Pultec EQP-1A3 Program Equalizer - Standard Version
Classics Have Come and Gone. This One Came Back. PULTEC.
While there are lots of EQP-1A3 clones out there, nothing comes close to replicating the sound of the original Pultec version. This no-loss passive equalizer is perfect for bringing heavy bass, perfect highs and an enveloping sense of warmth that is signature to the recordings of Motown and The Beatles. The equalizer’s unique two-band design offers supreme flexibility and control over both high and low shelf. Need an equalizer that has power and warmth distinct unto its own? The EQP-1A3 is the essential piece of gear for you.
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.

I recently bought a pair of EQP-1A3's and I am more than happy with them. I had been using some high end Pultec style hardware which are fantastic in there own way but did not quite get the sound. Real Pultecs have a sound that once you hear is impossible to unhear. The low end has a focus and presence that is visceral. Like a perfect pillow in a silk pillow case. Plus the customer service is amazing. I had an issue with one and Steve Jackson called me to make sure I was taken care of.
The 16khz on vocals in legendary. Open things up sky high without any nasty phase shift. The 60hz on kick drum is money also. I print alot of differnet sources through mine in the mix so that one channel for me goes a long way.
