L2A Passive Re-Amplifier Kit
- Full Kit
- Step-by-Step Guide
Get started with DIY and build your own professional reamping box with our most popular kit. The L2A is a rugged, sonically transparent re-amplifier that just happens to be a DIY kit. It's also a simple, fun DIY kit that happens to be an excellent piece of studio gear.
Unrivaled feature set
The L2A is the only passive re-amplifier to feature a Neutrik combo XLR/TRS input jack. No need to grab a TRS-to-XLR adapter.
The L2A’s three-way filter switch makes re-amping any source imaginable a breeze. The low-pass filter (LPF) tames high-frequencies, useful for mellowing out guitars and other bright sources, while the high-pass filter (HPF) is perfect for tidying up the low-end and sub-bass frequencies.

- Super-durable enclosure made from architectural aluminum
- Circuit board custom designed for beginners

Make something great
The L2A multiplies the sonic possibilities of your recording setup by letting you plug the output from your computer, mixer, or tape machine into your guitar amps and effects pedals. Suddenly, all of your guitar gear becomes another set of tools for adding excitement, depth, and harmonic saturation to your pre-recorded audio.

What the pros are saying
- Brandon Drury, Recording Review
I had this together in about an hour, reamped sounds are solid, aggressive. The ability to tune the output level is great for going back into picky pedals. A steal at twice the price plus you get to have the fun of making it.
I have not had the time to try it out yet, but as far as DIY-kits go this is one of the best ones i’ve encountered. High quality components, very nice casing, almost insultingly comprehensive online instructions and a feel of quality and carefulness throughout.
Finished the kit in less than an hour. Worked perfectly the first time I used it. The filtering functionality is a great addition. Thanks for making such an easy to build unit!
This comes with easy to follow along directions. The volume knob comes handy to match your regular guitar -> amp signal vs going audio interface to amp signal.
I found solder one pin then remelting the solder while pressing down on each part make it easier to keep things flush. I found it worked better hoping bent pins would hold parts steady when soldering.
