There’s a reason this box became an instant industry standard when it hit the studio world a decade ago: The Distressor is a killer tool. The EL8 ‘DISTortion compRESSOR’ uses real analog circuitry to emulate the famous classic compressors, like LA-2A and 1176. But that’s not all! This mono-monster is super tone-sculptor in its own right. Dial in some harmonic distortion and twist those big white knobs, and you’ll discover what thousands already know: The Distressor is THE desert-island comp!
