OPTO 6

Never Bring a Knife to a Gun Fight

Drip was born from the desire to do what no one had done before - create a viable, and fully operational PCB of the historic LA2A compressor to the DIY community. Drip's Opto Series achieves its low distortion soft-knee characteristics using the same unique  tube driven electro-optical attenuator system as the revered LA-2A.

Paying homage to one of the world's best compressors, this Series generates wonderfully musical results on a vast range of material. This leveling amplifier is loved for its natural compression, subtle warming characteristics, and the ability for instantaneous gains reduction without an increase in harmonic distortion.
