    After my MXR M87 Bass Comp decided to take a break (foot switch might not be working right? I don't know) I thought I'd try the Wampler Ego. My local guitar shop is a Wampler dealer so I was able to find it pretty easily.

    It is a different beast from the M87. I would consider the M87 more of a utility compressor, it adjusts the volume but has very little character of its own. I liked that ok but I wan to try something new and decided on the Ego.

    So far I'm happy, it has a blend which the M87 doesn't have. It also has a bit of saturation on its own that sounds really nice. I'll need to spend some more time with it but I'm really liking it so far.

    If anyone else has some experience with this pedal feel free to share your observations or anything you've discovered in using the pedal, I'll make sure to do the same!
