    • API 560B Graphic EQ (x2)

      API 560B Graphic EQ

      Originally conceived for use in API consoles of the '60s and '70s, the 560B is a unique device designed to accomplish tasks that no other EQ can. Extremely fast to set and reset using accurate zero detents, the curve shaping potential of the 560B remains unmatched.

    • API 550B Discrete 4 Band EQ (x2)

      API 550B Discrete 4 Band EQ

      Based on API's original 550 from the late '60s, the API 550b is a continuation of the EQ that played a major role in the history of music recording, but with an additional filter band and several new frequencies. Incorporating API's exclusive circuitry and proprietary components (such as the legendary API 2520 Op Amp), the 550b artfully blends the past with the present.

    • API 550A Discrete 3 Band EQ (x2) iHandwired Vintage./i

      API 550A Discrete 3 Band EQ

      Few equalizers enjoy the respect and admiration of the coveted API 550A. Designed by the now-legendary Saul Walker in the late '60s, the discrete 550A was first used as a modular OEM equalizer. As the industry rapidly embraced the sonic quality of the 550A, it quickly found its way into many custom console designs by Frank DeMedio and other leading engineers. Many of these consoles are still in use today.

      DBX 902 De-esser

      The dbx 902 de-esser was introduced in the early 80's. It was available as a module for the 900 series racks, which can be compared to the now more popular 500 series format.

      Its ability to remove the harshness without degrading the overall tone made it very popular. It became a classic and most studios still have 902 de-essers in their racks today.
