I just picked up a pair of these racked at a good discount when i was purchasing some pre's private sale.
Why don't I see a lot of raving about these? Too worried the price will jack up?
These EQ's are gorgeous. Amazing tracking eq. Fixed highs and lows have the perfect tone to them. Mid band is awesome as well. Very much the same vein as my tg channel eq's but somewhat different. Super smooth on every band at any amount of boost.
Who out there has the pleasure of using these and is keeping it a secret?
Maybe they are more rare than i would anticipate having stumbled across them locally. Anyone know if there was a specific console these were originally installed in?
We once had a pair of racked Neumann x73 modules here for testing, didn't buy them for budget reasons however. Which is a pity. They were great, clean but still with some character to them, you could hit them pretty hard without very noticeable pumping. Think "broadcast vocal comp". Also very cool are the v276 sitral preamps. A little noisy but everything, including line signals, comes out sounding damn expensive :-)
i made a few recording with it
but unfortunately i haven't got the time to restaure it,
so if anybody is interested, i may let it go for a fair offer
as such lovely desk should be restaured and used passionately
ps it is the perfect vintage front end / 8ch summing box, and built like a tank !
i'm new here and read this and other threads with pleasure.
i bought a couple of w295b's - they are not yet racked and i wonder, whether it is better to use them as an insert (with my mackie 8 bus - not the greatest, i know) or try to get an m444 like the one from livingstone.
price/versatility vs. quality... keeps me thinking and thinking and...
how do you connect/use your w295b's - any problems with the specs of the different era's?
