Re: Bass Compressor?

the electro harmonix black finger is outstanding as a compressor. another great compressor is the markbass compressore. both are tube and both are high end. if you want a cheaper one.. the electro harmonix soul preacher is a really good alternative.

Re: Jet City JCA50H Help!!!!!!!
