The remarkable Pultec EQP-1A is an audio processing pioneer. Klark Teknik pays homage to this legend with the EQP-KT Classic Tube Equalizer. While you might be able to luck out and score a Pultec, it won't be cheap. The EQP-KT is affordable and designed for mastering modern day equalization.
At the heart of the EQP-KT is a vintage Class-A circuit design constructed from the highest-quality discrete components – all of which meet or exceed the Pultec EQP-1A’s original specifications. This is just one of the many ways the EQP-KT brings unparalleled precision and superb signal integrity into the new audio age.
EQP-KT owes its characteristic warmth to a set of premium, hand-selected 12AX7 and 12AU7 tubes. This time-tested combination provides ultra low-noise analog output with the ideal balance of tight, warm bass, silky-smooth mid range and brilliant, airy treble.
Ever since its formation in the 1970s, MIDAS has had a long history of innovation and leadership in the world of audio mixing consoles. Employed by the most famous touring acts and installations worldwide, legendary MIDAS consoles such as the XL4 and Heritage H3000 quickly became industry standards.
MIDAS has earned an impeccable reputation due to their no-compromise approach for audio and build-quality, and in particular for their Award-winning Mic Preamps, considered by experts as the industry’s best-sounding designs. Building on this legacy, the XL8 and PRO Series of Live Mixing Systems continue this great heritage of Award-winning audio quality.
KLARK TEKNIK is proud to incorporate custom-designed MIDAS Input and Output transformers in the EQP-KT for the ultimate in high-quality audio reproduction in both live and studio environments.
EQP-KT provides the kind of tone-sculpting flexibility that you simply won’t find on the average equaliser, such as the ability to boost and cut specific frequency content simultaneously. This functionality is a product of EQP-KT’s two-band design, which allows the boost and cut controls to work independently of one another – for incredibly flexible shelving. Both the LF Boost/Cut and HF Boost controls provide 7 frequency selections, along with a variable broad-bandwidth midrange control. Finally, EQP-KT’s HF Cut control lets you dial in the perfect amount of “air” to add a touch of finesse to your top-end content.
As mentioned earlier, the EQP-KT is anything but typical, and that includes the operation of its Bypass/EQ On switch. If you could see EQP-KT’s signal path, you’ll find: a MIDAS Input transformer; two-band equalizer; a makeup gain amplifier; and a MIDAS Output transformer. When the switch is in the Bypass position, the only section that is no longer part of the signal path is the equalizer.
