In the 60s and 70s, artists such as the Beatles, Pink Floyd and Stevie Wonder turned popular music into art. Analog tube limiters played a critical role in turning these classic songs into monumental recordings. The Lindell Audio MU-66 Tube Compressor is the holy grail of analog tube limiters of this era. It gives you all the control, character and smoothness of the iconic hardware, with expanded capabilities for those who want to do even more with its incredible tone.

Consistent color and lamp 

This faithful emulation of Vari-Mu’s most revered compressor captures everything that makes the original equipment timeless. Its fast attack time provides tight control of dynamics while maintaining rich transients. An adjustable elbow enhances the Lindell Audio MU-66’s versatility, while tubes and transistors provide its signature golden tones.
