If anyone is interested in having one built, hit me up

Hey, there are so many kits on the internet.
Ho can I know if I buy one with good quality parts or not?

I want one... no two. But the time I spend for electronic is time I don't use for music. 5 years ago I start may one modular synth and I give up for the moment. Music is my priority.

Wow, the 1176 is my most used compressor, in plugin. I'd love to have an actual unit and this seems like it would be fun. I found this link, which seemed to have pretty helpful info and links to schematics and such: http://masonaudio.manaservice.com/masonaudio/comp1176
Thanks for the video. I hadn't heard about the idea of building your own gear before; very cool!

The Rev A “Bluestripe” = higher distortion and unique FET gain amplifier characteristics.
The Rev E “Blackface” covers the early 70’s Low Noise, a more linear compression response, transistor gain amplification, and a change to the program dependence.
The 1176AE - lower 2:1 compression ratio, a fixed “super slow” 10ms attack mode, and the program dependence of Rev A.

very cool. how do you decide which versions to use for which instruments? Do certain versions work better for different things?
