Black Lion's Seventeen Compressor Isn't Your Grandfather's '76 Compressor

It isn’t even a remake but rather the Black Lion spin on what the ’76 Should have been. Designed in conjunction with hitmaker Tobias Lindell and featuring a redesigned and improved IC based front end, the Seventeen shows incredible detail and nuance normally not possible with this style compressor. This new front end circuit is coupled with Black Lion's custom designed, made in Chicago output transformer, designed to give this unit a huge bottom end that balances out the open top end very nicely. Also included is the proprietary Black Lion style power decoupling for an incredibly low noise floor. The Seventeen also uses high grade Nichicon signal capacitors, widely considered some of the highest quality caps available.

Never the ones to settle for “good enough”, Black Lion has added features that users normally consider as upgrades or mods including: a frequency adjustable side chain, separate selectable high and low pass filters, a wet/dry mix knob to allow users to blend in dry signal into their compressed signal, the Seventeen has a palette of tones not available to anything else on the market today. It also includes the all important stereo link function for linking together two units.
