"Pye-type" compressor from Korby?
« on: October 18, 2004, 12:50:24 pm »

Saw this listing on the front page of the Vintage King site:
(about 1/2 way down the page)
http://www.vintageking.com/
Unfortunately, the link just takes you to a listing of Korby mics, no info (or even mention of) on the the compressor.

Does anyone know anything about these comps?  Either the originals or Korby's new "tribute" models?

Hi

Here's some data on the original Pye compressors

 http://www.proaudioeurope.com/london/vintage/compressor/pye_ compressor.html

If you click on the photo it enlarges to show you several views. I have a feeling that the left hand upper concentric knob is missing in these photos.

Smile

PS They were also discussed on Gearslutz..

I am too interested in these new comps. made by Korby. They also have 3 new mics coming out according to Vintage King which should be interesting as well. One of my teachers has the KAT 4, which is the microphone with the swapping heads. I love the sound of that. I can't wait.

Something around 3.5k - 4k is what Vintage King quoted me.
