I just joined an 11-pc '70s R&B/funk outfit with a bunch of casino dates on the books. Very cool find. I come from about a decade of backing traditional blues/soul acts and have not had a pedal board in many years. I did some research into rigs for players in this genre, and I picked up a compressor based on some of the advice I read. My local store had an MXR Super Comp, so I got that. We had our first gig last Saturday night. Went real well, I think I'm going to lose weight in this band I am playing my Jerry Donahue CS Tele into a Fender Jazzmaster Ultralight. The band was real impressed with the tone. But I had one issue I seek the TDPRI mindhive advice on: Given my background, I am used to totally controlling my stage volume with my guitar volume knob. In this gig, the compressor needs to be on nearly all the time for the chicka-chicka rhythms. But I seemed to have lost most of my volume knob functionality with the compressor on. I had the attack and sensitivity set to both about 10 O'Clock. How do I get my stage volume control back? Is there a better compressor? Settings? Is a volume pedal post-compressor the best option?
