Black Lion Audio Bluey

The Black Lion Audio Bluey is a brand new FET limiting amplifier, based on a uniquely modded 'Blue Stripe' 1176 from Mix LA Studios in California. The Bluey is built on a fully discrete design and features standard balanced 3-pin XLR ins and outs as well as an RCA stereo link for daisy chaining two units together in stereo.

In addition to the standard issue 1176 attack, release and ratio controls, Black Lion have also included a wet/dry mix knob - a feature first implemented with the Seventeen series compressor. This gives engineers the opportunity to dial the dry signal back in whenever desired and balance the amount of compressed signal to their liking.
