Overall: Very transparent to the guitar tone, wide range of all controls to dial in any amount of compression effect or just go all clean boost. The blend control allows you to bring in your std signal and mix with compressed. I do not do the county thing but this makes your clean tones as well as gains sparkle with sustain and presence so much better than a clean boost effect. Really an amazing pedal. Wampler is just top shelf all the way!

Overall: I usually don't like compressors, but after listing to demo's on Youtube, I was willing to try Wampler's Ego Compressor. I am amazed on how good this one sounds. It is the most transparent compressor made today. You can get that country style squeeze as well, but I use mine left on and set to just sweeten the tone. It does that incredibly well. i have a lot of pedals that come and go on my board. This one, stays... If it got stolen, I would cry then order another one... Quick..

Overall: For a quality product, amazing they couldn't spend a few more cents on Phillips head screws made of metal hard enough that they wouldn't strip out on the very first attempt to open up the back of the box to replace the battery. These screws are so cheap and soft, it's like they're made of butter. Nuisance, now I have to get new screws to be able to use it.
