The LIVERPOOL Tube Compressor inspires creativity and has a sound reminiscent of world famous Mu compressors used at major Studios. It is a modern design born from an original American Mu tube compressor modified by engineers in the 1960’s. The Liverpool incorporates large custom wound transformers, new old stock tubes and high quality components throughout the audio path. The Liverpool Compressor is a combination of art and function.
