MXR Dyna Comp Deluxe, Builder’s Notes
The Dyna Comp Deluxe Compressor brings unprecedented control to the most iconic compression sound in the history of effects pedals. The original Dyna Comp Compressor has always been more than a utilitarian effect—guitar players have used its percussive tonality to enliven their tones for years.
The Dyna Comp Deluxe Compressor’s circuitry and updated control interface delivers that classic sound along with the ability to shape it and season it to your taste.
First, this pedal is built around the same CA3080 “metal can” integrated circuit that’s integral to the vintage performance of the script Dyna Comp Compressor and its quieter operation, greater transparency, and increased dynamic range.
Next, the Clean control lets you blend your unaffected signal with the compressed signal so that you can find the balance that works for you, and the Tone control allows for further refinement of the compressed signal. Use the Attack switch to toggle between a vintage style slow attack time and a modern style fast attack time.
Finally, the familiar Output and Sensitivity knobs control volume level and the length of sustain respectively. The Dyna Comp Deluxe Compressor gives you all you need to make this classic effect support the sound of your rig, from squishy ’70s compression to the open, transparent “light touch” compression favored by many modern players.
