UA 1176, LA2a, LA3a or emperical labs distressor (EL is basically a modded 1176) are real nice on your mix for various sounds. If I had to choose a workhorse compressor I'd pick the 1176 or distressor. They work great on just about everything for mixing if you know what you're doing.
He's looking for something to use across the mix.
He'd need 2 1176s or Distressors.

I can vouch for the 2500 here, and also the Dramwer 1968 ME
