I'm totally biased so take this with a grain of salt... Kush Audio Electra
EQ. It just gets me from point A to Point B effortlessly without mucking with the character of my source sound. No matter how you turn the knobs it just won't get harsh or grainy. There is some serious capability to sculpt the low end between the proportional-Q low mid band, fixed low shelf, and variable high pass filter. And it's a killer affordable price.
I also really like my True Systems PT2-500 preamps. I know transformerless clean preamps aren't high fashion, but this thing has a detented pot with great feel, a meter, HPF, and a DI input with thru jack that I recently discovered is capable of capturing some of the BEST bass tones I've ever recorded. I had been dismissing/overlooking that DI for years. Never touched it. The one day a couple months ago decided to plug into it. It was MASSIVE! I was really impressed.
I think the Lindell modules are a great buy. I have the compressor which is very useable on many sources. The blend knob, sidechain HPF and meter are nice touches. Overall build quality exceeded my expectations for something that affordable. I've also heard the Pultec style EQ at a friend's studio. Again, more sound than you are paying for.
