Some really nice DIY...

If you head on over to this thread on the Prodigy-Pro forums, you can read all about David Cannikin's beautiful clone of the Gates Sta-Level compressor, pictured above. The real Sta-Level is an incredibly rare piece which generally goes for $1000 to $1500 when it goes at all. Same family as the LA2A, a tube-based opto-compressor. Here's a pic of the Real Deal:
Quite frankly, I like David's better. Check out the thread for pictures of the awesome point-to-point wiring. What a cool box.
