The Wampler Ego Compressor is one of the brand's best sellers. This compressor has been a benchmark of its kind for years. An effect somewhat shunned by guitarists for lack of knowing how to adjust it at best. However, it can quickly become a centerpiece of your sound by helping you to magnify it. This is what the Ego offers you!

Externally, the Ego dresses in a beautiful blue dress. In terms of controls, we find: Volume, Sustain, Tone, Attack and Blend. The same functions as the Mini version, but with extended control over attack and frequency parameters. Inside, good quality PCB and switch.

On a clean channel, at 12:00, the Ego Compressor turns out to be quite "squashy" with a solid "mmppff" attack. The compression is quite marked and the release is very audible. This gives a strong sonic signature to the Ego. We feel a great influence of Dyna Comp in the design of the Ego and a very 80's side due to its sound color. But make no mistake, the Ego has some secret tips to make the difference. The Attack button has a nice effect on compression. It allows you to adjust the speed to recover a more or less attenuated attack, ideal for more modern compressions and less pronounced styles depending on the needs. The Tone helps reinforce the precision of the effect by brightening the attack. The Volume has a lot of reserve, so we won't hesitate to increase it while reducing the Sustain and playing with the Attack to use the Wampler Ego as a limiter or a Boost.
On a lead channel, this is where the Ego makes all the difference, thanks to its Blend which allows dry signal to be reinjected after the compression stage. For those who want discreet but effective compression (typically what we need with distortion to gain sustain and fluidity, without impacting the attack too much) we will not hesitate to slightly increase the Blend. We can thus mix the original signal and the compressed signal as desired.
Big problem with certain pedal format compressors, the noise level which tends to increase exponentially when you increase the degree of compression. Rest assured, the Ego does very well as long as we remain reasonable.

The Wampler Ego Compressor is one of the benchmarks on the market. It modernizes a great classic by adding more flexibility and correcting certain defects of the original circuit. a sure value at a more than reasonable price.
