Neumann W492 for universal purpose

Hey there,

Would you guys consider the Neumann W492 being universal and strong enough to serve for me as my go to at all situations eq? Thought this to be my alternative for instead of getting a hold of the super expensive racked black knob ssl 4000 dingis.

What ya sayin?

Bump - I've got a line on 2 racked for 200€ - I'm without outboard eq and have decided (after briefly owning a sontec) that for precise stuff I've got brainworx and dmg - for briadstroke sounds I reckon stuff like this? Thoughts from users please?

The W492 is popular for mastering and all Neumann modules that I know of are great. If you need something to boost or cut a few db's with minimum sonic degradation to the signal, you could not go wrong with these. If you need something to do major sonic surgery and tone shaping, they might or might not work for you. It just depends on what your needs are. Given that these, and many other classic German eq modules are under priced given their quality, you might consider getting the W492 for more minor adjustments and if you need more radical tone shapers, adding something like a Siemens W295 (or TAB/Telefunken W95/395/695) which have thickness and character to spare.

If you declined the offer, I'll have the racked pair for €200 if you can put me in touch with the seller?
