Anthony DeMaria ADL 1000

Limiter / Compressor LA-2A Style

A vacuum tube mono compressor/limiter similar in design to an LA-2A. The hand matched optical attenuator and custom in/out audio transformers is the heart and sole of this unique handcrafted compressor. Its “warm,” “punchy” and if driven hard enough “crunchiness” is a true reminder of that magical rock-and-roll sound.

The 1000 has many practical applications for recording studios, tracking, mixing, stereo buss, vocals and instruments, live concert sound reinforcement as well as for film and broadcast work.
All audio transformers are designed according to original specifications which has allowed us to not only serve our needs, but also service and repair original 660 and 670 Fairchilds.
