THe Anthony DeMaria Labs 1000 (mono) / 1500 (stereo) series is an all-tube compressor with extended dynamic range and a clear, punchy and warm sound. The unit uses an optical attenuator and is based on the revered LA-2A unit.
Starting as they mean to continue Anthony DeMaria Labs built the CL 1000 to faithfully re-create the sound, performance and operation of the original 1950's template, the LA-2A compressor.
Lovingly hand-built with the care and attention to detail that are the hallmark of products from Anthony Demaria Labs, the C/L 1000 gives you the warmth of an all-valve design, whether you use it as part of the compression or to add the tone to your sound - plus you get the transparency and over-easy operation that has made the CL 1000 so popular when recording, particularly for vocals.
The originals are now hard to find and often difficult to maintain and repair, so with the ADL CL 1000 you have one of the best compressors ever made, being produced by one of the best manufacturers.
