The Chandler 500 Series Little Devil Compressor combines elements of the LTD-2 and Germanium Compressor, as well as 2264 and 33609 units. Discrete transformer sound and handmade quality are the make up of this Compressor. This compressor uses a 100% discrete transistor circuit and specially wound transformers.
The controls like wet/dry, sidechain filter, and curve selection make the unit extremely flexible. When combined with its intense tone, this compressor gives you a powerful package in a small box. This compressor has been upgraded to eliminate the power conflict experienced with some 3rd-party racks and lunchboxes. The upgrade has been tested in the racks: API 500V 10-slot with L200 PSU; API 500-6B Lunchbox; API 500-6B HC new version Lunchbox; BAE 11-slot with power one supply; BAE 6-slot portable with power one supply; BAE 6-slot with Avedis designed supply; A-Designs 2-slot; Purple Sweet 10; and Empirical Labs 2-slot.
