have been playing guitar for 23 years and just recently joined a
bandBror the first time in 15 years. I have dabbled with these pedals
before and have the Boss compression sustainer pedal, yet it has
always found it's way out of my pedal board and back on the shelf.
I have many distortion/overdrive options, I just rarely use them with the compressor. That said, some mild overdrive + compressor can be nice.
Most folks I know try to use compression like a drive or fuzz pedal...and that doesn't work. If you want a drive or fuzz, get a drive or fuzz.
My new small rig has a Morley wah/vol/distortion on it, with an auto-wah/filter sitting after the Morley, and an OCD sitting after the auto-wah - result is I can get a pretty far reaching set of tones by having the ability to have pre or post filtering drive or distortion...or I can get some really hairy Smashing Pumkins-esque type tone by turning both the distortion and drive on at the same time.
Really simple, no compressors used - runs into the clean channel of my amp. If I want to snap back to clean, I just stomp off...and I get a very nice Fender sounding cleany-twang.
