Drawmer S2 – No Longer Available

Dual-channel tube compressor

Product Description

The new Drawmer S2 Signature Series Dual Channel Tube Compressor is the latest product to emerge from Ivor Drawmer’s high end designs and offers an ‘all tube - no technical compromise’ circuit using only the highest grade components.  The S2 features a host of new creative processing possibilities never before found in an all analogue dynamics package.

V-BIG
Retains bass frequencies and minimizes undesirable ‘pumping’ by rolling off the detection signal at 75, 125 or 250Hz (user switchable).  A fully variable level control allows for the desired amount of V-BIG processing and an in/out switch provides the option to remove from the signal path for A/B comparison.

V-AIR
A dynamic high frequency enhancer to keep compressed audio sounding fresh and bright with continuously variable frequency control (500Hz to 20kHz) and variable level to control the amount of V-AIR enhancement.

DRY
Mixes user defined amount of ‘uncompressed’ signal with the compressed signal to create ‘parallel compression effect’ without the need for external mixing devices.

Features:

  • Two-channel soft-knee tube compressor
  • Fully balanced internal signal path
  • Class A design
  • Isolation transformers in and out
  • ‘Alltube’ circuit design
  • Variable attack and release with optional ‘programme dependent’ auto release operation
  • Dual mono or stereo link operation
  • Switchable ‘Peak’ Or ‘Vu’ metering to display transients
  • Switchable +10db Or +20db meter re-scale modes
  • Eight segment gain reduction metering
  • ‘V-Big’ Mode For Retaining Low Frequencies
  • ‘V-Air’ Mode For Enhancing High Frequencies
  • ‘Dry’ Mix Mode For ‘Parallel Compression Effect’
  • Balanced Xlr Inputs/Outputs

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.
