The SA-76 is the finest replica of the vintage 1967 Teletronix 1176 available in the market today. The 1176 is the most sought after compressor in the world that has been used on virtually every hit record and we are very proud to have recreated every drop of character and usability of this classic compressor at a price that makes it accessible to anyone.


We have gone to great length to faithfully reproduce the compression characteristics and tonality of the original.

It features a Sowter 1260 input transformer which is an identical replica of the original UTC O-12 (Ratio 1:1.58 200/500 Ohms) and a CineMag output transformers that precisely matches the ratio and frequency response of the original 5002 output transformer designed by Bill Putnam. We have made no compromise in parts such as Vishay capacitors, NOS carbon resistors and matched selected transistors to ensure you will get the best sounding unit without cutting any corners. All of the SA-76’ are calibrated in our workshop in Chile where they get their transformers soldered, a full health check and a burn for 24 hours.


While plugins have come a long way, and are incredibly useful, there’s a reason the top engineers still have analog gear in their racks. To give your recordings the warmth, depth, and power you hear in all your favorite recordings, you need hardware. The SA-76 gives you all these things in spades. Stunning on vocals. Amazing on bass. In fact, most things will sound better by just running them through the SA-76 circuitry without even compressing!


Stam Audio Engineering products are about sound quality first and foremost. Every component of every unit is premium quality and carefully selected to ensure our units match or even surpass the quality of high end boutique gear.

So when you see the price for the SA-76 the first thing you probably think is: how is that possible?

The answer is two fold.

First, we work on small margins. We want to see professional gear within the reach of anyone who has the passion to use it so we’re willing to sacrifice profits to make this possible.

Secondly, we order in large batches. This keeps our costs as low as possible, and allows you to get your hands on our units at a much cheaper price.

That said, how much will a SA-76 set you back?

If you’ve used an original before, we’re extremely confident will put a big smile on your face every time you use it. However, if you’ve never touched the original before, as gear lovers ourselves we understand that the only way to really know if a piece of gear is for you, is to put it through its paces. This allows you to get it into your rack and see how it impacts your recordings. If you love it (and we think you will!), great… keep the unit and create amazing music with it. If not, no problems. Just send it back to us and we’ll fully refund your purchase. And don’t worry, either way you decide to go we will remain friends.
