GML8200 Parametric Equalizer at a Glance:
The choice of studios all over the world
Go into any major recording studio, anywhere on earth, and you'll probably find at least one GML8200 Parametric Equalizer in the rack or built into the board. It's that clear! George Massenburg, the inventor of parametric equalization, created the GML8200 for no-compromise audio environments in which the wrong EQ could mean the difference between a Grammy and an also-ran.
Five bands, extraordinary control
Each of the GML8200's five broadly-overlapping bands offers 15dB of boost or cut and adjustable bandwidth (or "Q") from 0.4 to 4. The lowest and highest bands also can be switched to Shelf mode. With uncommon front panel simplicity you can shape your signal a little or a lot!
An astonishingly clean, clear sound
Quite simply, the 8200 is the archetype Stereo Parametric Equalizer. Its extraordinary resolution, benchmark transparency, generous headroom, and surgical precision have been imitated by many other equalizers, but exceeded by no other.

Cream of the Crop!!!
by Alex Palamar from Brooklyn NYThis EQ is the best of the best i've owned this EQ now for about a month and have been able to achieve some great results. Its amazing for surgical eq-ing and really does magic to the low end and top ... read more [+]around 10khz. Great for removing resonance from your mix and getting it to really "pop out of the speakers." close [-]

Well, even if George Massenberg was not my friend, I would recommend this EQ as it's the REAL DEAL! Honestly, if you can buy from the inventor of the parametric EQ industry, why wouldn't you? Guess what George Massenberg didn't invent? Good sound! He just figured out ways of getting it into recordings! I'm honored that George comes here to Sweetwater and trains us and helps us. That further proves what he's really concerned with - getting good recordings.
Even though this equalizer comes from the man who invented the parametric EQ years back, it's still without a doubt one of the most versatile and useful equalizers on the market, and works great for everything from broad tonal shaping to precise surgical tweaks. The amount of boost and cut you can apply with this Eq is almost unnatural... when I use it I find myself having to constantly switch the EQ in and out to make sure that it's on because it's so transparent and neutral. There's a reason it's been the industry standard for decades, and surely will be for decades to come.
Most of my customers ask me "What are some ways I can improve my sound?" One way of course is to have some great outboard gear. A must-have in any studio is a great EQ. If you're serious about your music and sound quality, then you have to include the GML 8200 in your arsenal.
Definitive clarity. No one seems to argue the point. Everyone loves GML and the 8200 is a staple in the industry for distinction at every frequency you can sweep. No harshness, nothing brittle, no grit. Just clean as a whistle.
