The MEQP-1A is 1:1 replica of the most beloved Tube Equalizer in the world, the Pultec EQP-1A. It also features the mid band of the famous Pultec MEQ-5 featuring both boost and attenuation control into a single unit.

After retiring the EQP-1A MK1 in 2019 we spent 3 years developing new custom-made input, inter-stage and output transformers as well as circuit improvements to bring these vintage Pultecs back to life and sound as close as possible and we succeeded.

The MEQP-1A uses three Sowter Audio transformers made in the UK and three Tubes including a 6X4 tube on the power supply famous for its “sag” on these units. Sowter transformers, though expensive, far exceed any other offering when it comes to low end, sonic timbre and the unique frequency response that faithfully reproduce the tone of a vintage unit.

While working on it we decided to add the famous mid band section of the MEQ-5 making this a two in one unit allowing you the possibility to both boost or cut mid frequencies at the flip of a switch.

Built with premium components.

Utilizing Custom Sowter Transformers, three Premium Carnhill Inductors, NOS tubes, Corner Dubillier Capacitors and Allen Bradley Carbon Resistors we have paid tribute to this legend and believe it to be the most accurate and best sounding recreation available today.

Each unit is made by hand in Chile by our engineers with great care and detail and goes through a 72-hour burn making sure these EQ’s will perform flawlessly for many years to come.

NOS tubes and stepped switches are both available as optional upgrades to the MEQP-1A

If you’ve used an original Pultec before, we’re extremely confident the EQP-1A will put a big smile on your face every time you use it, however, if you’ve never touched the original before, as gear-lovers ourselves we understand that the only way to really know if this EQ is right for you is to put it through its paces. That’s why the EQP-1A comes with a 30-day money back guarantee. This allows you to get it into your studio and see how it impacts upon your recordings.
