Originally based on Drawmers classic 1960 Mic Pre-Amp/Tube Compressor, the Drawmer MKII Dual Vacuum Tube Compressor/Pre Amp includes a number of exciting new features that contribute to a distinctive new sound.

The 1969 enjoys a silky smooth sound thanks to the use of 'Burr-Brown' op amps which give it a distinctive and instantly recognisable audio interpretation. The 1969 employs true Stereo Link operation with channel one's Threshold, Attack, and Release controls being master to both channels. In addition to these features the 1969 Vacuum Tube Compressor Pre-Amplifier incorporates new tube circuits specifically engineered to add warmth to its mic/line signals. The instrument pre-amp has its own tube stage enabling classic overdrive effects when plugging in electric instruments such as guitar or bass, remaining true to the classic Drawmer 1960 design.


  • 2 mic/line pre-amps with variable gain, 48V phantom power, filters and phase reverse.

  • Instrument tube pre-amp with variable gain, EQ, phase reverse and brightness boost.

  • 2 soft-knee tube compressors with variable threshold, attack, release and output gain.

  • True stereo link operation with BIG position for retaining bass frequencies.

  • Side chain access and side chain listen facility.

  • VU metering of gain reduction and output levels.

  • Individual +4dB/-10dB inserts / Balanced +4dB XLR input/output connectors.
