Monday – Wampler Mini Ego Compressor

Now widely regarded as the industry standard in guitar pedal compression, the Mini Ego Compressor brings a new level of of control to what is expected and needed by today’s guitar players, in a mini Format.

What does a compressor do? A compressor adds an element of control to your playing level – it will bring the quieter parts up and the louder parts down. While an ordinary compressor pedal can give you an element of control, a great compressor will give you the “feel” that other average compressors lack. If you’ve played a great tube amp when it’s being pushed hard, you’ll know what a great natural compressor feels like.

Based on the incredible success of the original Ego but featuring switches for tone (dark and bright) and attack (slow and fast) you can tweak your tone to a standard of a pedal twice its size. By keeping the clean blend of the original, your original signal to be blended in so you can get all the benefits of a great compressor (picking up the notes that aren’t as strong and increasing sustain) but you have the option to remove the squash at the front by bringing the bypassed signal in. With this control, you can have full country squash or open studio level parallel compression. Basically, the Mini Ego gives you complete control of every aspect of your compression.

So, with a comprehensive array of controls and a core tone that is pure, you won’t find a compressor that works perfectly as an “always on” or as “an effect” that is more highly regarded than the Mini Ego from Wampler Pedals.

Friday – Coppersound Telegraph Stutter

If Samuel Morse built killswitches.

The Telegraph Stutter encompasses one of the most simple audio effects in the most unique looking package. When the key is in its traditional resting position (up), audio is passed through fully unaffected. When the key is pressed (down), the audio is fully cut and no sound will pass through. The POLARITY SWITCH allows you to reverse the orientation. Rapidly tapping the key can result in a nice fully manual tremolo effect. Having full manual control over the rate of the cut means the effect can achieve unique sounds. The tremolo does not have to be set at a predetermined rate, nor does the pattern have to be of the traditional type. Knowing Morse code can yield fun, creative “patterns.” Being a hand controlled effect, there are more benefits than being foot controlled. A tremolo rate can be tapped while manually ramping the speed up or down. Placing the device on top of your amp directly before your amp input is a good place for it. When standing in front of your amp, you can get some fun feedback and chop that up with the Telegraph. It sounds even better with your favourite fuzz or OD! The straight key has two adjustments on it. One is to adjust the tension of the spring that pushes against the key to bring it back to resting position. The other is to adjust the height between the contact points that cut the signal. This is a HAND CONTROLLED effect pedal. The Telegraph Stutter is hand made in Easton, MA
