Summit Audio TLA-100A Tube Leveling Amplifier
The Summit Audio TLA-100A has been made for over 20 years and produces a sound that remains a much sought after quality that is used on literally thousands of records and in live sound venues across the world. The harmonious blend of old and new technologies produces the incredibly warm and smooth sound of vacuum tubes in a compression device that does not have the inherent disadvantages of older designs.Compressing in a musically satisfying way is easy with the Summit Audio TLA-100A; the incredibly forgiving circuit design makes it almost impossible to make it ‘pump and breath’. When fast transient signals are being sent to the TLA-100A, the unit reacts quickly both in attack and release, when the signal is more legato, the attack and release times automatically react more slowly resulting in a set-and-forget compressor that always sounds right with a minimum of knob fiddling. Try it on vocals and bass, also great for kick drum and guitars. The TLA-100A really shines for tracking and mixing individual instruments and is linkable with another TLA-100A for stereo signals.
