35th Anniversary Edition

BCA 76 AE White Face

FET Compressor

This year 2022, we here at BAKU Corporation are highly grateful and utmost proud to celebrate our 35th anniversary.
To commemorate this event, the BCA Series Anniversary Edition BCA 76AE Whiteface will be available for pre-order from July 20th at our online shop, currently scheduled to make 25 units.
The shipping is at this time scheduled to start in late August 2022.

Our BCA76AE is based on the UREI 1176LN silver face released in the 1970s.
After years of utilizing the 1176,1178 etc. in a pro audio environment as well as performing maintenance service on everything from original vintage versions to new clones, we feel confident this FET compressor rebuild by BAKU Pro Audio will satisfy your audio needs.
The same vintage/NOS parts used for maintenance have been used for manufacturing the BCA 76AE, in order to get the closest resemblance to an original 1176 unit.

Specifically, the output transformer, VU meter (planned for first batch only), Allen Bradley input/output volume, transistors, capacitors, etc. have all been carefully selected where many components are highly difficult to obtain.
In addition, the high-quality carbon composed fixed resistors manufactured by Allen Bradley, which were used for the audio path of during the blackface period, are also used for the BCA 76AE audio path.
Such as internal wiring cable, push switch, custom made power transformer exclusively for BCA 76AE, all carefully selected in order to manufacture this high-quality compressor.
