Mnats 1176 Rev A Blue Stripe Compressor

Projects > Mnats 1176 Rev A Blue Stripe Compressor

The Rev A “Blue Stripe” PCB is a replica of the original and extremely rare Urei 1176 Revision A compressor. ┬áThe revision A was unique in using FETs as the first active element in the pre and line amps instead of bipolar transistors. Big name (and big budget) engineers such as Chris Lord-Alge have voiced the opinion that the rev A is special among 1176 revisions, and have in turn driven the price for originals to heights of raging insanity. ┬áMnats’ PCB is the first to make this design available beyond the extremely limited number of vintage units.
