Very disappointed with product and service

11.01.2017
I bought 2 Golden Age Comp-3A compressors from Thomann in September. Neither worked on arrival. I sent both back for repairs (took about 4 weeks round trip from the UK to Germany). One now works. Thomann have asked me to video the other one not working (i.e. they don't belive me) and have offered returning to them again as the only alternative - meaning I have to box it up and wait another 4 weeks, assuming it works 3rd time around.
Lessons: 1) This product is either unreliable or not sturdy enough for mail order. 2) Don't buy fragile kit from Thomann if you are based in the UK because if there is a problem, it takes a month to fix, given postal times.

One comp, one Universe to compress!

04.01.2017
Handling: Extremely lightweight! Pots are made of high quality metal.

Features: Apart the well-known parameters of a vintage compressor, i point out a very useful one: you can attenuate the input of 20db and keep the output level flat or viceversa (drastically reducing the noise)!

Sound: Transparent, with any source material (both simple as a vocal or complex as a IDM bus track), even if with a heavy compression; efficient (thanks to the adaptive attack and release, you ever have to worry about artifacts, HE always KNOWS how long or short they have to be).

Quality: If you use it with a good guy like a Neumann and a good pre (say the GA pre mkIII) and with Vovox cables, you're going to make a top 10 quality track.
Thus, if you use it with a sort of compromise before it, this is completely useless, go for a plugin.
