An exciting EQ built for Radial 500 Series and other API Power Racks, the Q3 EQ is a spectacular sounding induction coil EQ designed to accentuate the character of a voice or instrument without introducing the artifacts and phase anomalies commonly associated with typical gyrator (resistor-capacitor) equalizer circuits.
Radial Q3 Equalizer Features
- Coil EQ based on vintage EQs from the golden age
- A stunning combination of over 10,000 tonal variations
- Lets you color your sound with warmth and detail
- Works with Workhorse and all 500 series power racks
The Q3 features four easy to use controls: top-end boost, mid-range cut, low frequency bass boost and gain make-up to offset the signal loss that occurs when using passive equalization. Each of the three EQ bands employs a 12 position Grayhill switch with a different preset curve at each position. These are carefully crafted to introduce subtle accents, huge hype and warm sounding cuts that will flatter and enthral.
Each EQ setting is augmented with a miniature toggle switch that enables you to attenuate the curve for more subtle effects to deliver over 10,000 combinations of tonal bliss. And because presets are employed, it's easy to recreate favourite patches by setting the dials with 'easy to remember' 3-number combinations.
Adapted for use with the Radial Workhorse and older API Lunchbox racks, the Radial Q3 is plug-and-play easy to use. Simply feed it with a balanced line level signal and you are set to go. When connected to a Workhorse, the Omniport is assigned as an effects loop to allow various processing devices to be inserted into the EQ signal chain.
Radial 500 series preamps are not copies that follow the herd... they stand alone. Look inside and you will see 100% discrete electronics, exceptional workmanship and world class transformers by Jensen and Hammond. Careful attention has been paid to delivering quiet, confident performance while allowing you to push the envelope to add thunder bolts and lighting!
