The SA-76A-5 is the most authentic and accurate reproduction of the iconic UREI 1176 Rev A available in the market today in a convenient 500 series format.
With a fully discrete signal path following the original schematic, and by using premium components (the same as found on the old UREI’s) and custom transformers we have managed to impart the original tone and character of these legendary compressors in a 500 series format.
Unlike any other replica the Stam 76-5A uses a Sowter input transformer which are identical sounding replicas of the original UTC 0-12 transformers. We also use a custom US made 5002 output transformer that precisely matches the low end and top end found on the old ones.
Vishay capacitors, carbon resistors and selected transistors are the icing on the cake that guarantee that each you receive will be the absolute best sounding 1176 we could possibly make.
Just like the original “blue stripe”, the ratios of 4, 8, 12 and 20 are there, as well as the “all buttons in” mode for 100% stun. Adjustable input, output, attack, and release as well as a Dry-Wet blend control!
Each unit is hand made at our lab in Chile and comes with a 2 year warranty.
