FET COMPRESSOR

Classic Vintage Compressor

FET COMPRESSOR is a one channel compressor / limiter. His sound has become a “classic vintage” after years of use in many and famous music productions such as, for example, used on vocals in the best-selling album of the history Michael Jackson’s Thriller.

FET compressor is particularly aggressive and gives greater presence and warmth to the track on which it is applied. Particularly suitable on snare drums, vocals, guitars. Fet Compressor has the NUKE option, reproducing the old style aggressive compression. It comes equipped with balanced XLR input and output, Vu-Meter with a switch to observe the output level or gain reduction caused by compression. It occupies one rack unit and is produced in black colour.

Machines with similar characteristics: UREI 1176 (Revision G), Purple Audio MC77, Empirical lab Distressor.

Kit Version

The kit comes complete with ALL the parts needed to assemble the compressor, including Cinemag audio transformer, the chassis with the front screen-printed, a made in Italy toroidal transformer). It lacks only the power cable to run the internal connections.

Complete instructions are provided to assemble and calibrate; the assembly is very simple but it is recommended for those who already have a basic minimum of confidence with the electronics.

Dudemusic can NOT provide assistance on assembling and / or machine you assembled and presenting operational problems.
