Product Overview

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

    Wampler Ego Compressor

    Posted by Ken Hammack on Jun 27th 2019

    At first I was not sure, I had the gain boost knob on my amp on medium setting (Carr Mercury V) and there was some noise but then I turned the gain off and the tone was very clear and sharp, real good for a Nashville style attack. I had the volume knob at a little less than half, the sustain knob at about a third (don't get carried away with this knob), tone at about half, attack at about 1 O''clock, and blend at half. That seemed to be the sweet spot for me. A nice addition to one's pedal board and tone capabilities.
