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.
A Modern Classic
The Ego Compressor has become a modern classic and has become the first choice for musicians of every genres, all over the world. It doesn’t matter if you need full country squish, a tone fattener, something to level out the dynamics or just a completely transparent boost, the Ego will suit you perfectly. It’s the kind of compressor you don’t realize is on until your tone disappears when it’s turned off.
With the Ego Compressor but you have ALL the control you need. Attack, Release, Tone, Volume and the all important Blend control, you can tailor the Ego Compressor to slot perfectly in to your rig. From full country squish, to punchy dynamics, everything you need is right there.
It’s not just for Country
Although compression is loved by country players, so many other players are using it to apply fatness and control to their tone… The Ego Compressor allows you to retain your tone, retain your dynamics, but still give you the benefits. Have a look at the pro players boards, you’ll find compression, it’s what makes them sound so awesome.
