Worthy of a new name. Lightning Boy Audio is excited to introduce, Op-2 Comp. Designed for the studio, tough enough for the road.
- Vacuum tube powered optical compressor. Uses the exact same photo resistor as the famous studio compressor, the LA-2A, for that the same, much loved, auto-release characteristic.
- Super transparent compression capable of being gentle and mild or highly controlled squish.

- Ultra low noise, even with the volume and compression at full.
