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

    UTILIZATION

    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.

    SOUND QUALITY

    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…

    SOUND QUALITY

    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!

    OVERALL OPINION

    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!

    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Pure and simple compression.

    UTILIZATION

    Two pots, one that "pushes" the bottom and one that compresses the top. Stupid, no frills.

    SOUND QUALITY

    A new life began the day I tried the compressor first. I do not even think resell CS3, the fear of being a scam.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I changed my tune by this comp CS3 dynamic, and I finally know what is a real compressor ... I regret not having bought it earlier.

    UTILIZATION

    There is always a moment galley before finding the right settings (like any compression eventually) but once seated it's all good. What must be used.

Fun to play stoner / doom, I was looking for the comp to accompany my fuzz with good sustain and erase my attack when I play with a pick. Nickel from this point of view. Note that it is not transparent, it adds a little color that does not displease me, but that may hinder certain.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for almost a year now. I love MXR still an excellent price / quality ratio when looking for a quality product without breaking the bank too much. A small flat on the cowardice of knobs, to check if it is still relevant or just mine.

    Bought € 70 OCCAZ, I'm not disappointed and I hope to keep it a while :)

    The good compressor!

    MXR M102 Dyna Comp CompressorPublished on 05/01/13 at 01:14
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Analog compression effect.
    Robust housing with classic MR.

    UTILIZATION

    A knob volume level, one for the level of effect: hard to easy.
    Manuel useless.
    As always with MXR, catalog and Dunlop brand effects and other documents.

    SOUND QUALITY

    Indeed both effective and musical: the hallmark of MXR!
    Used at the beginning of the chain with various Les Paul and Stratocaster.

    OVERALL OPINION

    OVERALL OPINION

    This pedal has been one of the very first (Phase 90 with the Disto +, the big Muff and Small Clone: ​​in almost exactly the pedals that I had in my early youth) that I learned when I got rid of my Cyber ​​Deluxe and my multi-effects. Needless to say how much the gap is huge, in terms of musicality, between the compressor and what has a multi-purpose.
    What characterizes this pedal, as indeed throughout the MXR range is above all his great musicality and class. Yes, to my taste, there's class, distinction in the MXR effects!
    Everyone here knows what is and what a compressor, it is not necessary to return.
    I most often used for fluidity that provides solo and therefore sustain. Like any compressor, and of course depending on the settings, it can erase the lead attack and I particularly appreciate the fact that close violoning he is able to get, especially since we play with fingers .
    It allows me to get that one of the pedals that I owned and loved especially gave me the Roland Slow Gear (reprinted by Boss), alas found today. But it is of course much more versatile.
    This pedal is at ease with any type of distortion, overdrive or fuzz. And I love all these combinations. It provides endless sustain with a Big Muff and humbuckers.
    I have since acquired Vintage Reissue, even better, but carefully preserved.
    A great product.

    MXR M102 Dyna Comp CompressorPublished on 05/01/12 at 12:14
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Good compressor pedal, precisely known. Ultra solid and heavy (MXR what!)
    is made to last.
    Two settings buttons (the compression rate and volume of output), but effective and with a lot of interactivity. It may take some time to fumble and refine until you find the sound you need ... but we get there!

    UTILIZATION

    I used it mainly for funky rhythms, arpeggios and (essentially) the slide. In all these uses it is reliable and sounds great, and even surprisingly good with the slide, in clear or slightly saturated. Provided reflect the fact that he tends to "pump" and the sound to distort it a bit, especially when the compression is turned up enough, but it's the fault of just all…

Provided reflect the fact that he tends to "pump" and the sound to distort it a bit, especially when the compression is turned up enough, but it's the fault of just all compressors, it's part of the effect. Just know and adapt his game and its settings accordingly.
    While we're in the defects, we can add it produces a lot of breath. It has the charm of the old what!

    SOUND QUALITY

    The dyna comp is not at all transparent, it has a way of coloring the sound of its own and that is precisely what is cool (even though everyone seems to seek transparency today. As well ask an amp Marshall to be transparent. And then what?)
    on the other hand it is not for shredders, because I think it is not made for saturation (that said, everyone's tastes). If you need a compressor to play legato and flowing solos, not clear whether this is the one for you. This is where you'll need something more "transparent".

    OVERALL OPINION

    I sold it because it was redundant and that I almost used it. But I rather regret that very special color, I repeat, is not at all a fault in my opinion. I'm not a very big user of the compressor, but I still regularly used some models as required (funky rhythmic "slap", slide, arpeggios ...) and this one was very properly the job.
    From secondhand, I think it is a good price / quality ratio.

    MXR Dyna Comp

    MXR M102 Dyna Comp CompressorPublished on 11/02/10 at 16:00
    This is the tried and true red 2 knob MXR Dyna Comp. It's been around forever, well more accurately, I think since the 1970s.

