Warm Audio EQP-WA, Pultec style EQ-1083-0.jpg

I know it's been a long wait for a picture of the new..... wait for it....TUBE EQ! So here it is. It is a Pultec EQP-1A style EQ, with high voltage tube makeup gain just like the original! It utilizes CineMag input and output transformers, a CineMag inductor, Tung Sol high-end tubes out of the box (12AX7 and 12AU7).

I'm amazed at how musical this thing sounds, it pulls detail/frequencies from a source signal so smoothly, it makes everything come alive. I've paired 2 of them for mastering and mixes sound like they're being transferred from digital to vinyl, but without losing detail..... unreal smooth. The frequency response is stellar 20hz-50khz.

If you compare it to the original we added a few frequency points. The 200, 400, 800 Hz are really cool low mid options that weren't available on the original. 3 and 4 Khz cut options were added too.

"Warm Audio has carefully re-created the most renowned tube Equalizer in studio history. Not only does the look and feel of the EQP-WA match the classic Pultec unit, but the sonic quality has been carefully considered by using top-end components such as CineMag transformers and premium grade vacuum tubes. This fully discrete Tube EQ can pull incredibly detailed musical transients from any track bringing a sonic brilliance and lustre to your final mixes that’s nearly impossible to achieve inside-the-box.

The original Pultec design offered a unique style of EQ curve and character not found on other types of equalisers, which is why meticulous attention has been made to remodelling and reproducing the original sound faithfully whilst maintaining the Warm Audio philosophy of affordability, available to everyone.

Warm Audio has once again redefined the industry standard and brought a fully professional-grade piece of outboard gear to the market at a price that’s making history."
