AML Pultec Kit - Chandler TC and the rest

AML Pultec Kit - Chandler TC and the rest


I had a dilemma.

So i am looking fro my first EQ (eventually stereo) and I am looking for a Pultec sound, but not specifically.

I have experience with DIY stuff so once I saw the AML Pultec kit and was very impressed. I have to build one eventually. I only have experience with the sound from plug-ins and I use them a lot.

The other option that catch my eye was the Chandler Tone Control. besides the fact that I have been lusting for a chandler unit for a while, I found it has a similar idea to the pultec BUT!, separate Frequencies on the Low End to boost or cut. In the High Mids, and Highs you can Boos or Cut as well, big plus.
It is a passive section in the Lows and the Highs it is an active.

I make (Personally) Electronic/80s-disco music but I do record bands/friends , etc.

for converters I have an Symphony 8x8.

For preamps I have a lunchbox with 2x CAPI VP28 and on the way its a Heritage 73JR

--Also, has anyone heard the Manley enhanced Pultec EQ? goes for (2200 $) I guess...I just found about it recently and I haven't read too much.

Well Thanks in advance.

Having a 500 system, you might read up on the Analog Allstars kit. I built one in a hotel room just yesterday in a matter of hours. I haven't heard it yet, so no report there. There are plenty of comments from others about sound to be found.

Actually I have!

I saw pictures and they look amazing. I am just not sure, I was looking for a 19" unit for now since I am populating the 500 series case with Preamps.

I read about the A Designs PEQ too.
