REDD Console and RS92 Mic Equaliser

Hello Geoff, I've noticed the Beatles records often have a very crisp and present sound (especially the early stuff in relation to the guitars and vocals). You have mentioned before that the sound was not EQ'd much, in which case how was this crisp sound achieved? I'm aware that the REDD console had a bass pad, and I've heard of an RS92 Neumann mic equaliser that had a bass cut. Were these implemented on things such as the vocals and guitars to cut out some lows and give them a more crisp sound, or was there another way this was achieved?

Many thanks, you're a fountain of knowledge and I've enjoyed reading your responses and your book.

+1 to this question. Actually i'm 100% sure the Beatles had some sort of EQ going on around the mids / upper mids / super low treble, but never been able to figure it out how they did it or how they made it sound so clean and not buzzy.
