BBC Type Am6 limiting amplifier


A great transistorised limiter from early in the BBC’s popular Am6 series.

Later varients like the white faced Am6/7 and the Am6/17 made under licence by Neve and Calrec are better known and, as far as music production goes, more aggressive or clinical respectively.

The Am6/3┬áhas the option to internally modify to a softer ‘compression’ slope, but sounds fine as it is.
