that it's THAT much of a difference (besides price of course!) between these pedals? I think one of them is hand made (or hand wired) but other than that, are the compressor police gonna come to your gig or residence to see which one you have? Now, this is just MXR. Who knows how many others are doing this? This industry is a trip! Gotta make that Moo-La $$$$$$$$$$$! ::)

Excellent point! And I'll bet there's some Einstein that can tell you they know the vast differences between all of them down to the last detail. Hey..... want a overdrive or distortion pedal? You can get:

1) M78 Custom Badass '78 Distortion
2) M104 Distortion Plus
3) M115 Distortion III
4) ZW44 Zakk Wylde Overdrive
5) CSP-21 GT-OD Overdrive
6) M77 Custom Badass Modified Overdrive (New)
7) M-116 Fullbore Medal

I'm not gonna count these 'cause these are not really like the rest;
1) M33 Micro Amp
2) M103 Blue Box (Fuzz)

Think ya got enough to choose from? ;D Oh, BTW, I'm gettin' #6  ::)

This is fun.....BOSS! Hmmmmmm let's see......

DS-1, SD-1, MT-2, BC-2, OS-2, DS-2, OD-3, ML-2, ST-2, MD-2 and lastly DN-2. :o
Pick one.... any one. Hey boss, think ya got enough distortion/overdrive pedals out there?

These, I can actually hear a legitimate difference over the previous wave up there.

FDR-1, FBM-1 and BD-2. I don't believe these count FB-1 and FZ-5.

ST-2 is a Overdriven Marshall in a box.  My favorite boss pedal.  Only got rid of it because my DeltaBlues uses the same output power tubes as a Marshall, so its basically a mini-Marshall and really sounds like it....