    I acquired this pedal used for $40. New they run about $70.

    It is simple to use. It gives a great boost as well as will tighten things up if needed. Great if you want to even out your guitar's signal.

    The best sound I got out of it was using is together with a clean Fender strat into a Fender Twin Reverb. Reminded me of some of the sounds you might hear from Stevie Ray Vaughan or John Frusciante.

    If I had paid the new price of what these pedals go for I might feel a bit let down. The pedal is noisy on the high end. There isn't much else out there…

    If I had paid the new price of what these pedals go for I might feel a bit let down. The pedal is noisy on the high end. There isn't much else out there for the same price. I did hear that Behringer is coming out with a similar pedal. I'm curious how that will stack up. The Behringer will probably not be as durable, but it will most likely be half the price.

    Quality and construction are fair for a sub $100 pedal.

    If you need a simple compressor for your live guitar rig, this is it. If you want a better hi-fi sounding one, look elsewhere. You will hear a little noise and that is the only reason I suggest it more for live use than in a studio setting.

    MXR Dyna Comp

    MXR M102 Dyna Comp CompressorPublished on 12/30/03 at 15:00
    Paid $75 at a used place

    I like everything about this pedal. It is tuned and set up for the guitar and enhances all manner of signal you throw at it. Whether you want to bring out the clean tones or sustain the gritty tones, the dyna comp does the job and adds very little noise in the process. It's also very easy to use, unlike many compressors. I like to put the output at 3 o'clock and the sensitivity at 8:00 o'clock. The effect is there but is unobtrusive.

    I can't think of a bad thing to say.

    Excellent

    A must have for any analog pedal maniac. Don't leave home without it.

    Analog compressor pedal.
    A knob "output" manages the output level, a knob "sensitivity" runs the compression ratio.

    The general setup is super simple, like most Mxr, we find in fact that two knobs, very interactive. After a while it binds to one or more preferred settings.
    I did not have the manual. Editing sounds is a bit complex, because of the subtle nature of this kind of effect but it is fast!

    SOUND QUALITY

    The pedal has a very vintage compression, warm, and then typed. It will be great for jazz / blues / rock or the slide example, but the followers of sounds funkers rights similar to those of the "Live 86" by Serge Gainsbourg is confused maybe not!
    This is not optimal for a booster drive, too colorful for my taste.
    I used it with humbuckers. Now that I've typed a vintage Start, had to be should I réinteresser this little red pedal ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used it for a while, I tried the Boss Cs3 which did not suit me, too cold and right as well as being noisier than the dyna comp.
    You have to push a little output for the same noise level as its base, it's a shame. The Super Comp Mxr home has an additional setting "attack level" handy ...
    The value for money is honest, Mxr products are excellent in their price range and beyond. With experience, I try again the models, because I am sure there are better elsewhere ...

    This pedal is a great introduction into the world of compressor side vintage!

    Very solid compressor

    MXR M102 Dyna Comp CompressorPublished on 11/22/11 at 17:46
    The MXR Dyna-Comp is probably one of the more famous compressors out there. It's been around for who knows how long, and it's been part of rigs since before I was born. The ability to squish the notes works awesome for clean tones, and it can actually be used as a bit of a solo aid as well, assuming you don't plan on squishing the piss out of your tone. There are very few compressors out there as readily available as this, as well as being as musical sounding as this one.

    UTILIZATION

    MXR pedals are put into very strong housings. You could jump on this from the balcony, and I bet it would still survive. The only real issues I ever see with these are that the switches will somet…

There are very few compressors out there as readily available as this, as well as being as musical sounding as this one.

    UTILIZATION

    MXR pedals are put into very strong housings. You could jump on this from the balcony, and I bet it would still survive. The only real issues I ever see with these are that the switches will sometimes go, but that's after years and years of hard touring abuse. I've seen people spill beers on these without any issues at all. Using it is very easy as there are only two knobs. You simply adjust the two knobs to the amount of compression you're looking for, and you're good to go. There are a few sample settings in the manual, and if you want more info, you can look in there, but considering how easy this pedal is to use, it's really not needed.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The sound is great. For clean tones, if you ever wanted that spanky kind of clean sound, this is the pedal you're looking for. You can squish the clean tone enough to where it sounds a lot more even and not nearly as "peaky" as clean tones tend to be. Country cleans are pretty much always heavily compressed, and this can do that kind of tone in spades. I don't really recommend using this on rhythms too much as it tends to be a bit too compressed, but on leads, it can be a pretty sweet lead boost that helps give you some extra sustain without harming the original tone too much.

    OVERALL OPINION

    If you're looking for a solid compressor for the price, this is probably the one you want to get. There are better ones out there such as the famous Keeley Compressor, but that's very expensive, and it's not exactly necessary for everyone. While that happens to be my main compressor, this one is great in a pinch, and I find myself using it whenever I go to a store to test out clean tones.
