Product Description

The Seventeen compressor is designed in conjunction with hitmaker Tobias Lindell and features a redesigned and improved IC based front end. The Seventeen shows incredible detail and nuance normally not possible with this style compressor. This new front end circuit is coupled with Black Lion Audio's custom designed made in Chicago output transformer which is designed to give this unit a huge bottom end that balances out the open top end very nicely. Black Lion has also include their proprietary Black Lion style power decoupling for an incredibly low noise floor. The Seventeen also uses high grade nichicon signal capacitors, widely considered some of the highest quality caps available.

Never the ones to settle for good enough, Black Lion has added features that users normally consider as upgrades or mods including, a frequency adjustable side chain, separate selectable high and low pass filters, a wet/dry mix knob to allow users to blend in dry signal into their compressed signal, the Seventeen has a palette of tones not available to anything else on the market today. It also includes the all important stereo link function for linking together two units.

Product Review

I was little skeptical ordering this unit, did a ton of research and after comparing to other I made the decision to get the Seventeen for the simple fact that has the functions I wanted from a compressor, I had a warm audio unit before but didn’t compare to this one and that’s why I bought this and planning already on getting an EQ, something about working with analong gear and tweaking all the knobs is fantastic!!!

Product Review

Worth every dollar. I purchased 2 units and very pleased that I did. The stereo link is a really great feature. Units arrived when expected and they work exactly as expected. AMS does it again!! I'm a satisfied customer. I'll be back for more great gear soon.

Product Review

I replaced my WA76 with a Hairball Audio 1176 clone. The Warm Audio had a "mid bump" that really bugged me. The Hairball unit did not have that issue, but there was something about it that bothered me, and I couldn't put my finger on it (still can't). The BLA unit gives me what I was looking for. I never owned a Urei 1176, but I have recorded with them. Is it the same, of course not. I will tell you that the BLA unit is fantastic! It tames bass guitar very, very well! Snare? Oh yeah! Crush a mono drum mic with this thing and holy smokes! Hello!!!! BUY IT!!!!

Wow!!

Product Review

Most small studio recordists want the very best gear, yet the reality is that much of the very best gear is out of reach for the average budget. Enter the Black Lion Audio Seventeen. This solid unit is hands down the finest tubeless compressor I have found under $1000, and I routinely choose it over units in the $2k - $3k range. This feature rich, fluff free machine is a perfectionists dream; it gives me all of what I do need and none of what I don’t. Inserting the Seventeen in the signal chain results in a powerful, well behaved vocal that sits perfectly in the mix and requires little or no EQ. The front panel is beautifully designed, providing an intuitive interface for precise control of input and output parameters. The vintage style VU meter is cool and precise. Wow! Given the spec, the quality and the price, I could not be happier with my purchase. And, as always, AMS provided a seamless, enjoyable transaction experience. You want a GREAT compressor? Get a Seventeen!
