Meter Maker – Day 6

I hope you’ve enjoyed the VU meter photos. Yesteray’s meter was from an Ampex 350. Kudos to my friend Brian Carr for letting me snap a pic.

Our final installment is from a company that remade a classic compressor. That’s not a very good clue, but the meter’s from a very good compressor.

Tell us who makes the unit that features this meter in a comment below.

Updated 11/28 after no one correctly guessed. Mike Hiller was almost correct in guessing 1176LN except this meter is from a Purple Audio MC77, which is an updated (faster) remake.

    I’m crushed that I haven’t been able to guess any. I have gained some information, though. You’ve been able to make-up some gaps in my limited knowledge. I’m betting the odds of seeing another quiz like this are 2.5:1. I’m thinking it would go over well.

    (You see what I did there?)

    UA 1176LN?

      Excellent guess Mike but not correct. This meter is on a remake, not an original.
