The essence of a vintage EQ, at a price that's easy on the pocket.
The class-A circuit used in the EQ-73 has a similar sound characteristic as the classic Neve 1073 module, but without the high pass filter. The sound is warm, punchy, sweet and musical. The same classic characteristics heard on countless recordings though the years, and it is a versatile sound that works well on multiple different sound sources and genres. Additional frequencies have been added, and the mid frequency band uses two inductors, the higher value of the second one is used for the two lowest frequencies, 160 Hz and 240 Hz, to achieve a suitable response.
The EQ-73 has stepped frequency controls that offers a wide selection of frequencies from 20 Hz to 24 kHz, giving you a wide spectrum to work in. The Low and High frequency bands are shelving and the mid frequency band is a bell type, so you can easily shape the EQ and blend your sound sources into any mix. The control range is +/-15 dB for the two lower bands and +/- 18dB for the high frequency band, and there are separate bypass switches for all three bands.
Order now, and start shaping your mixes with vintage style.

Comments about Golden Age Project EQ73 Neve Style EQ:
I took a chance on this unit because I haven't had a chance to use one. While it is recommended for use with a Golden Age preamp, I am using it with a Warm Audio TB12 (ToneBeast), and it works perfectly. It should work with any preamp that has a low-level input between the in- and out-trannies.
While it doesn't have a high-pass filter (the TB12 provides it!), this unit provides hi shelving, and low shelving, as well as a very nice mid freqency bell sweep. The frequencies provided on the dials are spot on. While its not identical to a Neve 1073, it sounds danged good to my ears. Not for surgical use, but if you want to add a little color and sheen to your input as you go to your DAW or tape, this thing delivers in spades.
Careful with the paint job! Its like enamel spray paint, not powder coat, so it scratches really easily. Otherwise, it seems well built and I look forward to using it a lot.
