Hello Everyone,

I would like to introduce the SA-2A Opto Compressor to the forum.

The SA-2A is a faithful reproduction of the classic 1968 Teletronix LA-2A compressor. The vintage LA-2A is the most sought after vocal and bass compressor in the world that has been used on thousands of hit songs.

The SA-2A recreates every last drop of character and usability of this classic compressor, at a price that makes it accessible to anyone.

We have gone to great length to faithfully reproduce the natural compression and vintage characteristics of the original.

First we developed custom transformers to match the frequency response found on the original UTC transformers. Then we sourced an identical Opto-cell from Drip Electronics to match the fixed attack and release response with absolute precision. Last but not least we have decided to use NOS 12AX7, 12BH7 and 6AQ5 tubes and respect the original schematic without any modifications.

Every component of every unit is premium quality and carefully selected to ensure our units match the quality of high end boutique gear.

Pricing is possible due to bypassing distributors and retailers, ordering in large batches and working with small margins. We want to see professional gear within the reach of anyone who has the passion to use it so we’re willing to sacrifice profits to make this possible.

The stock price for the SA-2A is $990US.

Right now though, if you put a $100 deposit down to preorder your unit you will get the discounted price of $790. Deposit can be made into our paypal account ([email protected])

Releaste date is end of May for pre-orders only. A small batch of 100 units will be manufactured, we still have a few left.
