Anyone have opinions on compression pedals?

I need to add a decent compressor to my pedalboard for bass guitar. That said, I'd like to think more versatile, if possible, and find something that will work with more uses than just bass guitar.
Anyone have opinions? I've previously always used a big ol' rack mount unit when my whole rig was rack based, I'm more pedal based now as my rig (MarkBass) is so small and light, there is no need to add a rack for just one unit, as I already have a decent pedalboard with tuner, Sansamp, etc...

I'm assuming you want something that won't break the bank, haha. He's a career musician and engineer, so I'll try to pick his brain for something budget to middle of the road.
