API 2500 True Stereo VCA Bus Compressor w/ Extras #53016

Availability: In stock



WORKING CONDITION: Excellent - This compressor is in excellent working condition. Very versatile unit with tons of unique features and the classic API punch. The L/R calibration trimpot on the front panel is a little bit difficult to access as it doesn't line up perfectly with the faceplate. However, it is still usable and functional. This is in excellent working condition.

PHYSICAL CONDITION: Very Good - This is in very good physical condition. There are some scratches around the chassis, as well as a couple of very tiny ones on the faceplate. A small amount of rack rash can be seen, however overall this unit is extremely sturdy and in very good shape. It's in very good physical condition.
