DBX 160XT compressor
£250
Dorset

Recommended Posts

Here is my 160XT rack compressor. Up for sale as I am moving away from a rack set-up. 

This is a 1990's Hong Kong-manufactured unit. Regarded by some as one of the greatest compressors of all time. Review here http://www.ovnilab.com/reviews/dbx160xt.shtml and here http://www.bn1studio.co.uk/shop/compressors/dbx-160xt-compressor/

Simple layout. Hard / soft knee option, preset attack and release. Adjustable compression and threshold. LED metering for input or output and compression level. Lovely and transparent at lower compression levels but never gets unmanageable at higher levels of compression. XLR and 1/4 inch connector options.

I just set it up and forget it is there and it just puts the bass where you want it in the mix. I have been gigging with this for the past couple of years and it just does the job really well.

Thanks for looking and do message me if you would like any more information.

A lovely, lovely piece of kit mate. I use a Keeley these days but if I still had my rack one of these would definitely be in it.

Still have this amazing compressor for sale. I am downsizing from a rackmount set-up so it has to go which is a shame.

One of the best studio bass compressors going, easy to dial in great results, used them forever.

      Hi everyone! 

      Here we have an EBS Multicomp, original box and all that jazz  
      This is a tried and true compressor that has been in the bass world for years and stood the test of time. With simple functionality via 2 dials (Compression/limit lvl - Gain lvl) and a 3 way switch that selects either a Tube sim compression, Multiband that compresses the highs and lows separately to maintain lows and highs respectively and finally your run of the mill normal compression sound.
      Works perfectly as you would expect from such a strong, well build pedal.
      Either runs by 9v power supply or 9v battery

      Asking £150 collected from Wilsontown, Lanarkshire  or couriered for an additional £20 fully insured UPS .

      * The transmitter is not the original that came with the kit - that one was nicked along with a grands worth of other stuff.    comes with a good quality replacement 12 inch guitar lead as the original was also stolen.  
      The last pic is an attempt to show the thing working. plucking a note gets all the lights lit but the phone camera is so slow it's back down to 2 lights by the time it's taken the photo.
