Extensive compressor reviews and FAQ

Behringer BLE100: This is Behringer's clone of the Boss LMB-3. It is a nearly identical copy in both form and function, except for three things: The housing and footswitch are made of cheap, brittle plastic; the knobs sit on thin plastic stems; and there is a slightly higher amount of hiss. If you can't afford the $50 a used LMB-3 costs, here's a cheaper solution, and it's not bad; but you should realize that the LMB-3 will still be working twenty years from now. The BLE100 has been replaced by the current model BLE400; as far as I know they are the same thing.
 
Price in USD: used $5 to $15, new $25.
