Chandler Limited Little Devil 500-Series Compressor
The Chandler Limited Little Devil 500-Series Compressor features the hand-made American quality you expect! The Little Devil Compressor combined Chandler's best designs with the hottest designs from the past.
The Little Devil Compressor is a mixture of all that is Chandler. It combines elements of our LTD-2 and Germanium Compressor, as well as 2264 and 33609 units, into an all new compressor for a 500 format. Discrete transformer sound and handmade quality are the make up of the Devil Comp. If you like any of the units that inspired it, you will enjoy seeing those sounds come to the next level. Revolutionary controls like wet/dry, sidechain filter, and curve selection make the unit extremely flexible. When combined with its intense tone, this compressor gives you a powerful package in a small box!
Please note that all Devils feature increased compatibility! No power issues here!

What We Think
The Chandler Limited Little Devil Compressor makes you wonder just how Wade was able to cram that much great sounding circuitry into a single 500 series slot. Seriously, there's so much going on in a Little Devil Comp that 2RU compressors are forming a committee to stop the Little Devil from leading you down it's devilish little path. From the ability to get aggressive to downright nasty in it's Germanium mode to being a great smooth sounding compressor in it's Zener mode, the Little Devil Compressor has got you covered. PLUS, you have parallel compression built right into it with it's Mix function. How cool is that? And if all that wasn't enough, you've also got the Sidechain functionality to keep your low frequencies from tripping the threshold and over-squashing your mix. Again... it's ALL crammed into a single 500 series slot. Features mean nothing without great sound quality, and the Chandler Limited Little Devil Compressor most certainly delivers great sound quality.... devilishly."

OK, I might get slammed for this but I choose this over the 1176 on some applications.
I strap these onto my snares and kicks and BAM it gives it the OOmph it needs with some "color" that Chandlers are known for.
Definitely a keeper in my studio.
