A versatile three band equalizer for 500 Series racks

The Fredenstein 500 Series Artistic EQ is a three band equalizer provides best-in-class audio performance and flexibility. Open sounding and easy to use, the Artistic EQ can handle any program material in live and studio applications. Fredenstein’s unique Color technology, which emulates tube amp characteristics, is also a great way to add vibe or character to your recordings and performances.

The centerpiece of the Artististic EQ is the OPA2 discrete audio operational amplifier. This is not a mere copy of an older model, but a proprietary design manufactured in SMT technology. Matched and integrated dual input transistors guarantee vastly improved specifications compared to older designs. The OPA2, following the tradition of well known manufacturers, is socketed and can be exchanged without tools.

The sound is further defined by the American-made steel-core output transformer, which is known for its smooth vintage sound without being dark or just “mid-rangy.” The low and high frequency filters can be switched between Bell or Shelf. The gain range for each filter is +- 14 dB. To facilitate sound comparisons, a true hard bypass is available when EQ IN is not engaged.
