If the WA76 isn’t enough, now Warm Audio has a new friend to pair with it and the TB12. Let’s all welcome the new Warm Audio Tube EQ. This is Bryce’s take of a Pultec EQ with a few mods to make it even more useful in the modern studio. A lot of care was taken to make this EQ have as much mojo as possible, even going as far as having Cinemag design custom transformers and inductor. We can’t wait to try one of these out. Bryce says:
I know it’s been a long wait for pictures of the new….. wait for it….TUBE EQ! 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). A lot of bang for the buck.
I’m amazed at how musical this thing sounds, it pulls detail/frequencies from a source signal so smoothly, it really 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 too, 20hz all the way to 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.
As usual, price point is what Warm Audio cares about, so we’re letting this one go for just $679, 699 Euro Inc VAT in Europe.
