The A-Designs Audio EM-EQ2 is the answer for those who want the stellar sound of a Pultec equalizer plus the added benefit of modern performance and reliability.

The EM-EQ2 faithfully preserves the EQ section design, control layout, and wonderfully smooth musicality of the original Pultec. It also has the same frequency settings and inductors that made the Pultec a must-have for accurately capturing and shaping the sound spectrum, especially the bottom end. The high band is attenuated at 5k, 10k, 20kHz; bandwidth and boost can be varied mid to high band at 3k, 4k, 5k, 6k, 10k, 12k, 16kHz; and, of course, the low band can be boosted and/or attenuated at 20Hz, 30Hz, 60Hz, or 100Hz. Boost and attenuation can be adjusted from 0dB to ±10dB.

Eminently suited for tracking, mixing, or mastering, the two-channel EM-EQ2 is housed in a rugged, metal 2U chassis. It shares the same custom-milled faceplate, brushed-aluminum control knobs, big jewel power indicator lamp, and heavy-duty Carling toggle switch as the A Designs Hammer (which compliments the EM-EQ2 perfectly). Additional features include a proprietary nickel-core Cinemag output transformer, Wima capacitors, and true hard bypass. Instead of using common off-the-shelf chokes, A-Designs Audio employs a Cinemag custom wound tapped inductor.

Along with the classic EQ circuitry, layout, and exceptionally musical tone of the original Pultec, the EM-EQ2 offers fully balanced, noise-free performance and modern impedance specs, making it easy to integrate it into any environment. 

Here’s the best part: with its dual-mono design, the EM-EQ2 gives you two Pultecs for a fraction of the price of one, making it easier than ever to add the Pultec magic to any project or professional recording studio or live rig.
