The world-renowned Summit Audio TLA-100A tube leveling amplifier has been regarded as a staple by studio and live engineers around the world for more than a quarter of a century.

The main thing that has made the TLA-100A an industry standard since it’s introduction in the mid-80s is that it’s one of the easiest compressors to use, allowing the focus to remain on the performance…not on the gear.

One of the main qualities that makes the TLA-100A so desirable is that it has the smooth program dependent sound of an optical compressor, but is capable of the much faster attack times required for taming fast transients found in source material such as vocals, bass, and drums.

Each piece of Summit gear is meticulously crafted by hand in our shop using only the best quality components and attention to detail. Quality components and engineering know-how are the critical element to the sound and longevity of audio gear.

dB says

What should I say about the TLA 1o0 that hasn’t beed said?
It is one of THE classics audio recording.
For some it is THE best tracking comp out there.
One thing’s for sure though:
I can’t think of any other comp that will put a vocal or bass at ease like the TLA does.
