Here's some of the outboard gear that has impressed us and we think you should know about
1. EKADEK - Custom built audio gear
Greg Brice is a custom gear designer who has developed an solid international client base thanks to the special sonic qualities of his gear and his boutique customised aesthetic. Last year he dropped off one of his Fat Lady Vari Mu compressors for us to check out and see what we thought. To say we were impressed with it was an understatement. It is possibly one of the lushest and harmonically engaging compressors or limiters we have had the pleasure of playing with. Compare it to some of the other high end limiters we have on the site and you will quickly hear why Ekadek made our top 20.

3. FMR RNC
No confusing combination of letters and numbers for the name of this piece of of gear - it is just named exactly what it is.
it is just called the RNC
RNC stands for Really Nice Compressor
This unit isjust that - A really nice compressor (Maybe that's how it got its name......)
Such a cost effective space saver little outboard compressor.
The controls are super simple and layed out so well for such a small unit
Really clean and transparent - its a no brainer for the price.
At such a good price and size it ends up being such a versatile unit too.
Rack up a couple and take em out in your live rig. Hid one in the back of your gigging bass rig!
