Price is for QTY=1 new old stock (NOS) Klark DN530 gate w/ manual booklet, blank warranty card, factory test sheet, and AC cord. Very hard to find a top notch analog gate these days, no one makes them anymore...super all analog gates for studio or live. Originally sold for around $1000 and long discontinued 10+ years ago, these were the very last final development of the old Klark company's analog rackmount gates, right before behringer bought Klark and discontinued them. These were developed from the gates in Midas consoles (also pre behringer midas, as behr bought both klark and midas at same time). I sold half a dozen of these units already and everyone loves them, LAST ONE LEFT. Ships UPS ground in USA 48 states only.

Very accurate, transparent and smooth, no artifacts or loss of tonal range, set it right and you can't tell the difference of your source except no noise. This final version is better than all other Klark quad gates which I had before, as well as all the BSS, Drawmer DBX and others...I have never heard a better gate. Also can do frequency sweepable selective gating if desired, to hone in on the main offending freq for even more accuracy. And they have an adjustable "accent" effect control for adding transient attack, similar to the spl transient designer...great on drums and guitars to make them cut with more edge if desired (adjustable & can be turned off as well). These got glowing reviews from the big music mags when released saying what I said above. One review you can still find online is from Audiotechnology magazine which you can find by googling.

*Gate attack is exponential which means it can be set extremely fast to reduce signal loss at the start of sounds while remaining sonically transparent - no clicks
*Gate release is reverse exponential so it can be set relatively fast and blend in seamlessly with the natural decay of the material
*Extremely low noise and distortion levels
*Advanced band pass side chain filter to increase trigger source discrimination
*The gate provides rotary controls for all envelope characteristics and range
*Unique progressively controllable accent effect emphasizes transient dynamics
*External key inputs and ducking facilities
*Balanced inputs + outputs
