Dunlop has announced the release of the MXR M87 Bass Compressor that was previewed at the NAMM show in January. Here's what they have to say about it...
We took all of the functions of a classic recording studio compressor and put them into a stompbox the size of a Phase 90, allowing you to take it anywhere, from rehearsals to the stage. Its array of controls--Attack, Release, Ratio, Input, and Output--allow you to fine-tune your sound, from subtle peak limiting to hard, squashed compression. Its transparency allows your full dynamic range to shine through until your signal reaches the compression threshold, indicated by the ten highly visible gain-reduction status LEDs. With its CHT™ Constant Headroom Technology, you have heaps of headroom for clear performance.
Acclaimed bass player Billy Sheehan had this to say about it: "Finally, a five-knob compressor in a pedal. I'm a compression aficionado, and this box kills! All parameters are tweakable."
