So, I've decided recently to build a separate pedalboard for my bass instead of using the same big one for bass and guitar. I have an Xotic SP compressor that I use for guitar, and I love it. I've used it on bass before too, and it really just sounds killer. Granted, the settings must be adjusted much differently between the two. Since this would require taking the SP off the board and messing with the internal dip switches, I decided to just get a different kind of compressor and experiment. So, my thoughts were to pick up the coveted Keeley Compressor Plus! I figured it would either sound great for my bass, or it would sound killer on guitar and I could use the SP just for my bass instead. I spent some time fiddling with settings last night and...I am not impressed! I was really surprised by this because there is so, so much hype around this pedal. And, I know that Keeley makes fantastic A Grade products. But, the compressor introduced a slightly amount of dirt to my tone both on guitar and bass. This was especially true when I used the humbucker setting (guitar has passive humbuckers and bass has active humbuckers). No matter how much I messed with the gain, compression, blend, etc., there was still a slight dirt on the signal with that pedal alone. I A/B'd with my SP, and this just wasn't the case with the Xotic. Am I the only one that has experienced this??? It feels almost blasphemous to instantly reject the Keeley Compressor Plus haha. Anyways, I'm not really looking for advice. I just figured this would be fun place to talk about this experience. If you're curious, my initial game plan now is to sell the Keeley and my Boss Bass OD that I no longer need. After, I think I will either pick up the Darkglass Hyper Luminal, Seymour Duncan Studio Bass, or Keeley Bassist. Those seem to get killer reviews. Happy gear experimenting!
