A Great Deal on Classic EQ

Note: The EQ-73 is not designed for standalone use; must be used together with a Golden Age PRE-73 or other units with a low-level insert jack.

For their EQ-73 3-band equalizer, Golden Age based the circuit on the EQ section of that exalted classic, the Neve 1073 (an ideal place to start, in Sweetwater's opinion). The EQ-73 is purity incarnate. No ICs in this signal path. How does it sound? Fat and punchy, The EQ-73 is not designed for standalone use; it's intended to be used together with a Golden Age PRE-73 or other units with a low-level insert jack. Combining half-rack PRE-73 and EQ-73 units in a Unite rackmount kit gives you a 19" 1073-style preamp/EQ module at a great price.

Golden Age EQ-73 Features:
  • 3-band EQ with dual-inductor-based midrange band
  • Vintage-style circuit with no ICs in the signal path
  • Stepped frequency selector switch
  • Extra frequencies added for broad coverage from 20Hz-24kHz
  • Up to +/-18dB of boost or cut
  • Each band features its own Bypass switch
  • Tantalum capacitors are used in the signal path
  • Not designed for standalone use; must be used with:
    • Golden Age PRE-73 unit with Insert jack, or
    • Other units with a low-level insert jack
  • TRS I/O; nominal operating level of approximately 18dBu
  • Defeatable Ground Lift
  • External power supply (no interaction with audio circuitry)
  • Classic sound, ideal for most sources and music styles
  • Rugged build quality will provide many years of service
The Golden Age EQ-73 is a classic EQ for studios of every size!
