MXR M-132 Super Comp Review

Unlike many of its competitors, the latest version of MXR’s classic compressor comes with an ‘attack’ dial, as well as ‘output’ and ‘sensitivity’ knobs. The goal of this is to alleviate that squishing tone found in earlier compressor models and with a bit of tweaking, the MXR M132 achieves this quite well. However, be careful. Once past noon, we thought the sustain had an artificial quality about it. Best keep it on low settings for a more natural tone.

MXR M-102 Dyna Comp Review

The MXR Dyna Comp is a very ubiquitous compressor pedal. It’s not hard to see why. It excels at what it does at a reasonable price. The controls are simple: just output and sensitivity (compression). This can be viewed as a deficiency, but the Dyna Comp’s proponents see it as a matter of taste. For example, MXR’s popular Phase 90 phaser pedal is loved by many because it’s single knob is so easy to use. Similarly, the Dyna Comp offers an attractive, if somewhat pared down palette of sounds in a very accessible design.

MXR Custom Comp CSP202 Review

MXR’s CSP202 Custom Comp is a relatively new addition to their lineup. On the surface it looks like a Dyna Comp painted white, but the Custom Comp is a different animal altogether. Inside its slightly lighter chassis are two small pots controlling attack and tone. The footswitch has been replaced with one of much higher quality as well, though the general build style remains the same as any MXR pedal.
