Classic FET Compressor


Classic FET Compression at a Great Price

You'll find the 1176 peak limiter in the rack of nearly every high-end studio. Normally, an 1176 will set you back a couple grand, but the Klark Teknik 1176-KT puts this iconic compressor in your hands for much less. The 1176-KT features a discrete output amplifier and custom Midas transformers, delivering top-notch sound. You get the original 1176's compression ratios, including the all-buttons-in "nuke" mode. At Sweetwater, we've turned to the 1176 for its ultra-fast response, and the 1176-KT is no exception, yielding impressive attack and release times. Complete with vintage-style metering and balanced Neutrik connectors, the Klark Teknik 1176-KT FET compressor is a flattering redesign of a studio classic.
