Is there a big difference between guitar and bass compressors? And if so, what differs?

The reason I ask is that I have a Ibanez BP10 stomper that I don't use much at the moment, and I've been thinking about adding a compressor to my pedalboard (for guitar). The BP10 has three knobs, for Attack, Sustain and Level. Could I use that one with good result or should I look for something made specifically for guitars? I use my pedal baord mainly for gigs and rehersals.

Thank you for the quick answer. smile.gif
I was afraid that would be the case...

Anyway, any recommendations for a good compressor?

The boss is allright. But as far as I've heard the Keeley should be absolutely superb!

Expensive but good.

Would a bass compressor be noticeable used with a guitar? A lot of bass effects are cool used with guitars. Would it say, tighten up your bottom end? Or do nothing noticeable?

Boss compressor is very good but be sure there is a limiter compressor
and only compresso you need the second one cause the limiter is different effect
