For many electric guitar players, it is important to own a top quality compressor pedal in your rig. Brian at Wampler has developed the Ego Compressor effects pedal with "transparency" being at the forefront of its creation. The Ego Compressor gives you total control so that you can achieve a more natural compression that provides you with a versatile, clear tone output.
HANDBUILT IN THE USA
The Wampler Ego Compressor has been handbuilt in the USA using a range of high grade film capacitors and resistors. Its durable build and the controls it has on offer make it one of the most popular compressor pedals out there.
FIVE FUNCTIONAL CONTROLS
The Wampler Ego Compressor features five control dials which allow you to completely shape your tone. It works tirelessly to ensure that loud sounds can be brought down, while quiet sounds can be brought up.
The Ego Compressor has a Blend knob which is in fact a very important factor in ensuring your tone can be adjusted by blending the wet and dry signals as you experiment with its mixer functionality. This is also an ideal control to have if you're planning to play with a highly driven, dirtier sound.
The Sustain dial lets you alter between higher sustain for prolonged note delivery with a higher noise level, though this can be turned down if you are using it alongside a distortion pedal.
Attack is what controls the compression speed, so if you have it entirely clockwise it will take longer for the pedal to compress the signal. Just turn it anti-clockwise for quicker compression, perfect for some twangy chicken pickin' type tones.
The Tone dial is a remarkable part of the Ego Compressor, giving you either an ultimately clean sound or a more radiant, sparkling tone the more you turn it clockwise.
This particular Wampler pedal can be battery operated or you can plug it in using a 9v power jack barrel plug. The jacks sit at the top of the pedal making it ideal for any pedalboard. The Wampler Ego Compressor is without doubt one of the best stomp box compressor effects pedals available.
