I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about the EBS MultiComp compressor, so I thought I would bring it up today. Again, this was mentioned on last Friday’s Pedal Line Friday. Apparently bass players have been going nuts about this. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find great videos on it.. but I did find a few.
Here is the official description:
The EBS MultiComp is a high-performance, true dual-band analog compressor pedal. It gives discerning bassists a choice between rack-quality solid state, tube simulation, and multi-band compression modes in a stage-ready pedal format. It has a compression level knob, gain level knob, and an active/passive signal switch.
EBS bass effect pedals are designed to preserve the entire frequency range of your bass signal, use noiseless FET switching, are suitable both for studio and live use, feature robust construction, and are easy to use.

I found this glowing recommendation (but not a review) by Jeff Pevar (video by EBSSweden):
I also found this interesting video where the reviewer is playing the EBS MultiComp, but punching in a BBE Sonic Stomp. I wish there was a moment when everything was bypassed to see how the EBS MultiComp affected the signal. Video is by entropman.
