Compression is one of the secret weapons that is almost always on in my signal chain. Using a compression pedal with a clean or “dry” blend control is key to getting the chimey, sparkle-like tone through the Stratocaster and Vox combo. For a long time, I only used the MXR Dyna Comp, but with its very limited controls and sounds, I have recently changed to a Walrus Audio Deep Six compressor. With beautiful artwork, and a Ross Compressor type sound and dry blend, this pedal is built to be used and abused, but also admired. Next week, I’ll be covering boost and overdrive. Happy recording!
