Guitar effects pedal with legendary optical tube compression, true/buffered bypass and Stock/Fast attack switch.

The UAFX LA-2A Studio Compressor puts legendary optical tube limiter sound at your feet, voiced to precisely match the original hand-wired hardware—with all the inspiring tone and classic feel on tap. Whether it's ringing clean tones and single-note guitar lines, or adding focus to bass, synths and keys, the LA-2A enhances instruments like no other compressor. This pedal gives you all the big, three-dimensional sound of the original hardware—including its transformers, tubes and T4 optical cell distortions—right on your pedalboard.

Add the Fat Sound of a Vintage Tube Circuit

Even without compression, LA-2A will elevate your tone with bold tube thickening, easily pushing your already-cooking tube amp into juicy overdrive, full of harmonics and color.

Compress With a Tough, Compact Stompbox

Built for years of trouble-free performance, LA-2A Studio Compressor features switchable true/buffer bypass, Stock/Fast switch for quicker attack time and a Mix control for easy parallel compression, giving you legendary limiting effects for decades to come.

  • Authentic emulation of iconic Teletronix LA-2A optical tube compressor/limiter, captured in a compact stompbox
  • Perfectly captured end-to-end emulation of vintage transformers, tube amplifiers and T4 optical cell for fat, three-dimensional tube tones
  • Mix control for easy parallel compression effects
  • True/buffered bypass, Stock/Fast attack switch
  • Timeless UA design and craftsmanship, built for years of reliable performance
