Hey Phill, would you mind sharing some of your personal favorite EQ's that you have come to love over the years and what sources you love them on?
Used to love the Helios fixed EQ from early 1970's. Top 10K, Bass 50Hz, and 4 or 5 mid's - 5K, 3.5K, 2.8, 1.7 and 1K (I think) Very coloured but I loved it. Also most early Neve's from the 1970's. I don't add much EQ - usually subtracting - 190 a favourite to get rid of. I don't have specific EQ or pre-amp favourites - whatever is around.
