A Designs EM-PEQ
Special Order

A compact and powerful Pultec-style EQ!

The A Designs EM-PEQ card sonically nods to the classic Pultec EQP-1A sound. The classic all-tube Pultec EQP-1A goes down on the record books as one of the most venerated equalizers of all time, cherished by recording and mastering engineers for its almost mythical ability to improve the sound of just about anything running through it. With the EM-PEQ, A Designs was able to 'shrink' this highly sought after filter design and fit it to their R 52 rackmountable module. Classic sound with modern thinking, that's the EM-PEQ!

A Designs EM-PEQ at a Glance:
  • The merging of past and present
  • Built from the finest components available

The merging of past and present
The EQ section design and control layout of the classic EQP-1A has been meticulously maintained, as well as its wonderfully smooth musicality. Makeup amplification is achieved through the use of the same discrete Class AB amplifier found in A-Designs' popular solid-state Pacifica mic pre, putting a slightly unique twist on the classic design of yesteryear.

Built from the finest components available
Additional features include a nickel core output transformer, gold Grayhill rotary switches, Wima caps, and a true hard bypass. Instead of using common off-the-shelf chokes, A-Designs uses a custom-wound tapped inductor wound to the original values. Fully balanced, noise-free operation with modern impedance specs make for dummy- proof operation and fast studio integration. The EM-PEQ is an approved API 'VPR Alliance' product and may also be used in Brent Averill Enterprises racks and A-Designs' R52.
