What's up everyone, I found this little fella used online and snagged it: The previous owner bought it as a backup for his main compressor pedal but never used it so this thing is basically new. I've been thinking about adding compression to my pedalboard for quite a while now because my cleans sounded a bit weak, I play a JCM 2000 DSL 100 with my band and since I mainly EQ the Red channel to sound good (we play mostly old school Hard Rock covers) the Green channel that I use for cleans naturally suffers from the shared EQ. So I got it yesterday just in time before band practice, put it on my board and tried it out. I must say I am really impressed. The blend knob on this thing lets you dial in the processed sound as much as you need to and still leaves you with the option of retaining your unprocessed tone to not completely kill dynamics. The 2 minitoggles are simple and do their job, maybe less versatile than the full grown Ego but for my purposes the simpler approach is better. I like to plug in and play, I'm not a fan of tweaking all the time. Two applications I used it for with the band is "Another Brick in the Wall" where I play the clean strumming parts and for that it really helped to make the chords pop and sound fuller in the mix. We also play "Road Back Home" by Zakk Wylde where I play the intro piano part on guitar and for that again it made me stand out more. Add some Chorus and you have a lovely and jangly clean tone. Now the third song the Ego was really crucial for is David Bowies "Heroes", or rather the Hollywood Vampires version of it. You have that sustaining and droning lead line in the background that carries the whole song and we checked out some live vids where an EBow was used for that. Since I don't own one what I would do is switch to my lead channel and fiddle with my Delay pedal to have notes repeat longer, stand in front of my amp until I got the feedback. No need for that anymore with the Compressor. I just hit it on with my lead sound and I can be 5 meters away from the amp, I get the harmonic singing endless sustain that carries through the whole song. Awesome! I also tested it out at home alone with some clean and lightly overdriven tones. It really helps to get those long sustaining notes, clean it's like Gilmours sound, lightly overdriven it gives you great BB King style leads with warm and buttery singing leads. How I have lived without this effect so far is beyond me. Also big kudos to the small dimensions. I have a TC Electronics Spark Mini, the Mini Polytune and now the Ego Mini, I am seriously tempted to build an all Mini effects pedalboard so I have less weight in my hands I need to lug around. Just because it's small doesn't mean it sounds bad! It fit right in between my SD-1 and my Tuner: So yeah, that's it. I am very happy with this purchase, I will fiddle around with it some more but the Wampler Ego Mini is a great pedal. If you have never used a compressor pedal before, give it a shot. I sure know now what I have been missing out on. Cheers!
