I don"t know about anyone building you one but I believe there a few kits out there you can build that aren"t too bad if your handy with a soldering iron...

Maybe something like this :

PAiA - 6760K Parametric Equalizer Kit, Studio Series, 6760K


I have built a couple of there kits and they are pretty good ....


cheers

If someone's going to build you a decent equalizer, chances are that you're going to end up paying them more that it would cost to go buy a readily available model. The time involved and the parts cost, when unable to take advantage of large-scale orders like the big boys, is rather large. Just a heads up, as I've pondered building one myself. When i crunch the time and numbers, its only worth it as an educational experience and for the cool factor of having a homemade piece.

Thanks for the heads up . I was thinking if you go into a tech shop with a EQ kit and the specks they can put together a Class A unit at a fraction of the cost .

No kidding.

Here's a great design for a parametric EQ:

Spectrum Analyzer and Equalizer Designs

Scroll to about halfway down the page to "Equalizer Designs."
