Product Description

Now widely regarded as the industry standard in guitar pedal compression, the Mini Ego Compressor brings a new level of control to what is expected and needed by today's guitar players, in a Mini Format.

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 compressor feels like.

Based on the incredible success of the original Ego but featuring switches for tone (dark and bright) and attack (slow and fast) you can tweak your tone to a standard of a pedal twice its size. By keeping the clean blend of the original, your original signal to be blended 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 you have the option to remove the squash at the front by bringing the bypassed signal in. With this control, you can have full country squash or open studio level parallel compression. Basically, the Mini Ego gives you complete control of every aspect of your compression.

So, with a comprehensive array of controls and a core tone that is pure, you won’t find a compressor that works perfectly as an “always on” or as “an effect” that is more highly regarded than the Mini Ego from Wampler Pedals.

Wampler Mini Ego Compressor Pedal Features

  • Built in the U.S.A
  • High grade components picked for their superior sound and response
  • True Bypass Switch - A true-bypass switching footswitch that completely bypasses the signal when the pedal is off.
  • Volume - This control adjusts the output level of the Mini Ego Compressor. There's plenty of volume on tap, so whether you want to go farther than your input level or just make sure it can do unity volume (the same level of signal going out as you feed it, when active), you're covered. The Sustain and Blend controls will have an effect on the total output volume, so you're probably better off waiting to adjust the Volume until you've dialed in the other controls.
  • Sustain - Sustain controls how hard the Ego Compressor works to maintain the signal within its compression threshold. Higher sustain settings will let your notes go on for a very long time, but be careful, because higher sustain settings also raise the noise floor. If you are running your compressor after overdrive or distortion, you will want to pay close attention to the Sustain knob and maybe back off of it quite a bit so as not to raise the amount of noise to unbearable levels.
  • Attack - Attack controls how quickly the compression action starts to take effect. At the slower attack settings, it will more gradually begin to compress the signal, which can leave your early note less affected. With the quicker attack setting, it gets a noticeable pop-in, because it clamps down on the high - signal level of the initial note and then quickly raises the output level after that to begin its compression action.
  • Tone - Quite a simple one this, to the left the control is darker and to the right it’s brighter. There is no hard and fast rule with this, it all depends on your guitar and your amp.
  • Blend - Having established that the Ego Compressor has everything you need to dial in a fantastic sounding compressed signal, now it's time to learn about the Blend functionality. At about noon on the Blend knob, the compressed signal and the (enhanced, boosted, and slightly warmed) clean signal are even in level. Because the signals are in parallel inside the pedal before mixing down to mono at the output, the Blend control acts as a mixer knob. At 50/50, your clean signal's natural note attack is almost 100% unaffected by the Ego Compressor, but once the clean signal naturally fades, the Ego Compressor's compressed signal seamlessly fills in the gaps. This is a process no ear will hear because it's perfectly even and smooth, and the end result is all the benefits of a great compressor but a real, authentic transient. Counterclockwise, you get less and less Ego Compressor and more and more clean signal. Clockwise, more and more Ego Compressor and less and less clean signal. It's not too hard to grasp, but it is the sort of thing that rewards careful experimentation to see what all it can do before you settle in on what it is specifically that you want to do
