So, after hearing a TON about UA gear from Mark Madgage,(Who is the best sweetwater rep EVER!!! just sayin') , but avoiding it for no good reason at all, I finally decided to start investing...Starting with the LA-3A. This guy has tons of character. It makes anything you put through it sound oddly warm and dimensional. It's a must have for vocals. Just put em through, give it a little reduction and they pretty much sit right were you want them to. Simply amazing. Get it.
