Golden Age Project EQ-81

Golden Age Project EQ-81 - Signal Processing & 500 Series - Legendary 1081 EQ, for a SongAt Sweetwater, the vintage 1081 console module commands reverence. Introduced in 1972 as a 4-band upgrade from the 1073 (itself a legend), the 1081 was deployed in classic Neve boards such as the 8048. Fitting testimony to how good they sounded, vintage 8048s with 1081 modules are still in use today at world-class studios such as The Village in LA. But you don't have to book time there to enhance your tracks with definitive British EQ. Golden Age designed its EQ-81 with a vintage 1081-style circuit with broad frequency coverage and unrivaled punch. This is the authoritative, audacious sound behind countless hits — and it can be yours for a song, with the Golden Age EQ-81.Combine with a Pre-573 for a value-packed 1081-style preamp/EQThe EQ-81 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 a Pre-73 and the EQ-81 in a Golden Age Unite rack, you'll have 1081-style preamp/EQ combo at a great price!The Golden Age ProjectThe Golden Age Project was founded in 2005 on the belief that vintage gear sounds best, and the desire to pass on this sonic legacy to a new generation of musicians, engineers, and producers. All discrete, Class A signal paths with no integrated circuits; the use of transformers, stepped controls, and military-grade build quality: these are the cornerstones of the legendary British equipment deployed in world-class recording and broadcast studios in the 1970s — the Golden Age of analog. Fat, warm, punchy, and authoritative; this is the sound heard on countless hits for nigh unto half a century. Locating, purchasing, restoring, and maintaining vintage gear is time-consuming and costly. Fortunately, this small, family-owned Swedish company makes gear the same way it was made back in the day — at an amazingly gentle price.A distributor of high-end studio equipment for many years, Golden Age Project founder Bo Medin wanted to be able to offer products with much of the same exclusive sound in a price range that made them available to a larger audience. Inspired by original designs, Golden Age uses modern technology to re-create that lush, opulent sound, making it surprisingly affordable. They use some modern ingenuity to add new functionality to superb classic designs and produce them in a cost-effective way which allows them to be both optimized and affordable. From outboard equipment to condenser, dynamic, and ribbon mics; you can outfit your entire studio with vintage-inspired Golden Age gear without exceeding your budget.Golden Age EQ-81 4-band EQ Features:. 4-band equalization with inductor-based mid bands.
