Joe Meek VC6 MeekBox (gold lettering)
PreAmp / Compressor / Enhancer
The JoeMeek VC6 MeekBox is a single-channel 1U rackmount Preamp with Compressor and Enhancer. This model, made in England, came before the later VC6Q and VC6Q CS models.
It has instrument, line, and microphone inputs, and the mic input has switchable phantom power.
The Optical design Compressor section has controls for threshold, ratio, attack, and release. The comp has its own bypass switch, which is transparent and effective. There’s also an LED that indicates the amount of signal over the threshold.
The Enhancer section is designed to boost upper harmonics, for a brighter tone. The “enhance” knob controls the amount of the effect, the “drive” knob controls the amount of harmonic distortion added, and the “Q” knob controls the width of the range of frequencies affected.
This Joe Meek VC6 MeekBox is in Really Excellent Condition, had Home Use Only and comes with it’s Power Cable.
