Now widely regarded as the industry standard in guitar pedal compression, the Ego Compressor brings a new level
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 we 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.

Why was my package refused?
There are a number of reasons your package could be refused by us, including:
It does what it is supposed to do, without brightening or thinning out your basic tone. All 5 **** are useful in shaping your sound. The tone **** could have a wider swing, but, even so, the pedal sounds fantastic! It has sustain to spare. I am very happy abd impressed with Wampler's take on this pedal.
I had at least three of these compressors. I had them when a separate person made each one. They evolved into better compressors. I never tried one of the smaller ones. They had a power ****, a tone
****, an attack ****, a **** that turned more compression or less compression. And of course, a **** that adjusted the amount of compression. They worked better with an electric cord, instead of
a battery, because they went threw batteries so quick. Very quiet operation!
I wasn't a huge fan of compressors for a long time, however, after seeing a lot of guitarists whose tone I dig in and some new pedals being released (and well reviewed), I decided I should try a good one. After some research, I decided to get a Wampler Ego and I'm really happy with that.
The factors that made me get this one: low noise (if compared with other pedal compressors), dedicated sustain and attack **** and the blend **** that helped me to make my guitar sounds more natural, even if fairly compressed. With Ego, sounds like my American Select Strat gets the punch, bright and percussiveness I was looking for in some sound situations. Also, that compressor gives a 2nd personality to my D'Angelico Hollowbody,
This compressor is one of the best Ross compressors out there. I have had about 4 of them. I am disabled, so I needed money sometimes and I would sell one and pick up another one when I had the bucks. I did not have much use for the tone or blend ****, I left them both off. It took me awhile to get the pedal set like I wanted. The attack **** could give you a lot of different tones. When it first came out, it was super popular,
People seem to be excited about the smaller version now.
Ross-style comp that probably has decent noise level for most players but not good enough for my application. Kind of has a signature sound that goes well if your style is similar to Brent Mason. I didn't think the tone control or attack **** added much to the function. If you like this comp, the smaller, cheaper version could probably do just as well. Review is closer to 2.5 stars.
