Highland Dynamics BG2

Write less automation. Find more enjoyment. The Highland Dynamics BG2 is an all-tube, fully transformer-balanced “very-mu” compressor with automatic leveling capability, but there’s much more to it than mere leveling.

The BG2 is a marriage of classic tube compressor topologies. Its front end is in the style of a British-modified modified Altec 436 while its twin 6V6 output amp is reminiscent of the venerable RCA BA6A and Gates output stages. The result is a compressor with heavy tube character that sounds more airy and spacious than most.
