BRAND : Valley People

MODEL : 440

FUNCTION : Compressor, Expander, & Limiter

DESCRIPTION : This listing is for a Valley People 440 Compressor Expander Limiter.

ACCESSORIES : This listing will include the units power cable. Otherwise, this item comes only as seen on photos.

PHYSICAL CONDITION : Very Good- This unit has visible scratches and dings on the top surface of the item. The rest of the item has minimal wear and remains in very good condition. The knobs and switches on the front panel are clean and sturdy, along with both the reduction meters and VU meter. The has a bit of character but looks to have many years of audio processing ahead of it. Very good solid condition.

WORKING CONDITION : Poor- The unit powers up, but only passes signal during bypass, and has a constant hum on outputs whether in bypass or not. It looks like the heatsink to the voltage regulators in the power supply is loose and the regulators are not screwed in anymore, but the unit is giving +11.5V (should be +15V) and -15V rails. All knobs are present and feel good as do switches. These issues may be an easy fix for the electronically inclined!


ACTUAL DIMS : 19"x 2"x 10"
