In this video & epaper series I will show you everything you need to know about this famous passiv tube equalizer and
– more importantly –
how to get this legendary piece of gear in your studio by building one yourself!
Ok – first, let’s start with the video. In this introduction I’ll give you a brief and basic overview about the iconic tube program equalizer aka the Pultec EQP-1a. We’ll also listen to it and dive a little deeper into how it does its magic…
Inspired by your comprehensive feedback over the last two weeks (see comments below), I decided to take a turn and dedicate this video completely to your main questions and concerns which seems to hold a lot of you back from building your own gear.
As a professional interpreter, I work on rockets and I deal with precision-machined parts and finishes on a daily basis. The execution (sheet metal bending, cut-outs) and the paint job is absolutely fantastic! Way to go! Your hard work means a lot to us gear heads.
I really had a lot of fun shooting these videos and I hope you also had fun watching them – and more importantly will have even more fun Building Your Legend.
So now, your turn – plug out and play the real thing:

How we’ll make it happen
As mentioned in the videos we can only make a new project happen together – meaning we are going for a GROUP BUY. We have done this several times in the past for all our available projects. It has proven to be the best way to bring these projects to life which otherwise wouldn’t have been possible.
For better understanding & transparency I have set up a small roadmap for you. To be more on the safe side, the timeframes for each phase are generously estimated so if everything runs smoothly we may be quicker. But although we prepared this very carefully, if unforeseen obstacles arise (and experience tells there’s quite some possibility for that) it is also possible that it may take a little longer.
Roadmap to your Kit
Lastly some really important notes & conditions – please click on them & read thoroughly!
As we face minimal order quantities for several parts of the kit we’ll need at least 30 kits pre-ordered to make it happen. If we should somehow not reach that goal (I really don’t think so) the group buy is off and we will refund the preorders that have already been paid for.
UPDATE: I’m extremely happy to announce we already crossed the minimum of 30 kits preordered within 48 hours after the announcement of the kit!
And that means THE KIT WILL DEFINITELY HAPPEN!!
Thank you so much for the confidence folks and I promise you won’t be disappointed! For those of you who have been hesitating – you can now join the preorders with your minds set at ease 🙂

Please Note that if your are located outside the EU there may be additional costs for import duty & taxes. Please check with your local authorities.
With your pre-order you agree to opt in to the analogvibes newsletter so we can keep you up to date with the progress.
The already finished e-papers will be sent to you with the order confirmation. The upcoming ones follow via email once the kits are ready for shipping.
We highly recommend though, that you create an account during checkout, so you have all the e-papers in their latest versions – always accessible in one place.
Any questions left? If yes, put them in the comments for me, so I can reply to them. Maybe some others have the same questions (praise is also welcome ;-).
You might also have a quick look at the Meet-The-Legend-Page of the Pultec EQP-1A for details on that legendary piece of gear.
Well, then go for it!
Pre-orders are closed – The Group Buy has been successfully launched – Thank you guys!
