I did 1 up him on the coloringbook for the GssL components kit though.

I had a 700 rack which was fab and a compex which was ok and I thought the Valley 610 was every bit as interesting as both.

If that's the sound you fell in love with, then there will be no reason to look any further.
The 1st 760 module that will be available will be the full sized (console) module and then the 500 series version to follow soon after.

No need to look any where else.
Any word on these? It's getting close to March 2013

I had a compex II pair, yes. I really liked them but they were different. Still had character, but less...
I'd buy some again though. Very nice comps.

I have had an ADR Compex F760 in my studio on loan for a few months and have absolutely loved it on the squash mic of a drum kit. I mean, absolutely love this thing. Sadly the owner has taken it back so I am looking for something to replace it. I have been long considering a Valley People 610 or Dynamite and have been told by one of the chaps at Funky Junk once that these things are amazing on drums so I've now decided that I'm going to get a dedicated compressor for drum work. I don't care about it for any other purpose really.

I was just wondering if any of you here have both of these compressors and could give me an idea of whether the Valley delivers something similar on the kit. My tech said that he thinks a TG1 or some kind of well made clone gives a similar dirty but tight sound on a drum kit. I don't mind buying an ADR if that's the best thing but if a Valley might be better for the task then why not... That is after all the piece I had my eye on before experiencing the ADR.

As I said, it doesn't matter how good it is on any other source as I wont' be using it on anything else regularly so uses on other sources would be a bonus. It's drum bus/overheads/squash track only really. I've got my bus compressor and Parallel sorted already.

Ideas?

Cheers
I don't have a 610- nor do I think I've ever used one, but I use dynamites and a new ADR760 a bunch. They're very different from each other but its hard to describe. Best I can say is the dynamites are real VCA sounding. Kinda like a level or- but not at the same time.

I think the reissue 760 rocks- especially on drums. There's nothing like it when it's right. It has a really nice low end to it and its smooth. Fave drum squashes here are 760, level or, dept commerce, dynamites, and occasionally gain brains (another crazy VCA comp). I'd love to try a pye one day- vintage or new. Never heard one or used one.
