Product Description

The A-Designs EM-PEQ is 500 series equalizer that takes inspirations from the the classic Pultec EQP-1A. It faithfully replicates the EQ section design, control layout, and beautifully smooth musicality of the original unit.

It has the same frequency settings and inductors that made the Pultec a must-have for accurately capturing and shaping the sound spectrum, especially the bottom end. The high band is attenuated at 5k, 10k, 20kHz; bandwidth and boost can be varied mid to high band at 3k, 4k, 5k, 6k, 10k, 12k, 16kHz; and, of course, the low band can be boosted and/or attenuated at 20Hz, 30Hz, 60Hz, or 100Hz. Boost and attenuation can be adjusted from 0dB to ±10dB.

Additional features of the EM-PEQ include a nickel-core Cinemag output transformer, gold Grayhill rotary switches, Wima capacitors, and a true hard-wired bypass; plus, instead of using common off-the-shelf chokes, A-Designs uses a custom tapped Cinemag inductor wound to precisely the same values as the original Pultec.

Along with the classic EQ circuitry, layout, and exceptionally musical sound of the EQP-1A, the EM-PEQ offers fully balanced, noise-free performance and modern impedance specs for easy operation and fast studio integration. Makeup amplification is achieved through the use of the same discrete Class AB amplifier found in A-Designs Audio’s immensely popular solid-state Pacifica mic preamp - putting a slightly unique and modern twist on the classic design of yesteryear.
