MXR M102 Dyna Comp Compressor
The MXR M102 Dyna Comp is a guitar compression pedal that has a 1/4 inch input and a 1/4 inch output and is overall very basic in make up. It is an analog pedal and isn't a rack mountable piece of gear as it is a foot pedal.

UTILIZATION

The make up of the MXR M102 Dyna Comp couldn't be any easier than it is. It simply has two knobs - one for output and one for sensitivity, which is pretty much as basic as you can get when it comes to compression pedals and compressors in general. Manipulating the tone is a really easy thing to do and getting a variety of good tones is also quite simple. I don't have the manual for the MXR M102 Dyna Comp, but it really isn't necessary as the pedal is simple on its own.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound of the MXR M102 Dyna Comp is awesome and the pedal is one of my favorites because of this. The sustain you can get on this pedal will last for days and you can also get a nice crunch tone with it as well. I usually use this pedal with a Fender Stratocaster plugged into a 1976 Fender Twin Reverb amplifier and I'm always very pleased with the tones I'm able to achieve with this set up. The sound of this pedal makes it a worthy investment for any guitarist.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had my MXR M102 Dyna Comp for about three or four years and I've found it to be a great compression pedal. While it certainly doesn't sound as good as some rackable compressors, as far as compression pedals go this is one of the best ones out there. The price is very reasonable and the only other compression pedal I've used that is comparable in tone and in price is the Boss CS-3. I think every guitarist should own a compression pedal as I love adding that endless sustain to my lead parts and that crunch to my rhythm parts and the MXR M102 Dyna Comp is one of the best ones out there for doing so.

MXR M102 Dyna Comp Compressor
This is a pretty basic analog compression pedal for guitar. It's not a rackable unit, it's a pedal. It can't be edited through MIDI or any computer software.

UTILIZATION

This pedal is very small and compact. It's only got two knobs on it, one for Output and one for Sensitivity. It's got the footswitch and the standard guitar 1/4" ins and outs. The manual explains what each knob does pretty well, though to really appreciate the sounds that you can get out of it, you need to do some knob twiddling on your own.

SOUND QUALITY

I've used this with my Strat and the Les Paul, and I totally prefer it with the Les Paul without a doubt. Hands down the best thing about it is its relative lack of noise. Most pedals in this range are very noisy in comparison. However, it's not exactly the most faithful compressor to my original sound. In fact, the only time it's really useful when you're coloring your tone significantly. The best thing about it is sustain on leads. However, it tends to give it that 80s, fake-sounding sustain that I don't really prefer. Sometimes it's necessary when playing live, but I tend to prefer something a bit more natural sounding. The compressor makes clean tones sound pretty uninspired and boring, and I'm convinced that they're only good at hiding dynamics that would only make your playing sound more compelling. You might need to compress some of them while recording, but I honestly think that you'd be better off with a rackable or outboard compressor, as it's more versatile than this and won't rob your tone of its personality.

OVERALL OPINION

I was hoping that the lack of extremely precise controls would make this pedal less frustrating to use, but the tones themselves were what ended up frustrating me the most. For the price, I guess this isn't too bad, but you can do better. If noise is a huge issue for you, this might be a good purchase, but you'd be better off in the long run going for something with more control and more transparency.

MXR M102 Dyna Comp Compressor
The MXR M102 Dyna Comp is one of the most common compressors on the market. It's one of the cheaper units and can be seen on many boards. It's reliable and easy to find. It's got 2 controls a small footprint and a sturdy build that MXR enclosures are known for.

UTILIZATION

The pedal has an Output knob and a Sensitivity knob. Standard 1/4" input and output. The manual explains pretty well how to make use of the knobs. But I feel like it's pretty subjective to the gear you are using. The pedal functions differently with different pickups and guitars I've used. So some good old fashioned knob tweaking will be needed. I've found that I can't yet find a setting to keep it on for everything.

SOUND QUALITY

I've used this pedal with various guitars. A tele, strat and les paul. Also my ESPLTD EC-1000 and my Schecter PT. All the guitars react a little differently due to output changes and set ups. It colors your tone and seems to roll of some high and low end. It's a very noisy pedal but I have it set up to be fairly quite with my NS-2. If you're looking for some country squash or some funky pop, this is a really good pedal for that. But for the more transparent tone sweetening you get on higher end compressors, you'll need to spend a little more money.

OVERALL OPINION

I like the Dyna Comp for more squashed compression, and it's really good for the money, but you can get a much better compressor for a bit more money. With less noise and more tweakability. I've tried other compressors and I think I am going the higher end route for compression. Though this is nice for the price, I can justify a few more bucks for less noise and quality.

MXR M102 Dyna Comp Compressor
The MXR Dyna-Comp is probably one of the more famous compressors out there. It's been around for who knows how long, and it's been part of rigs since before I was born. The ability to squish the notes works awesome for clean tones, and it can actually be used as a bit of a solo aid as well, assuming you don't plan on squishing the piss out of your tone. There are very few compressors out there as readily available as this, as well as being as musical sounding as this one.

UTILIZATION

MXR pedals are put into very strong housings. You could jump on this from the balcony, and I bet it would still survive. The only real issues I ever see with these are that the switches will sometimes go, but that's after years and years of hard touring abuse. I've seen people spill beers on these without any issues at all. Using it is very easy as there are only two knobs. You simply adjust the two knobs to the amount of compression you're looking for, and you're good to go. There are a few sample settings in the manual, and if you want more info, you can look in there, but considering how easy this pedal is to use, it's really not needed.

SOUND QUALITY

The sound is great. For clean tones, if you ever wanted that spanky kind of clean sound, this is the pedal you're looking for. You can squish the clean tone enough to where it sounds a lot more even and not nearly as "peaky" as clean tones tend to be. Country cleans are pretty much always heavily compressed, and this can do that kind of tone in spades. I don't really recommend using this on rhythms too much as it tends to be a bit too compressed, but on leads, it can be a pretty sweet lead boost that helps give you some extra sustain without harming the original tone too much.

OVERALL OPINION

If you're looking for a solid compressor for the price, this is probably the one you want to get. There are better ones out there such as the famous Keeley Compressor, but that's very expensive, and it's not exactly necessary for everyone. While that happens to be my main compressor, this one is great in a pinch, and I find myself using it whenever I go to a store to test out clean tones.
