Justin Meldal-Johnsen is known for his work as bassist and musical director with Beck since 1996. In 2008 Justin joined Nine Inch Nails for their award-winning "Lights In The Sky" world tour, as well as the "Wave Goodbye" farewell tour. He has recorded with a wide variety of other artists such as Gnarls Barkley, Air, Tori Amos, Garbage, Dixie Chicks, Dido, Goldfrapp, Macy Gray, Ladytron, They Might Be Giants, Charlotte Gainsbourg, and many more. Additionally, Justin writes and records music for film and tv, as well as producing records for artists such as M83, Neon Trees, Division Day, and Moving Units.

Recently, he had this to say about the MXR Bass Compressor: "Historically, compressor pedals give me the heebie jeebies. So when this pretty pedal showed up sounding all natural and punchy with a cool gain-reduction meter, quelle surprise! Nice job MXR."

"I'm a long-time aficionado of chorus effects, but it's sometimes tricky getting the sound to jive just right the low-end of bass guitar. The new MXR Bass Chorus is a great solution. It not only retains the lows well, but also gives a particularly rich and unique chorus effect. Great on synth bass too. Highly recommended."
