    • Universal Audio 1176LN Compressor (x2)

      Universal Audio 1176LN Compressor

      Billed in the 1968 release as a “true peak limiter with all transistor circuitry and superior performance on all types of program material," the 1176’s major selling point was its ultra-fast attack time — a mere 0.00002 seconds at its fastest setting. It also offered contemporary design, featuring knobs with clear surrounds, pushbuttons, and a brushed aluminum face panel with a blue stripe near the VU meter — none of those then typical big Bakelite knobs in sight.

    • API 550A Discrete 3 Band EQ

      API 550A Discrete 3 Band EQ

      Few equalizers enjoy the respect and admiration of the coveted API 550A. Designed by the now-legendary Saul Walker in the late '60s, the discrete 550A was first used as a modular OEM equalizer. As the industry rapidly embraced the sonic quality of the 550A, it quickly found its way into many custom console designs by Frank DeMedio and other leading engineers. Many of these consoles are still in use today.

    • API 550B Discrete 4 Band EQ

      API 550B Discrete 4 Band EQ

      Based on API's original 550 from the late '60s, the API 550b is a continuation of the EQ that played a major role in the history of music recording, but with an additional filter band and several new frequencies. Incorporating API's exclusive circuitry and proprietary components (such as the legendary API 2520 Op Amp), the 550b artfully blends the past with the present.

The amplifiers were also used in many EMI circuits of the time. This version was remade from original design notes and circuit board drawings, provided by Abbey Road and EMI to ensure extreme authenticty!
