Details
The Golden Age Project EQ-81 is a premium-grade, vintage-style EQ unit, inspired by 81-style modules. The versatile 4-band design features inductor based mid frequency bands as well as stepped frequency selection for added convenience. The wide frequency range makes it easy to achieve the sound you require, giving you full control spanning from 33Hz to 15kHz. Each frequency band has an off mode, so you can manually compare each band and the processed signal. The Class-AB circuitry and vintage-style electronics results in a warm and punchy tonal character, reminiscent of vintage EQs from the late 70s and early 80s. The EQ-81 features an external power supply for optimal signal integrity, as well as a selectable ground lift switch.

81-Style 4-Band EQ

The Golden Age Project EQ-81 utilises vintage-style electronics combined with modern innovations to produce this highly versatile EQ unit. The EQ-81 features a 4-band design, with each band featuring an off mode so you can easily check processed signals. At the heart of the EQ is the class-AB circuit, which is similar to the circuitry used in classic 81-style modules, without the use of high and low pass filters. With no integrated circuits in the signal path, the EQ retains its natural harmonic content for optimised audio performance. The resulting sound is punchy and warm with sweet, musical overtones. The classic-sounding tones are reminiscent of classic EQ units used in popular music recordings of history.

Flexible Control Section

The 4-band design features inductor-based mid frequency bands with a control range up to +/- 18dB. The wide frequency range allows you to achieve virtually any sound you can think of and sculpt. Tantalum capacitors are used within the signal path for improved audio fidelity, helping to capture that vintage warmth. The control section also boasts a selectable ground lift switch on the rear of the unit for added convenience. This allows you to eliminate any buzz or hum from problematic balanced/unbalanced connections.

Design & Connectivity

Golden Age Project pride themselves capturing the very essence of vintage-style musical equipment. The EQ-81 is no different with its retro-style attenuators, vintage-electronics and the flagship ruby red finish. Although the EQ-81 can be used on its own, it is intended to be used with other Golden Age Project models via an insert jack. It can also be used with other products with a low level unbalanced insert connector. The versatile design means it is suited to various sound sources and musical genres, making it highly flexible. The external power supply eliminates interaction with the audio circuits, retaining optimal signal integrity for improved audio fidelity and performance. The solid-build quality also ensures the EQ will last for years, becoming a staple of your studio setup.
