EBS MultiComp Compressor Customer Review
Sound: I really dig this pedal. I've been a gigging for 13 years and the EBS multicomp has been one of the most important purchases I've made, aside from the bass itself! Have ya ever had that problem where the bass gets lost in the mix? Solved. I don't have to turn up to be heard, I just stomp on this baby and the bass "pops-out" and stands out a lot cleaner in the mix. Need a slap tone in an instant? Solved. Switch to MB setting and turn up the compressor. Need an instant warm fingerstyle tone? Solved. Just use the tube setting. Octave pedal not tracking cleanly? Solved. Just put this before your octaver and the tracking is noticeably improved. Hard not to like this pedal. As far as I'm concerned it's suitable for any music style. Feature: Pretty basic controls but there are a lot of variations once you start messing withe trim pots in the back. I enjoy the simplicity but there are other compressor pedals that have a quite a few more options for effect shaping. Ease of Use: Easy, but changing the battery is a pain in the rear. Quality: Totally solid. I've used it for two years, constantly gigging. No problems. Value: It's expensive but it's quality. With compressors you get what you pay and the multicomp is totally worth it. Manufacturer Support: Never had to contact EBS. The Wow Factor: No frills design. All the magic is on the inside. Overall: I'd really really miss this pedal if something happened to it.
Style of Music: Jazz, fusion, rock

"High quality, but not enough control"
Sound: The Multicomp provides three settings: Normal, Multi-band and Tubesim. The normal does the least to color your tone and in that mode all the control is in the comp/limit knob. The tubesim adds a little presence, takes away a little low end and smooths out the mids. The multi-band mode in the factory setting takes away some lows and subtly colors the tone. Feature: Besides the three modes, you can only control the threshold with the comp/limit knob, and adjust the output volume with the gain knob to make up for the decrease in average volume inherent in compression. Other than that, you're stuck with their standard setting for attackm release and ratio. There are also a couple flat screw controls inside the unit for adjusting the separate high and low frequency bands for multi-band mode, but these should have been knobs on the outside of the box. As it is, you would have to remove the screws to set it up for different basses, rigs, rooms, etc. Ease of Use: One 3-way switch and two knobs. Pretty simple. Quality: Seemed well constructed in a sturdy metal housing. All the parts fit together well. Value: I would want more control over the various parameters for $200. The Wow Factor: It's nice and compact Overall: I already returned it and applied my refund toward a JoeMeek FloorQ.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
