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.
