Two Pultec units with carefully chosen components for precise stereo matching
The Pultec EQP-1A Matched Pair gives you two Pultec units with carefully chosen components for precise stereo matching.
The Pultec EQP-1A Matched pair is not a simple clone, but the real thing. Built to exacting standard, Dr Steve Jackson has spent years of research to replace discontinued components, with modern equivalent ensuring true sonic integrity and the reliability of modern standards. As a result the new units are indistinguishable from the original units built over 50 years ago.
The Pultec EQP-1A is one of the true legendary EQ, one that has featured on so many classic records due to its incredible ability to sweeten your sound or add weight like no other EQ. Simply passing audio through it will improve your sound and add excitement.
The EQP-1A or “Pultec” for short uses a two shelf design (low and high) with individual boost and cut controls which when combined create a resonant shelf curve. This unique curve lets you boost the low end while notching the frequency above. This results in a deep and tight low frequency ideally suited for kick drums and bass guitars. The high-shelf uses a very similar design but adds a frequency selection for the attenuation control. This lets you add top-end sheen without affecting presence. The shelf frequency points are:
Low Shelf Boost/Cut: 20kc, 30kc, 60kc and 100kc
High Shelf Boost: 3kc, 4kc, 5kc, 8kc, 10kc, 12kc, 16kc
High Shelf Cut: 5kc, 10kc, 20kc
The other aspect of the Pultec sound is the amplification system that includes a valve-driven push-pull gain make-up stage after the EQ, compensating for the loss of volume inherent to passive EQ designs.
