Black Lion Audio Seventeen FET Compressor
The Black Lion Audio Seventeen is not the ’76 compressor that your grandfather recorded with. It isn’t even a remake but rather the Black Lion spin on what the '76 Should have been. Designed in conjunction with hitmaker Tobias Lindell and featuring a redesigned and improved IC based front end, the Seventeen shows incredible detail and nuance normally not possible with this style compressor. This new front end circuit is coupled with Black Lion's custom designed, made in Chicago output transformer, designed to give this unit a huge bottom end that balances out the open top end very nicely. Black Lion have also included their proprietary Black Lion style power decoupling for an incredibly low noise floor. The Seventeen also uses high-grade nichicon signal capacitors, widely considered some of the highest quality caps available.
Never the ones to settle for “good enough,” Black Lion have added features that users normally consider as upgrades or mods including, a frequency adjustable side chain, separate selectable high and low pass filters, a wet/dry mix knob to allow users to blend in dry signal into their compressed signal, the Seventeen has a palette of tones not available to anything else on the market today. It also includes the all important stereo link function for linking together two units.

Great sounding 1176 clone
I love the BL17, Its current duties are a parallel compressor for my drums. It gives the kit the extra edge to punch thru, but not in an obvious way. The BL17 sounds great, I have to get another one.
