This is another OTA pedal modeled after the classic Ross compressor. While it will set you back a bit more in terms of price than the Xotic pedal above it also gives you more control options, letting you customize the effect to perfectly match your needs.

All Wampler pedals are constructed by hand in the United States. The build quality is consistently solid—whenever you buy a Wampler pedal, you know you’re getting a good one. The Ego Compressor has an impressively quiet operation, with almost no extra noise no matter how you set it.

Now get this:

In terms of the feel and transparency of the effect, it stays true to the Ross Compressor tradition.

The Wampler Ego is a great guitar compressor if you’re looking for a pure and transparent OTA tone. For some players, though, the improved tone doesn’t quite justify the higher price tag. If you need heavier compression, this pedal can provide it, and without any coloration of your sound. If you just want to even out your tone, the Wampler Ego might be more pedal than you need.
