    DryBell Unit 67 is a wonderful pedal. It does a couple of really nice things that I think you would enjoy.

    The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

      A simple one I used for quite some time and liked in that line is the Xotic SP compressor. The Keeley four knob is a classic and the Wampler ego I've never used personally but gets good reviews. Since we are here, I'll also recommend the SD Vise Grip
      I own both a Xotic SP and a Wampler Ergo like both a lot. I used a Boss CS 3 fpr years still have several and they have their place. My favorite for transparent sustain in particular with a clean tone is the Ergo with the SP a close second. I also like the CS 3 for a more dramatic effect and say infinite sustain running gain. They are apples to oranges love the Ergo with the blend for a transparent compressor that is on a lot or always and the more aggressive CS-3 or something similar for a compressor used for a more dramatic effect.

        My favorite compressor is a BYOC 5 Knob, which is a kit. If you ever feel like getting into pedal building, this is a great one to start with.

          I really like the SP compressor running off 18 volts. It seems to give more reduced compression options.
