Teletronix LA1 Leveling Amplifier Compressor (Vintage)

Very Rare Teletronix Compressor Designed by Teletronix founder Jim Lawrence, the LA-1 is the predecessor to the storied LA-2. There were only about a hundred of these units ever built, so they are extremely rare. The LA-1 gained popularity after legendary singing cowboy Gene Autry used it on his studio recordings and in his radio show. Front panel control knobs for gain and peak reduction. Meter selector switch for gain, reduction, and output on single meter. All-tube design, xlr and barrier strip connections.

GML 8900 Discrete Dynamics Processor (Used)

Dual Channel All-Discrete Dynamics Processor with Unique Crest Factor, Timing and Release Hysteresis Controls with PSU Is there such a thing as invisible compression? Inaudible but effective dynamic control? If it exists on this planet or any other, the GML 8900 Stereo Dynamic Controller is the device that accomplishes it. The all-discrete 8900 was developed to react to loudness like our ears do. Its psycho-acoustic approach uses multiple true-RMS and fast peak detectors to respond intelligently to signal energy, not just level. The result is the world's smartest, fastest and most transparent compressor limiter.

ARP Axxe Analog Synthesizer (Vintage)

Vintage ARP Analog Synth The Axxe is basically a budget-proof version of the popular ARP Odyssey. With just one oscillator (compared with two in the Odyssey), the Axxe certainly has a thinner sound but it is still that uniquely angular and powerful analog ARP sound. It's not too exciting, but it is simple and straight forward. A perfect first vintage analog for any musician that will still find plenty of use among more seasoned synth players for quick analog bass lines, lead sounds and synth FX. It has no form of memory storage and external control comes via CV/Gate only.

Circa mid 1950’s.
