RJR FET CUSTOM COMPRESSOR

The RJR FET compressor is based on the earliest vintage FET compressor circuits, with modifications for low noise.  It's capable of perfectly re-creating that big classic vintage crush, but can also be quite neutral at lighter settings. The RJR FET offers many optional customizations, such as stepped controls and smaller ratios, which were never available on the original vintage units.

 

The following are a few examples of custom RJR FET compressors.  These units have already been built and shipped to the customers that ordered them, and are not available for immediate order.  If you would like to order a custom RJR FET compressor, or if you would like to inquire about pricing, available options, or have any other questions, please inquire on the CONTACT page!  Due to the complexities involved in custom orders, please be aware that there is usually a significant lead time involved.

 

At the moment the RJR FET is only available as a custom order unit.
