Schematic for tube compressor/sustain ?
Anyone know where to find one? I've got buckets of 12AX7s and 6SN7s so would prefere that tube.
Thanks in advance, John........

There was one in Glass Audio in the earlier part of the century, but I don't recall which issue, and my old ones are in a box in my storage shed. I do recall it was a complex SOB though.

Hello John,

You could try this forum: it's a pro-audio forum. They also diy this, so there are schematics around.

There are some schems for a few Universal Audio compressors here. Also, some other tube stuff:

Waltzing Bear. Thank you, I could not for the life of me recall the name of the site.

Thanks guys. Brett is correct that most of the tube compressors are a bit complicated. The WaltzingBear site is very cool though. The more I read up on compressors the less it seems to make sense to build one. It may be time for yet another guitar amp or preamp.
Thanks Again, John.......

I usually find the forum to be the best source for stuff like this...
I think they have a long list of schematics up, too. You might be able to make a Maxon RCP660 or ART Levelar clone, if you really want a tube compressor.
