With its extremely silky sound and unrivaled simplicity of controls it’s still one of THE go-to weapons for most engineers across the world when it comes to vocals or bass. But obviously it will shine on many other instruments that gain from its unique compression behavior and sonics. With this chassis kit – a faithful re-creation of the vintage design, the awesome and extremely detailed, fully illustrated step by step guide & wiring layout and the bill of materials with all links to every single component you’ll need, you are finally able to add this legendary tube opto compressor to your outboard arsenal without spending a fortune, but yet remaining a 100% up to par with the original legend in terms of quality, sound & looks.
PLEASE NOTE: The chassis kit is designed for the original UTC HA-100x input- and UTC A-24 output transformer, so you could also go all vintage if you want to. In case you want to go with the replacements suggested in the BOM by Sowter, you need the use the Sowter adapter plates (included).
Also if you wanna use a vintage UTC A-10 input transformer instead of the HA-100x we offer an adapter plate for that as well.
