Drawmer 1968??
« on: April 28, 2004, 05:47:58 pm »

I'd heard about the possibility of this compressor-only version of the Drawmer 1969 a while ago, but have heard no news recently

anyone know if/when this compressor will become available and, if so, what the street price will be?

thanks

Only one "approval" stage left... we've signed off on the prototype, just need to sign off on a production unit and it'll be on the street... what I heard before was most excellent, I'm going to assume that the "production unit" will be a rubber stamp thing [they usually are]... so I'd guess that you'll see these at your favorite dealers in about 3 weeks... 4 weeks tops.

Is it an exact reproduction of the compressor section of the 1969 sans mic pres & DI?  Thanks.

For the most part... there were a couple of things added... like the "Big" switch is now on each channel individually, there is some meter stuff, and some PSU stuff... nothing major, but stuff I wanted.  It's also going to be 1RU instead of two, which for me, as someone who travels quite a bit, was a biggie.

It's going to street for $2,150... when it was originally proposed we thought it was going to run around $2,250... but we were able to get the price down without cutting any corners [and actually adding a couple of features], so we're all pretty stoked about it...
