Based on the original 1960 Mic Pre/Tube Compressor, Drawmer’s 1969 Mercenary Edition uses ‘Burr-Brown’ op amps for a silkier sound and features a Phase Reverse switch in Instrument, Mic and Line modes for increased versatility. The 1969 employs true Stereo Link operation with channel one’s Threshold, Attack and Release controls becoming master to both channels.  Stereo Link also offers a Big position which retains bass frequencies by rolling off the detection signal at 100Hz minimizing undesirable pumping during compression. Output Gain make-up can be independently controlled on each channel. The 1969 Mercenary Edition incorporates new tube circuits designed to add warmth to mic/line signals, and the instrument (DI) pre-amp has its own tube stage enabling classic overdrive effects when inserting guitar, bass and other instruments.
