Wampler Mini Ego Compressor
The Ego Compressor mini has the same circuit as it's big brother. So you can get the exact same compression tones but save loads of space on your pedalboard.
Instead of having an attack knob, Wampler has made it very easy to find a useable compression threshold by simply having a slow or fast attack. A fast attack is what you would use for a spanky country tone or any fast riffing. The slow compression will provide a more natural feel, and by combining the slow attack with the blend knob you can really retain the dynamics of your playing and use the Ego to enhance that. The blend knob dials in compression on to your dry signal.
The other toggle is a tone control which will either be bright or dark and you can use that to match your guitar's pickups. So if you have bright single-coils and want to tame those a bit, then the dark switch would be used. If you have dark humbuckers that need to be brightened, then you'd use the bright switch.
