Mooer Yellow Comp review

Posted on 09/10/2014 by ozzy in The Blog

I wasn't very happy with my Boss CS-3 compressor for it was a bit noisy and added a typical squishy effect to my tone. Hence I started looking for a pedal with more even and smooth compression. I found a Mooer Yellow Comp which imitates the Diamond CPR-1. I haven't had an opportunity to play the Diamond, so I can't say how it compares. The Mooer offers mild optical compression with no squishy effect and no added coloration. It could better be described as a transparent tone enhancement. Just nice for improving my cleans.

Mooer Yellow Comp

All compressors will more or less raise the noise level depending on how they are set. My Boss CS-3 for example got noisy whenever Sustain knob was turned past 12 o’clock. The Mooer Yellow Comp has hardly any noticeable noise at all, even with its Comp control all the way up. Of course, all pedals on your pedal board will affect the overall noise that the compressor would amplify, but in my rig, the noise was perfectly bearable.

If you are after a nice sounding budget compressor with smooth attack and decay, then don't look any further. That being said, I wouldn't recommend it for country, where you usually want noticeable compression as an effect.
