I love 1176 compressors.
So much so that I have already built 2 Blackface Revision D 1176 clones from Hairball Audio
Now I will document here the new build of my Revision A Silverface 1176.
First – unpacking everything!!
This shot show the box plates and all the bags you get direct from Mouser – bags full of capacitors, resistors, diodes and transistors.
This may look a little daunting but there is nothing more rewarding than creating your own hardware.
Hairball Audio have a full step-by-step process on their website which makes the whole process way easier than it would be ordinarily.
Remember – I had never done anything like this before and built 2 working units so anyone can do it!
Check back for progress!
