Simply amazing! The Chandler Germanium EQ is warm and colorful adding that magic analog "vibe" to your tracks. Tracking or mixing, you will use the Germanium EQ every day!
Absolutely gorgeous sounding.
Thick, punchy, rich, and electric sounding. The sound of heaven made of the finest confections. Worth every penny. Get a pair. Track everything through them, even without EQ. Then strap them on the master bus as line amps to get that Wade brand transformer saturation. My goodness Wade is a genius.
Major addition to my home studio
This little piece of rack gear adds so much color to everything I record. It can go from nice, clean, and airy to a little grit with some harmonic distortion, whatever. This does it all. I was a plug in juckie before, but now I'm trying to capture exactly what I want on the way in. The tone control does this well.
Be aware of high frequency roll off
I got this eq after reading all the drooling going on online and I was expecting a professional eq with the ability to adjust the transformer coloration. First of all no matter what setting you choose on feedback, it eats an unacceptable amount of high frequency. Feedback at max you have to apply a quiet boost on 20khz shelf setting to obtain the normal frequency response. Even feedback at minimum it requires a boost of 2 (as indicated on the device) at 20khz only to have a flat response, otherwise you end up with a sudden lofi spectrum. Regarding the transformer saturation, it wasn't what I expected (I have many tube gear that are used only in top professional studios so I guess I know what I am looking in saturation). This one just adds an artificial plugin like saturation so I use it with the lowest setting. My last word, don't be fooled with the hype, try and than buy!
