I use an Xotic SP -- very versatile whether used as a compressor or boost -- or both.
Nothing sexy about, but I use my Boss CS-3 more as a clean boost than any other use.
Mooer Yellow Comp came. Awesome. May be the best comp I’ve ever played. If the Diamond is better than this I will eventually get one. It came double bagged but the box inside was crushed up. The pedal seems fine but it makes me leery since it must have taken a hit. Idk.
The VS Comp 66 NIB came too. Stinks like cigarettes. Even the box is nicotine stained. Started the return process. Absolutely gross.
Can anything be easy?
did you consider using an EQ for boost?
providing you are not trying to boost frequencies your system doesnt cover you'll be able to get a good 6-12 db boost or cut and tailor or scupt your sound for cheap and notch any high end hiss in the process,
So anyway. Yellow Comp. Amazing. It creates a wonderful focus and even seems to improve and smooth whatever level of gain you happen to be using. No noise. Surprisingly squishy when cranked. A real winner! I can’t imagine the Diamond being so much better to justify the price difference.
Also. It’s orange. Not yellow. Don’t you think?
This is my first Mooer. It doesn’t seems as heavy duty as the Donners I have. Donners packaging is a much nicer presentation and provides better protection and the prices are significantly lower.
Just my 2 cents.
So, how is it working for you as a boost?
Could easily work alone as a boost. I paired it with my Boost Killer after it and it makes the amp scream with focus. So sweet!
I'm surprised how much boost is available on the Yellow Comp. I guess after hearing about the Diamond for so many years, I was expecting something much more subtle. It does the subtle very well but it can squish for sure. Quiet even cranked. I'm smitten.
That's exactly my settings...
I like it, but still has some noise though.
I recently picked up a Keeley compressor pro. It's really good and quiet. Takes a little getting used to because it's really different from the SP.
But very clean and quiet, and lots of boost/cut on tap.
I use one also. I have mine in the low position with both knobs at around 2:00. The dip-switches are in the stock position.
