The MXR Custom Comp is built from the finest components available and designed with a blend of modern and classic compressor technology. At the heart of the pedal resides the legendary and rare CA3080 “metal can” IC that delivers increased dynamic range, greater transparency, and quieter operation. In addition, the MXR Custom Shop design team included RF suppression components for interference-free operation, and an internal Attack control that allows fine tuning of the speed of the note’s initial attack. Combined with a TPDT (Triple Pole Double Throw) switch for true bypass and heavy duty pots, the MXR Custom Comp will provide years of high performance live and in the studio.

Here's what I settled on, for now, with my Jaguar: I have both wheels at about 10 o'clock with the Sensitivity cranked. Because the Jaguar has elaborate dual settings (rhythm and lead circuits) I can actually get 3 completely different overdrive sounds without changing anything on the pedals. (I have the MXR going into a Wampler Euphoria). Pretty versatile! I've actually never before been able to use the higher output rhythm circuit before, but it really comes together with that Trim wheel at 10 oclock. And as far that the Attack wheel, I think 10o'clock is giving me a good rhythm sound, I can get a little more "drip" out of my spring reverb from this amount of attack, and I get a wide range of styles covered.
This compressor does not have a huge amount of sustain at these settings, or maybe even in general. It has some. Noise is acceptable (it's compressing and this brings up whatever noise is there in the signal). Glad I have a quiet Jaguar with those hum-free pickups! So to sum up, I think this is a very refined and professional piece of equipment and it's going to give me more sounds out of what I already have. The only thing it may not do as well is "infinite sustain". That's not what I'm going for anyway, but something to be aware of.
Basically, this pedal makes my clean tone as fun, addictive, and playable as shredding on my big muff pi. If there is one thing I don't like about it, it's that when simply playing chords (no lead riffs) it hides some of my amp's presence and sparkle. Basically, a natural loud strummed open chord would start to clip a bit on my fender blues jr, (and sounds awesome), but when using the compressor and playing that same thing it brings down the signal volume (cause that's what a compressor does). I don't necessarily want my signal to be compressed all the time, just when doing lead lines. You can mess with the pedal's output volume though to get a volume that works for your sound. This can also be used for a small amount of clean boost, which ends up adding a tiny bit of gain. Would be great for stomping on before a solo to push your guitar up above the mix (and get the awesome sustain).
I've had this pedal for a few months now, and I'm very happy with it. The pedal sounds good with the internal attack and trim at 12 o'clock, but after a few times playing I wanted to see if I could fine tune the attack and trim to get the perfect sound for me. I'll admit it took a week or so of playing and adjusting to find the best setting. I don't mind that the adjustment wheels are on the inside because I don't need to change them anymore - set it and forget it! I'm sure the price would go way up to have four knobs on the outside. If you need to adjust the settings constantly, then don't whine about it! Get the Keeley and be done with it already! Otherwise, get the Custom Comp and start playing!
