Golden Age Project EQ-73 PREMIER 3-Band Equalizer

Desktop equalizer single-channel equalizer based off of the EQ section in the classic 1073 module without the high pass filter with a dual inductor based mid frequency band and stepped frequency selection plus a wide selection of frequencies from 20 Hz to 24 kHz and a control range of up to ±18 dB

MFR# Project EQ-73 PREMIER

Product Description

The Class A circuit used in the Golden Age Project EQ-73 PREMIER is similar to the eq section in the classical 1073 module, without the high pass filter. Additional frequencies have been added and the mid frequency band uses two inductors, the higher value of the second one is used for the two lowest frequencies, 160 Hz and 240 Hz, to achieve an optimal response.

The sound character is warm, punchy, sweet and musical. These classic characteristics have been heard on countless recordings through the years and it is a versatile sound that works very well on most sound sources and in most genres. The essence of this sound is now available at a surprisingly low cost, making it available to nearly everyone.

The EQ-73 PREMIER has stepped frequency controls that offers a wide selection of frequencies from 20 Hz to 24 kHz. The low and high frequency bands are shelving and the mid frequency band is of the bell type.

The control range is ±15 dB for the two lower bands and ±18 dB for the high frequency band.

There are separate bypass switches for all three bands.

The EQ-73 PREMIER can be used either as a standalone EQ or connected to the insert jack of one of the Golden Age Premier or Project preamps. Combining one of our PRE-73 preamp´s and an EQ-73 PREMIER and using a UNITE rack kit to mount them together, one will get a 19-inch 1073-style unit at a low cost and with a great sound!

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.

The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.
Michael D.
From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
