Our day with Brian Wampler in the Sam Ash Studio continued as he presented us with expert insight into his Mini Ego Compressor pedal. The first thing that you’ll see is that this pedal is identical to the Wampler Ego Compressor, but by turning the Attack and Tone knobs into toggle switches, they were able to minimize the overall footprint of this pedal. He’ll show you just how versatile the Mini Ego is especially considering the clean blend which lets you add as little or as much compression as you want to the overall mix. You can have all the benefits of compression while still blending back in your clean tone for added dynamic flexibility. Brian will show you all this and more as we shine a spotlight on the Wampler Mini Ego Compressor.
