Cornish OC-1
« on: January 06, 2020, 07:17:28 PM »
After cramming my last few builds in 1590A enclosures going back to a 125B build is like throwing a hotdog down a hallway.  This is the Aion board (Oceanid) that's their trace of the venerable Pete Cornish OC-1 compressor.  "Okeanides" represent divine blessings (nymphs) in Greek mythology that presided over the earth's fresh water.  In the same way Cornish represents divine blessings in pedal mythology and presides over people with unlimited spending power.

It's a very compelling compressor.  Extremely quiet with a very smooth attack and decay, it has a bit more squish than most opticals at the end of it's range.  And of course the Cornish buffer.  Switchable but who would dare do such a thing...

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Magnificent!  Love the gut shot.  The wiring is fantisimo!

Nice build.  I built one and it is a nice compressor.  I let my friend try it and I have one less compressor, now.

 I hear that.  The stuff I really like I don't let anyone else try anymore cuz I know I'll never get it back.  I think I've built a total of 3 Collosalus' (Collosalii?) and I still don't own one :-)

Did you measure the resistance on the trimmer to bias it or just by ear?
