Build Your Own Clone
This is a fairly simple build based on the Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer. Known for its incredibly transparent compression and low noise floor with just a hint of added warmth, it's a favorite alternative to the typical OTA-based compressors guitar players usually have to choose from. The only real change we made to the original circuit was the addition of a cross-fade dry blend control.
Features all through-hole components, including the NOS CA3080 chip, and full-sized panel mounted hardware.
NOTE: Because of limited space, you cannot use knobs with skirts larger than 16mm. We recommend using 1900, Mini Fluted, Mini 1510, or BYOC style knobs.
