Cloning the ubiquitous Urie 1176 compressor
The unit to the left was my first build, and features
two channels of FET compression with electrically
balanced inputs and OEP transformer balanced outputs.
It also features the messiest wiring i have ever put together.
It has been modded with to provide a "slam" mode
(equivalent to "all buttons in" on the original 1176's)
and both channels sound fantastic.
But it must be said that the 3rd and 4th channels i built
(featuring Sowter input and output trannies on 3, and
Billington input and output trannies on 4) are much neater
