Value-packed, Vintage-style Compressor

In the design of the Comp54 MK2, Golden Age targeted the compressor circuit of the legendary Neve 2254, and the result is some of the sweetest vintage-flavored compression we've heard in this price range. Rocking an all-discrete, Class A signal path, the single-channel Comp54 MK2 is fitted with stepped controls, three selectable sidechain filter frequencies, and linking facilities that let you use two units for stereo operation. Golden Age also gives you the option of upgrading all three of the Comp 54's audio transformers to Carnhill vintage-spec reproductions. At Sweetwater, we're impressed with the Golden Age Comp54 MK2 - and we think you will be, too.
