Info on Neve 1060 germanium based EQ

I've got a pair of Neve 1060 micpre/EQ's here that I purchased a few years ago. I haven't been able to come up with a whole lot of info on this module, except a schematic of the 1061 EQ module which isn't quite the same. These modules used external transformers (Gardners) for the mic and line inputs and have LO1166 output tranies inside. EQ is low and high shelfing (not sure what frequencies) and a switchable mid band @ 1.75kHz, 2.5kHz, 3.5kHz, 5.0kHz and 7.0kHz.

Does anyone have a schematic they can share or any other info, like biasing, setup, etc would be appreciated.

Yeah, I like em a whole lot. I did recap them and ended up using Marinar trannies in front because the Gardners were long gone.

What was your address again?

I had a pr.of Neve 1060's and still have the pinout while they ran on -24VDC not +24VDC.The ones I had had a jensen transformer for the mic input instead of the standard Neve input transformer and I have to say they were the best sounding Neve modules I have ever heard while I've had 5 Neve desk and every Neve micpre/eq you can dream of.

The 1061 schematic should work, its only the EQ that is a bit different.
I have a 1061 module here as well which sounds great, and the eq is similar to the 1066 i believe with switchable bass and a HP filter.
But should be the same as your 1060 for cards etc inside.

If you recapped the cards you could more or less just set the trimmers on the cards to their original position if someone moved them, ususally there is a paintmark, and you should be fairly close to original specs.

Aw man, I used to have a client with a pair of old Germ Neves that we always used on his guitars. It's been a while but I wanna say the model number was 1050-somthing...? Anywho, they sounded amazing. I miss those things.

He also had an old mint (and I mean MINT) 8014 all decked out with 1066s in his basement studio. It was Neve heaven
