Linn Sondek's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent (but that's normal: it is a MXR!)"

MXR CSP202 Custom Comp
Here is a well endowed with compressor since it has four settings:
2 External: output level and compression level
2 internal: attack level and level compressed frequency

This is a stamped "Custom Shop" with the famous chip CA3080, rare musical hyper release. The effect is as usual in analog MXR, and fits in a beautiful and sturdy white box dimensions, too, usual brand. Feeding can be done in two ways: internally by 9v battery or external AC transformer.
Full pedal, therefore.


When we know what we are looking to obtain any effect adjusts quickly and easily. The compressor is perhaps an exception to this rule. And all its settings will show numerous and sensitive.
The CSP202 with 4 settings require a little time and attention tests. And depending on the desired result (a homogeneous sound rhythmic or sustain long solo, for example), it will adapt these settings. But for everyone here, it remains obvious, of course!


I play Les Paul and various combos and heads (see my gear for more info).

The sound quality is at the rendezvous, as always with MXR brand that I love.
In the range of compressor (MXR and proposes 4), it shows the most transparent and offer the best level of output. It is also the quietest, insofar TRIM is adjusted delicately. Because if the parameter is pushed, the sound distorts and unless voluntarily seek such an effect that distorts the desired result.
I most often use this type of pedal to smooth my distortions and improve sustain. With its quiet operation and its neutrality, Custom Comp perfectly fulfills this role. But I prefer the version of Vintage Reissue Dyna Comp to sustain longer and more typical warm sound for solos. In his clear arpeggio, the Custom Comp wins just by its transparency.


I have 4 MXR compressors and my preference is therefore to reissue Vintage Dyna Comp. Provided that I use the compressor especially solo and grain and sustain the Reissue suit me more. Rhythmic arpeggios or clean sound, the trend reverses and then I recommend the Custom Comp does wonders for his neutrality in these scenarios.
In all cases, MRX offers, once again, a foot high sound quality and workmanship. Made in USA, as always for MXR Custom Comp is the proven effective, musical, complete and versatile for a price, in the end, quite reasonable and incommensurate with the abuses practiced by the manufacturers of "boutique".

MXR CSP202 Custom Comp
Achetter shop in the advantage if the seller is nice: Power 6 pedals try compression in a soundproof room. In fact, the compression is subtle; EVERY pedal has a grain and a particular color.

This MXR me and this is one of the purest I tried .. No noise on the line when it comes into action, the MXR comp from home is a red interference of folly by the electronic board is not at all the same ..


Fender Tele 52 and HOTROD
That slap funk or in a phone dial you set off on cuts to the redhot ..




More than recommandable.Un flagship product and very easy no-brainer, we can finally take his guitar to make adjustments without 200000 before playing ..

On the interior:
- A knob for the Attack
- A knob TRIM frequency drives to the beach compress

Dtails the killing:

Aeronautic aluminum case, ultra Lger (the heavier the battery is ...)
Resumed knobs phosphorescent

can be a little knobs on the internal tank but in the end it is quite intuitive because they are strong and specific on. Once one has found the rglage us is, we rarely return it. The freaks have rglages prfr mini knobs on it, but people who prefer to play love this cot "BOOTIK" as our friends say ricanos.

The rglage Volume / signification is the same as a Dynacomp:

Very quiet.

Versatile, a neutral and discreet rglage compression boosts and type, everything is possible.


I have been playing 15 years on a Dynacomp I am a huge fan and any other compressor in the range 100/200 taste had found my ears all this time ...

It's like a Dynacomp in:

-2x more expensive ...

IF you're not a fan of the MXR cuts you deu as it is in line, otherwise you'll love this custom shop version PERFECT.

Report qualitprix unbeatable: 140 in Europe / USA 100. The price is justified by the quality standard of the product.

I am the first to leave a comment on a product that will undoubtedly become the new references of compressors ...
