Product information - Drawmer 1973

The Drawmer 1973 is a 3-Band FET Compressor that combines exceptional sound with high flexibility and practical features. The 1973 can pull off some pretty amazing things that would be impossible for a single band compressor. It can prevent an acoustic instrument such as a guitar or double bass from sounding boomy and loose, without thinning the highs. 

The 1973 comprises of a set of crossover filters that splits the audio signal into three frequency bands. Each signal then passes through its own compressor, which can be independently adjusted. The signals are then recombined and the final wet/dry mix and levels can be adjusted. The advantage of this is that one frequency band's compression doesn't have any affect on the others.

The timbre can be easily altered without eliminating detail and clarity. adding a heavy compression in the bass band can add to the richness of a vocal track. Any mid band raspiness is easily controlled, whilst high band compression adds shimmer and definition.  

The Drawmer 1973 has been developed to be as simple to use as possible whilst still having complete control over the audio. From left to right, the front panel consists of three identical with Variable Crossover Frequency knobs seperating them. Large, illuminated V.U. meters and output controls are found to the right.

The main features of the Drawmer 1973 include:

  • Standard intuitive controls such as Threshold, Gain, Switched Attack & Release with Gain Reduction Metering on Each Band.
  • Fast Reacting Soft Knee F.E.T. Design with excellent Left/Right Tracking across the Full Range of compression.
  • Variable Wet/Dry Mix plus Output Gain Knobs give a 'Parallel Compression' function without the need for external mixing devices, providing Complete and Effortless Control over the amount of compression used and Output Levels.
  • Variable Band Split Filters at a 6dB Per Octave slope with Switch-able Mute and Bypass on Each Band make 'Tuning In' to a Frequency Simple.
  • ‘Big’ and 'Air' Modes Help to preserve the Very Deep Lows and Enhance the Sparkling Highs.
  • Two Analogue V.U. Meters with Switchable +10dB Meter Rescale Modes and a Switchable ‘Peak’ mode to Display Fast Transients Not Normally Seen on Conventional V.U.s.
  • Dedicated Gain Reduction Meters On Each Band.
  •  Internal Low Hum Toroidal Linear Power Supply with Voltage Selector Switch.
  •  Classic Drawmer Build Quality with Rugged Steel Chassis and Aluminium Front Panel.
