Yeah that's why I figured id do it. I got the Barber TPC as a gift. I planned on returning it and getting the Ego comp but I've enjoyed the Barber so much I never took it back. I've played egos quite a bit and they seem to have more "squish" on tap. The Wampler has the tone knob which helps fill in some of the top end that you lose at higher compressed settings but the Barber has two "subtlety" switches. One does the same thing, adds some top end back, but it also has a bass switch to get a nice percussive sound. I'm going to try and do a really comprehensive review. Like, each pedal on their own back and forth and then show them both before an overdrive and after an overdrive. I'm not trying to see if one is "better" than the other because it's so subjective. But the Barber is quite a bit cheaper and I think it'll hang with the Wampler. But there's a reason ever pedal board I see in Nashville has an Ego on it. I use to see a lot of the older tone press but the new compact TP hasn't caught on here like I though it would. Maybe it just needs more time. It's a really amazing pedal. I use it and a Durham Sex Drive always on for my clean sound and it's really good. With those two pedals I could get "my" clean sound out of any amp. It's super shimmery and sparkly but still warm, deep and complex. Especially for open chords. The Sex Drive helps add dynamics to those country double stops and chicken pickin in general. I set the Sex Drive with the level cranked and the drive way done and because of the barber I leave the comp switch in the off position. I keep saying I want another Sex Drive to use as a boost. Lol. But I'll probably just get an EQD Tone Job.
