Weight Tank's all-tube circuitry (6BC8 & 12AU7) and three all-steel audio transformers (Input, Interstage & Output) are designed to deliver big, saturated and harmonically-rich results. While not a clone, the Weight Tank Compressor borrows concepts from compressors such as the UA 175B, Altec 436 (as well as its British child) and certain aspects of the Locomotive Audio 14B. The goal was to make the best colored vari-mu style tube compressor at a tremendous value.
ROUND | DRIVE
Armed to emit a variety tones, the Weight Tank Compressor features an exciting design with the ability to switch between two pure Class A output bias points, much like auditioning guitar amps.
When run in " Round ” mode, a smooth, sweet and pure tone will result. If switched to “Drive” mode, the 12AU7 output tube bias swings drastically hotter and offers an enhanced harmonic structure and overall driven tonal shift. Switching between these two bias settings can result in both subtle or drastic changes depending on the source material and how much signal is being sent through the unit.
