FET Comp GC76 (1176 Clone) - PCB
The GC76 is a 1176 cloneGC76, is not meant to be a 100% faithful recreation but merely a great sounding tool, quick and easy to build.
The circuit is based on opamp version of the 1176 with quite a few changes. The signal preamp expands on a mic pre design by Samuel Groner. The noise floor is much lower than on an original 1176, distortion is about the same (it‘s a FET comp after all). Compared to my RevD it definitely has the same character minus trans- former colouration. All-buttons-mode (SLAM) is also included using an illuminated switch. Input and output are electronically balanced, gain reduction metering is provided by eight LEDs and a couple of comparators. The boards include optional connectors to connect input and output transformers (and in this case omit active components associated with I/O) and connecctors for an optional LINK switch and the sidechain HP filter.
