Product Overview Zipper MKII - Optical Compressor
When the phrase 'Optical Compressor' is uttered, the first thought that may arise is of the legendary 'Urei LA3A'. Tsakalis's aim was to design an optical compressor with focus on simplicity, strength in capabilities and warmth, but in a compact size. Say hello to the Zipper.

Tsakalis's Zipper MKII is a discreet optical compressor with buckets of headroom and power to enhance your sound, without altering the overall character of your tone.

The carefully selected optical element provides auto adjustable attack and release dependent on the signal strength. We're also able to select the compression ratio by flicking between 'Hard' and 'Soft' ratio, 'Hard' being 10/1 and 'Soft' being a 4/1 ratio. At 10/1 the Zipper gives the sound much more 'punch' and becomes almost more percussive, ideal for funk and 'chicken pickin' styles.
