The DynaComp should serve you well. I have an old 80s Series 2000 DynaComp that has been a part of my sound for so long I could not imagine not having it on my board. I don't know the difference between it and the little orange/red DynaComps tonewise, but i doubt there's a huge difference. Great compressor. You just have to watch it and keep the compression low. Mine is at about 9 o'clock. Anything over that and it squishes the signal really fast and hard. If you are looking for that, for chicken pickin Country or something like some of the Mowtown or Funk stuff, it will do it really well. i think you'll be happy with it.
