Nice pedal

Bought mainly for my bass rig which it does awesome with. Can add tons of sustain and or crush the peaky dynamics. Which is great because hey, that is what it is made for doing. The Mix knob works well but what I was really surprised by was the level knob and how well the pedal works with guitar. Crank the level and you are in full on tubes pushed overdrive territory! And, it's not bad at all! While you're at it dial it in so the smallest note becomes a never ending ring! Now I am thinking of adding one to my guitar pedal boards for a lead boost sustain effect. In short, very impressed Artist, This is my third Artist pedal (Have the Time Travel delay and Green Scream overdrive) and I am still impressed! If you are on the fence, just have a go! Honestly you probably aren't going to regret it especially at this price! And Artist, please do an actual wah pedal ;)

[This is brief recap of an earlier review I wrote for this pedal, but which somehow disappeared from the AG site a couple of days ago, so I’m having another try …..] The MP108 Compressor is one of four (4) Artist micro pedals I’ve bought so far — I have the MP102 Reverb, the MP105 Chorus, the MP108 Compressor, and the MP110 Boost. My primary motivation, I confess, is wanting to make more space on my very crowded pedalboard — I play bass, 6- and 12-string guitar, mando, and baritone uke, so the board just kinda, well, grows! ☺ These “micro” pedals really are tiny — even if you’re accustomed to using the odd “mini” pedal, it’s not until you see these things that you realise that good things do come in v-e-r-y small packages! (I’ve ditched a series of larger pedals in favour of these.) However, despite the diminutive dimensions, the functionality is right up there with bigger boxes. The MP108 has Mix, Attack, Level, and Compression controls, and these provide enough variation to get the sound you need. A couple of features I particularly like (besides the size): (a) the semi-opaque cover over the controls means you can set the required values and then not worry about their being bumped and changed accidentally; (b) the provision of both rubber and Velcro attachment options for secure placement on your board shows that the designers are thinking about what musos need. Of course, at this size, there’s no room for a battery, so you’ll need to run the pedal from your board power. I’m using the MP108 with a Fender MandoStrat (electric mando) into a Mesa Boogie amp.

Yet another great pedal in the micro range

I recently purchased one of Artist's MP!10 micro boost pedals (see my review of that elsewhere on this site if you're interested) and, having been impressed with both its micro size and inbuilt features, I decided to update my pedalboard with some more gems from the same stable — an MP105 Chorus, and also this MP108 Compressor. (Yes, I already owned other chorus and compression pedals, but I liked the idea of "de-crowding" my pedalboard, and adding some extra variable controls (well, that was my excuse to my wife, anyway! :-) ..... Like the MP110, this pedal is so small that you really have to see it to appreciate what they've done in such a tiny package — in fact, this one takes up less than half the space occupied by my previous compressor! Despite that, it still has adequate controls — Mix/Attack/Level/Comp — and, being True Bypass, doesn't interfere when you don't want it to. The range of compression settings is quite acceptable — I'm using the MP108 with a couple of Fender MandoStrat electric mandos (4- and 8-string), into a Mesa Boogie amp. As with the MP110, this one comes with rubber or velcro attachments for fitting to your board. Because of the small size, there's no room for a battery, so you'll need 9V board power to run it, but any half-serious muso will have that anyway ..... I haven't come across pedals quite like this before, and I have to assume that Artist have gone out and found a manufacturer to make a whole range of micro gear with excellent features at a reasonable price. I reckon they've succeeded admirably. Maybe, just maybe, these three pedals won't be the last of Artist's micro gear I buy (now that I have more space on my pedalboard) — I need to talk to my wife! :-)
