Golden Age Project Comp-3A Jr Vintage-Style Compressor
Key Features
  • Single Channel
  • Discrete Analog Signal Path Components
  • Transformer-Balanced I/O
  • XLR and 1/4" TRS Input & Output Jacks
The Golden Age Project Comp-3A Jr is a single-channel, vintage-style compressor designed to deliver compression with musical character for musicians, vocalists, and audio engineers in studios and sound reinforcement setups. Its discrete analog signal path components include resistors, capacitors, diodes, and transistors, all of which contribute to its overall tone. The XLR and 1/4" TRS inputs and outputs are transformer-balanced for optimum audio performance and low noise.

Simple, yet versatile controls ensure efficient operations and effective dynamic leveling. In addition to the gain reduction and gain makeup knobs, there are switches for attack and release time combinations, a high-pass sidechain filter, a hardwire bypass, and power. The 7-segment LED meter can display gain reduction or output level via a dedicated toggle switch. The Comp-3A Jr boasts a quarter-rack width and ships with an external power supply.
