Re: OT Fripp-Amplification (compressors)

Hi David -- can you expound on the 2 layers of compression (or compression in general). I have tried several compressors but just never got into using them with my guitar, I thought they killed the dynamics.

Personally - as a guitar player - I HATE the sound of my looping rig direct to monitors. 
I much prefer to go through stereo ((4x10) x2) bass cabs and 1000 watts of amplification feeding them.  
Smaller gigs - a JC 120 AND a Fender Bandmaster head into a 15 inch bass speaker. 
Really small locations, just the JC120.
And trust me I am hitting some crazy lows and hi's with my set-up.  
Having 2  layers of compression helps though! :-)
