Anthony DeMaria Labs CL1000 Compressor/Limiter

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.
