is it possible to do this well without needing to hit 1.5k usd? There's quite a few things in this category: serpent splice, igs volfram (or 500 series dual blue stripe, or perhaps even alter?), overstayer SFE, pair of hairball rev a (rack?). Wait for stam (any real estimates on time frame there)??

Seems nearly everyone makes a 500 series FET these days, but which are worth the cash for this and which aren't? Purple 500, Buzz? (btw, more color and more vintage are better for my sound).

Any suggestions as to other options, or what might be best? would prefer not to break the bank on this, cause I broke it already elsewhere!
Revive Audio has there own 76 just under $1,000. Similar origin story of the Purple. The company moded so many, they started making there own.

I have purple MC77. Also the 500 series splice. It’s very nice

Get Slate Digital's 1176 Blue Stripe with Vintage Circuit 2. Its spot on and sounds indistinguishable to the hardware(its modeled on). May slightly vary with different units. With zero noise and wet/dry knob.

Get it.. Hands down its the best one.
Save precious money, use on infinite resources and make records !

Here for the gear

I hear great things about the Audio-Scape 1176 A. I am going to receive my Stam Audio 1176 ADG very soon and it will be interesting to compare it to my Warm Audio 1176
Back to Audio-Scape. I own their G-Buss Compressor and it blows my UAD SSL Buss Comp Plugin out of the water. Its like the Audio-Scape site says.
Mix, meet GLUE.

Just posted a shootout video between Hairball Rev A and two vintage Rev A's, as well as WA76 and two vintage Rev D's. Hopefully this helps someone with their decisions. I have to say, the Hairball was a blast to build!
