Flexible Compressor That Keeps Your Tone Intact

Put the Wampler Ego Compressor in your guitar's signal chain, and you'll tame your dynamics without sacrificing tone. Dial in the Ego Compressor to its sweet spot for your rig, and you'll get the same squeeze you'd expect from a cranked tube amplifier, without losing definition or clarity. Most pro guitarists have a compressor in their chain to thicken their signal, control signal peaks, and lengthen sustain. You'll be amazed at how much tone you can pull out of your guitar with the Wampler Ego Compressor.

Wampler Ego Compressor Pedal Features:
  • True-bypass compressor/sustain pedal
  • Blend control lets you combine your dynamic un-effected signal with the compressed signal
  • Tone control brings back high frequencies that may be affected by high compression levels
  • Handmade in the USA
  • Power via 9V battery or standard 9V power supply (sold separately)
Squeeze every ounce of tone out of your guitar, with the Wampler Ego Compressor!

Definitely worth it!

This is my first compressor pedal. I had avoided the effect for years. Now, for clean tones, this is an always on pedal for me. It just makes it so much better. The sustain and chime are excellent. What makes it a real winner is the blend control. I put the sustain at about 1 O'clock, tone and attack nearly fully clockwise, and the blend about noon. It just has amazing 'make everything sound better' effect to my tone. I have not experimented with it much with overdriven or distorted tones (as they tend to compress the signal anyways) but I will get to it. I put the pedal first in my chain. For late night bedroom playing, you can use the volume control to get great tones at low volumes too. As with any compressor, cranking the sustain knob clockwise will add some noise to your signal. The setup described above is very quiet, noise wise, especially at bedroom levels.

Really Impressive!

I feel like I have so much control, especially with the blend feature. You can tastefully change your compression without feeling like it's compromising your sound in anyway. I'm able to get long sustain and at the same time have a real dynamic sound!

Ego compressor

What a pedal!! I bought this to replace my Boss Compressor/Sustainer. This pedal really kicks it's ***. The sound is awesome and build quality 100%. It's now one of my favorite pedals. It's going to be hard to beat this pedal. In my opinion, it's the best compressor on the market. I've tried other Wampler pedals as well, and I must say, they build some of the best pedals there is. I highly recommend this pedal and also all the other pedals from Wampler. If this pedal don't satisfy you, then nothing else will.

This pedal should be required to be in your pedal board!!

I never had a compressor in my board, and never thought I needed one.. That was until I met Brian Wampler and saw him do a pedal demo show...this pedal adds so much body to your tone, it makes your other pedals and your amp sound 100 times better... Great for using to enhance your clean tone and great for mixing with overdrive.... There is nothing more to say other than stop reading this review and order your ego compressor asap!

Best comp I've ever played. Incredible versatility and precisely everything you would want a comp to be. Completely satisfied. Compressor pedal shopping is done. :)

The Wampler Ego Compressor is the kind of pedal you notice the most when it ISN'T on. The blend knob (my favorite feature) allows me to dial in sweet tones without overwhelming the natural sound of my guitar.
