OVERVIEW

The industry standard in guitar pedal compression, new and improved for even more control.

Now widely regarded as the industry standard in guitar pedal compression, the Ego Compressor brings a new level of control to what is expected and needed by today's guitar players.

What does a compressor do? A compressor adds an element of control to your playing level – it will bring the quieter parts up and the louder parts down. While an ordinary compressor pedal can give you an element of control, a great compressor will give you the “feel” that other average compressors lack. If you’ve played a great tube amp when it’s being pushed hard, you’ll know what a great natural compression feels like.

When Wampler designed this pedal, the focus was ensuring the playing dynamics could be retained and that the compressor didn’t color the tone at all. By incorporating a clean blend, it allows your original signal to be blended back in so you can get all the benefits of a great compressor (picking up the notes that aren’t as strong and increasing sustain) but have the option to remove the squash at the front. With this control, you can have full country squash or open studio level parallel compression.

So, with a comprehensive array of controls and a core tone that is pure, you won’t find a compressor that works as perfectly as an “always on” or as “an effect” and is more highly regarded than the Ego Compressor from Wampler Pedals.

Nice unit, but seems to have failed

Comments about Wampler Ego Compressor Pedal:

I have tried many Comps, - all left something to be desired and I tired with them soon enough. I have had this Comp on my board for 2yrs, and it is really quite nice. Until last week - when the sound went from great to muddy. Gonna contact Wampler and see if they can get this thing fixed or replaced. Will report back.

Things happen, so, I am not surprised that sometimes pedals fail. I did buy a Mini Ego in the interim while this gets sorted out. Perhaps I will keep that???? And eventually sell the replacement unit. We shall see. Stay tuned.

Ideal Optical Compressor

Comments about Wampler Ego Compressor Pedal:

Since there are approximately 4-5 compression pedals available. The Ego is an optical style. It offers a mild blend that is transparent which is best in preserving ones sound. The blend control gives the player flexibility in tone. For example, Boss Comp/Sust. adds color where EGO doesn't.
