Took advantage of the Labor Day sale at Musicians Friend and picked up a Wampler Ego Compressor. This is my first compressor pedal. Over the past year I've been getting into the whole chicken pickin' thing...and now I have two Teles and a Fender Princeton Reverb Reissue. I really didn't know if I needed a compressor...but I figured I would give one a try. I play at home for the most part and can't always crank the volume, so I was hoping this might help a bit. The pedal arrived today and I've been playing it all afternoon...and I've learned a lot. While the super rubbery compressed tone can be fun for a bit, I discovered I prefer to preserve the natural tone of my Teles as much as possible. After tinkering for a bit (and watching my Daniel Donato instructional video and looking at his Wampler settings during the gear portion) I think I've found the sweet spot for me. I have it set where it evens my playing out just enough while preserving the stock sound. That blend knob works wonders! Here are my settings (with my PRRI set for bedroom volume...between 2 and 3. Using an Eminence GA10‑SC64 speaker): Sustain - 9 o'clock Tone - 3 o'clock (I turn this down if I'm playing louder...this keeps the clarity at low volumes) Attack - 10 o'clock Volume - Noon (but varies again on how loud I can play) Blend - 10 o'clock This little bit goes a long way! I'm pretty pleased so far. These settings act more as a boost I think with just a little compression. I dig it!
