Originally billed as a photo technology company, Fairchild soon turned to audio when they began hiring incredible creators like Rein Narma. Prior to being brought on to the Fairchild team, Narma, an Estonian-born engineer, had already built the first ten models of the 660 and 670 compressors himself and sold them to Les Paul, Rudy Van Gelder and Olmstead Recording.
With Narma installed as Fairchild's Chief Engineer, the company began licensing his original limiter designs. Yet, when the engineer made the decision to move on from Fairchild, the support behind the 660 and 670 stalled shortly after. Thus, the limiters' future exclusivity simply comes down to the number of original units made, which is somewhere between 30 and 40 units.
For this reason, our team at Vintage King has always been dedicated to the cause of reviving classic pieces of gear. The Fairchild 670, (among other essentials from the likes of Neve, Pultec and Universal Audio), is one of our tech shop team's favorite items to restore. Discover how we bring these powerful limiters back to life by watching the video below.
