Drawmer 1968 – No Longer Available

Two-channel FET compressor with tube output stage

Product Description

Based on the exceptional compressor design found in the Drawmer 1969 Mic Pre/DI/Compressor, the Drawmer 1968 Two-Channel Compressor features improved metering and function with the incorporation of separate “big” switches for each channel, making it ideal for use in both tracking and stereo compression applications.
 
The 1968's gain reduction cell is the same FET compressor with variable tube output stages as the 1969, giving it a rich euphonic tone with the speed and musical grace made famous by the 1969.
 
The "Big" switch feature on each channel provides the user front-panel control to easily remove the low frequency component of the program material from control of the gain reduction cell, effectively boosting the bass output. A patchable side chain is available in conjunction to the “Big” switch offering the user complete flexibility frequency dependent ducking.
 
The 1968 also features side-chain-listen capability granting the user the ability to perform precise and specific side chain control. The metering on the 1968 has also been expanded to meet the demands of modern tracking and two-buss requirements.
 
The VU meter can display either gain reduction or output levels while a sophisticated LED warning system has been implemented to warn the user as they approach the maximum operating level. The 1968 is a unit that was designed to be capable of being driven hard, which is the reason for the “+10” meter re-scaling switch, yet one need not be a maniac to enjoy the musical qualities of what we think you will find to be one of the most musical compressors you can add to your arsenal of tools.

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
