The Drawmer 1969 Vacuum Tube Compressor pre-amplifier derives from a collaboration between two of the audio industry’s most established names, Drawmer (UK) and Mercenary Audio (USA).
When Ivor Drawmer rose to the challenge of outspoken US producer/engineer ‘Fletcher’ of Mercenary Audio to build a special version of the famed Drawmer 1960 (used by Eric Clapton, Madonna, Sheryl Crow, Stevie Wonder, Bryan Adams and thousands of artists around the world) - both sides joined forces and the Drawmer 1969 preamp/compressor was born!
Retaining the concept of twin mic pre-amps, the Drawmer 1969 uses ‘Burr-Brown’ op amps for a silkier sound - and a polarity invert switch available in Instrument, Mic and Line modes increases versatility.
The Drawmer 1969 employs true Stereo Link operation with channel one’s Threshold, Attack and Release controls becoming master to both channels. Stereo Link also offers a BIG position which retains bass frequencies by rolling off the detection signal at 100 Hz minimising undesirable pumping during compression. Output Gain make-up can be independently controlled on each channel.
The Drawmer 1969 Vacuum Tube Compressor Pre-Amplifier incorporates new tube circuits designed to add warmth to mic/line signals, and the instrument (DI) pre-amp has its own tube stage enabling classic overdrive effects when inserting guitar, bass and other instruments - true to the original 1960 design.
