Product Description


There is little doubt in the minds of many engineers and producers that vacuum tubes possess a unique sound quality providing a warmer, more alive sound. Combining eight active tube stages and the low noise and reliability of solid state electronics, the Drawmer 1960 provides the ultimate direct interface between the sound source and the recording medium.

The Drawmer 1960 is a two channel unit with each channel comprised of a completely natural sounding soft knee vacuum tube compressor and an extremely low noise microphone pre-amplifier with switchable 48 volt phantom power. A further auxiliary instrument pre-amp with EQ is also provided. This powerful combination of the classic valve circuit, offering unsurpassed tonality, and the low noise balanced microphone input with up to 60dB of gain has allowed engineers throughout the world to exploit the full potential of high performance condenser microphones.
