Successor to the original Doublewide tube compressor featuring faster attack and release time, advanced stereo linking capabilities, and improved signal

-just like the original Retro DOUBLEWIDE compressor. Also retained from the original are the gray painted front panel, high-quality US-made Simpson gain- reduction meter, and hand wiring throughout (no troublesome ribbon cables). DOUBLEWIDE II's excellent build-quality is apparent starting with the American-made PC board and extends to the durable and attractive stainless steel case and, don't forget, we only use Cinemag's highest-quality input and output transformers for authentic tone and weight plus the complete freedom from external interference and noise. During initial user testing and comparison, the DOUBLEWIDE II immediately exceeded all expectations with increased flexibility and control that many original DOUBLEWIDE users have demanded. With both faster attack and release (recovery) times now possible, the DOUBLEWIDE II excels at energizing vocal tracks as well as controlling bass, guitars and drum tracks in an elegant and transparent way or go extreme and radical-or dial in anywhere in between!

    Doublewide Double Good
    Super smooth. Not completely transparent - but that's not why I bought it. I think it will become addictive. Definitely adding a second.
