Home Opto-3A




Part of Bob Clearmountain’s iconic mixing sound highlights the Urei Teletronix LA-3A. In fact, he prefers this solid-state opto compressor over the more popular LA-2A tube compressor. Get this classic vintage sound and balance out the dynamic range of your mixes in-the-box with the Opto-3A.
