TThe MXR Dyna Comp is one of the most popular compression pedals ever made. Its simplistic 2 control layout and great results made it an instant hit on the pedalboard of home players and pros alike. Now they have created a new Script version with an upgraded IC, which provides quieter operation, greater transparency and increased dynamic range.
Small but Mighty
The Script Dyna Comp like the regular Dyna Comp that came before has a simple set of two controls. The output which sets the overall volume level of the pedal meaning you can actually boost the volume of your guitar using this pedal and the sensitivity control. This acts as your compressor threshold and ratio in one, but in general the more you turn it up the more compressed your signal becomes.
Here's what MXR say about the Script Dyna Comp Compression Pedal
The Dyna Comp Compressor is famous for its first-rate, no-nonsense approach to tightening up your guitar signal and creating rich, full-bodied sustain. Like the Phase 90, this little red gem is a legend among its kind. The pedals produced in the mid-'70s are particularly prized for their unique sound and performance.
The Script Dyna Comp Compressor combines that old school sound with a couple upgrades for modern gigging convenience. Spec'd from our own 1976 Dyna Comp Compressor, this pedal is built around the rare CA3080 "metal can" integrated circuit (IC), which yields quieter operation, greater transparency, and increased dynamic range.
Thanks to its bypass status LED and AC power jack, you can put this pedal right on your board without worrying about whether the pedal is on or about to lose power.
