    SP for me, can't be without a blend control personally. Also I like the fact it just has 3 settings on a toggle for "amount" of compression rather than knobs that I can fuck up and get confused about.

    I'd grab a used Keeley Comp or Comp+. You can find them under $100. It's the gold standard of comp pedals as far as I'm concerned.

    So i hear! Theres many different keeley compressors and ive heard in the past that the keeley 4 knob comp is THE ONE. But realistically are any Keeley comps good because id rather get a 2 knob for simplicity etc

    If you're going to cut down on flexibility and adjustability, you should really try them out, especially with your rig if you can.
