Limiting Class A Line-level Amplifier with All-transistor Circuitry

FET-Style Compressor with Class A Output & Custom Transformers - True to the Original

The 1176LN Classic Limiting Amplifier is a modern reproduction, yet every effort was made to remain faithful to UA founder Bill Putnam Sr.'s visionary design and intentions. The original UA 1176LN was a major breakthrough in limiter technology - the first true peak limiter with all transistor circuitry offering superior performance with a signature sound - and set the standard for all limiters to follow. The ultra-fast attack time and trademark sound have lured legendary artists and studio moguls alike to the 1176LN - Peter Frampton, Joe Satriani, Joe Chiccarelli, Vance Powell, and Mike Elizondo are just a few names on a list that's continued to grow, for nearly 50 years.
