Hi, all
I wonder if there is any update or news about which compressor sounds the best for that classic 1960s Beatles and Byrds sound? :D

This is sometimes a touchy subject given that there is a pedal out there specifically designed for this...

I am a big fan of the Dynacomp, but they are noisy. I don't use compression anymore, but that was my go-to pedal.

I like the built-in compressor of the Line6 P.O.D. 2.0.

Digitech Main Squeeze is versatile and it's as good as anything else I tried. I use a rack mounted compressor/gate now though...

Hi !.. 25 years ago Here in Chile I bought my first comp, vintage mxr dyna... For all those years I thought it was the best, I still think it is great...the I do some research and I loose a lot of money with the Strymon Ob1, with the xotic compressor..I really hate both... Then the mxr custom comp, I hate it more. And again and again Im going back to my old Mxr Dynacomp.... Until I discover(very lately) that Peter Bucks used the Ibanez Compressor from his Ibanez rack unit , so I dont buy this rack I only buy a 1984 Ibanez Cp9... And gentlemen, with this my Rick 330 6 Jetglo sounds almost identical to Bucks thru my vox tube amp..!!... This little magical box takes out the best sonic qualities from my beloved guitar....
Sorry my poor english ...
Regards

I've been using a Janglebox JB2 for a few years now though I've also tried my 330/12 through a Boss Dynacomp and the various compressors on my Zoom Gx3 multi fx pedal. I prefer the JB2 but hasten to add that I want that 60s chime and jangle that this box was designed for. It gets that on the first setting with tone control and the boost button is great for standing out even further for those Turn Turn Turn solo moments (and it's great for live work). But really any decent compressor that will allow you some leeway and a good even tone will do your Ric some fine service.

I've been using the Wampler Ego. A lovely versatile compressor with a blend control to let some dry signal through to give some serious sustain and body whilst maintaining some up front attack. A really nice pedal.
