Pultec EQM-1S3 Program Equalizer - Mastering Version

Classic tube equalizer with enhanced mastering controls
MFR# EQM-1S3-117V

Product Description

Classics Have Come and Gone. This One Came Back. PULTEC.

Built on the same model as the EQP-1A3, Pultec’s EQM-1S3 mastering equalizer advances the recording process with even more frequency options on the high band. In addition, the design offers two separate bands that make it possible to have supreme control over both the high and low shelf. With a unique vintage look and modern electronics inside, this new version of a classic piece of recording gear will be a perfect fit in any studio.

 


 

Revived and alive, Pultec is back and here to stay. Through a decade of relentless commitment to perfection, Dr. Steven Jackson restarted Pulse Techniques' production of the original PULTEC equalizers, making the magnificent low end, silky-sweet high frequencies and wide-open sound available again for the first time in 30 years.


Considering the rarity of vintage units, the new Pultecs at Vintage King make the classic Pultec accessible again. They’ve been responsible for making recordings sound great for over 60 years and will continue on, thanks to Dr. Steven Jackson’s great new gear.

Truly sublime . The pultec in all its sonic glory in a world where you can’t be sure what you are buying any more it’s reassuring to know that Dr Steve Jackson is applying true craftsmanship to these works of art.

I’ve used these for 28 years but never owned a pair- I love them- the detects are great for my primary use- 2mix- and the build quality is 10/10

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.
Phil T.
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.

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.
