Project: AM864

A parts list for building the Federal AM864 Compressor according to the notes found on http://www.preservationsound.com/2014/02/federal-am-864-limiter-clone-build-notes/

The AM864 is a varimu compressor. Sowter makes the input and output transformers which can be found on their website. Sowter also makes an exact power transformer though the notes author used an Edcor with success. In the parts list I've included a solid state rectifier as it may be important if going to the AM864 in a 2-bus/mastering application.
