Gasjunkie, what else do you know about the history of this thing?
Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're probably right.


Yup that's me!

I am in Hayward, CA. which is also part of the tri-city area.

at least it was  mentioned  in some other posts :)

Unfortunately, I don't know the history of it. I purchased it from a guy in Santa Rosa, CA. We met in person.

After further usage on my Fender J-Bass, I can tell you that the compressor/De-esser characteristics start to pick up in Fast/Slow Mode when attenuating the Gain Reduction and Slope while fixing the Threshold to the 7 o'clock position . There's a fuzz that will really start to add the character which is pretty unique to this piece, definitely from the transformers. When you sweep the Slope knob, things get interesting depending on which mode you're in. I was finding some really good sweet spots with my J Bass.

Thanks for reading! ;D

possibly, attenuation of gain compression between 2 of the 6sk7’s

Fun unit for a gritty Motown thump!


Wonder if the balance is a tube balance pot.......? 6sk7

Nice unit!
