Casino Owners - Do you use a compressor?

Hey all fellow Casino owners....

 

I'm toying around with the idea of getting a hold of a Janglebox for a Beatles project I'm working on. Just wondering, all you Casino players out there...are you using a compressor? If so, which one?

I'd Love to get a "Jangle Box!" No funds, for that, right now...unfortunately.

So, I use what I have...Boss CS-2, and CS-3. Sometimes, together, for a

really "squeezed" (Byrds) effect. I use it, primarily, on my Ric-12 string.

But, I use the CS-2, for 6-string, when needed, as well. Setting, is usually

completely different, for those 2 guitars. With the Rick, because it's used for

"Byrds" songs, mostly...the "Attack" knob is backed off, quite a bit. With a

6 String, the "Attack" knob, is (usually) on full. I ajust "Level," and "Sustain" as

needed, either way.

I've tried at least a dozen different compressors, and have found that for my Ric 12, the JangleBox works the best. So that's what I kept. As I added guitars to my collection I found that it sounds great with my Strat and my Casino, too. No reason to have more than one.

 

Maxon CP-9 (used); Boss CS-3; Orange Squeeze; 2 different MXR DynaComps; Art Levelar; Rockman (used); Carl Martin (used); DOD Milk Box; Barber Tone Press (used); Pigtronix Philosophers Tone and few others I can't remember. I never did try a Keeley but have heard good things about them. However, they are expensive.

The AC30 Top Boost setting on my Vox AD120VTH gives me enough jangle and compression to take me right to the authentic Revolver tones.Although I'd like to geta Jangle Box so I can get a more Ricky like tone from my old Vox Phantom XII.
