The following are video demos of some of the best modern compressors on the guitar market, available either new or used. Most guitar compressors are modeled after the MXR Dynacomp, which the famous Ross Compressor was modeled after (and which it improved upon). Features to look for in a compressor are:
- Low noise floor
- Even sustain (no compressor pumping)
- Ability to control the attack of your notes
- True bypass
- Overall mojo. Does the compressor serve your guitar tone?
