Reservation Calendar


The BG2 is a colorful Vari Mu compressor capable of delivering clean smooth compression or warm tube/transformer grit. The BG2 is designed as a hybrid with the gain reduction tube stage similar to that of a British modified Altec 436, while the output is like a Gates Sta Level or RCA BA6A. Choose between 150/600 input impedance and American/British feedback for different transformer and compression characteristics.

You will be amazed by how deep you can bury the needle on the BG2 and still get artifact free compression that brings your source sound forward with round, even presence. Explore the variety of BG2 tones that are truly unique to analog processing, find that perfect sweet spot that makes everything sound better!
