Universal Audio 6176 Vintage Channel Strip


Please contact me with information about availability and pricing for Universal Audio 6176 Vintage Channel Strip




The UA 6176 is one of our favourite channel strips. It combines a Classic Tube UA 610 Microphone Preamp, some subtle EQ and an 1176-Style Compressor in a Single Unit.


Universal Audio 6176 PRODUCT FEATURES:

The 6176 Vintage Channel Strip combines the alluring, all-tube sounds of the legendary Bill Putnam-designed 610 microphone preamp, with the signature FET compression of our 1176LN, to create the ultimate recording channel strip.
The warm, smooth tones of this mic preamp design - employed to record everyone from Frank Sinatra to Van Halen I - and the unique characteristics of the compressor, are two major reasons why the 6176 is found in studios around the world.

* All-tube mic preamp section derived from legendary Bill Putnam-designed 610 modular console
* Signature 1176LN Class A FET compressor section, as heard on countless hit records for more than 30 years
* "Split" or "Join" switch allows separate or series operation of the preamp and compressor
* High and Low frequency shelving EQ
* Variable impedance Input, Gain, and Output levels
* Mic, balanced Line, and Hi-Z inputs
* Ultra-quiet operation
* Stereo interconnection via 1176-SA
* Hand-built in USA; backed by 1-Year limited warranty
