Re: Good analog compressor that doesn't cost an arm & leg?

That's a good budget you have there.
The BSS 402. These things are serious and absolutely not about character/harmonic distortion/artifacts/vintage vibe-warmth BS...

They are effective and transparent. I used a whole rack of them at a friend's studio and on PA tech gigs. I'd get that.

As for compressors that sound "cool" to you earswhen "abusing" them... it's like distortion pedals. You mileage varies invariably.

For that money you could get two used units/ four channels for your four busses... and be one happy camper with money left over.
