Universal Audio's Max Preamp and Dual Compressor is the ultimate pedal for guitarists, bassists, and anyone looking for an incredibly versatile compressor that'll significantly enhance their sound. Featuring three studio-grade compressors that can be isolated or stacked, the Max is a creative effect as much as it is a tool to fine-tune your signal.
The Max has three compressor settings to choose from: Dyna, Opto LA-2A, and FET 1176. While these settings all have their own unique sonic characters, they can also be stacked for limitless tonal possibilities. Whether you need a standard compressor to smooth out your sound, are looking to pair two 1176s for classic Led Zeppelin tones, or need the big, powerful sound of an LA-2A stacked with an 1176 for recording bass, the Universal Audio Max can handle it and more. On top of that, it also features a built-in UA 610 tube preamp that gives it a fat direct-to-console sound that makes it an excellent tool for the studio.
Complete with buffered bypass and a circuit-correct ratio selector, the Universal Audio Max is a must-have for players seeking a versatile compressor with a stellar array of tones on tap.
