Pope Audio BAX 2020 'Classic' 500 Series EQ & Drive

500 Series Baxendall style EQ and drive featuring a GAR2520 Class A input discrete op amp and a NE5532 balancing output op amp

MFR# Bax 2020 Classic

Product Description

The Pope Audio BAX 2020 Classic combines analog 'Hi' & 'Lo' frequency gain control, in a compact, fuss-free module. This version utilizes the GAR2520 DOA on the input, giving you a chance to "drive" the input stage to get the desired level of "flavor" from the DOA (Discrete Op Amp). An NE5532 DOA is used on the output. When not required in the signal path, the unit is in hard bypass, meaning that the signal is left 100% unaffected by the unit.

What is a Baxendall EQ?

The Baxendall equalizer is a simple shelving EQ, but unlike traditional shelving EQs, which have a steep rise above a set frequency (i.e. 2 kHz), a Baxandall shelving curve (named after Peter Baxandall) exhibits a gently rising slope (or falling if you are cutting at a certain frequency), which sounds a lot more natural. These gentle slopes also mean that the signal does not suffer so much phase distortion that other EQ designs can introduce.

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.

Thank you so much! Vintage King has been so fair and easy to work with. I can't thank you enough. It feels good to trust such a hefty purchase to folks who are so helpful and knowledgeable. Vintage King is a sound designers dream store.

You guys have excellent customer service and I am excited about the next upgrade I complete on my fifth recording facility. I've been in the studio business for forty plus years. The salesman I worked with at Vintage King was the best of the best. You all rock!

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.
Thomas W.
I am a new customer of yours. You guys provided me the absolute best deals in ordering all the equipment to power my brand new recording studio. Your customer service is amazing and i will always deal with you from here on out.
