JBL 7126 compressor...?

I just found one of these...not sure how old it is, or if it's any good. Any info would be cool.

I have used some live a long time ago

As I remember it was a bit noisey if you used it as a mic pre it was a bit too dulling
for my tase but it has a nominal 150 ohm basic mic amp that would be usefull on maybe bass its balanced out but I dont think it has a transformer on the input.
Age Circa 1970 resolved component.
I used to work for HHB hire I am sure I have fixed/recalibrated one in the old days.
If the caps are not dried might be a usefull texture for somthing, Don't pay a lot for it.
God I am so old maybe my caps are dry.

I've had one of these units in my rack for a year now. It's always been missing the transformer, but it looks like I may have located two. Have you tested yours yet? I'm very curious of its character.
