No. The Hootersound B1 was a completely new design making use of a very interesting IC that combined a variable ratio compressor with a noise gate and a mic amp!

The mic amp was not too good so I altered the circuitry around it and came up with the B1. We painted it yellow and called it Hootersound for a bit of a laugh, but it was a serious product and for a very specific purpose (commercial voice-over for example) it works very well.

I had a couple of them in a cupboard and put one of them on ebay this week. ;)
