Manley is the only authorized user of the original Western Electric passive EQ circuitry previously licensed to Pulse Techniques, Inc. found in the well-known (and still sought after in the used market) antique Pultecs. Manley's 'enhanced' Pultec EQs deliver the same sweet sound and control, but with modern circuitry that sets new standards in today's contemporary recording facilities. You can set the EQ to 'flat' positions or bypass it entirely. All boost and cut controls are continuously variable conductive plastic potentiometers for absolutely silent operation and long life. The single rack unit monoblocks occupy one-third of the space of the 'antique Pultecs', an important consideration for allocation of outboard rack space. The rear mounted input switch selects 0 degrees or 180 degrees phase invert for the balanced gold pin XLR input, or you can select the transformerless unbalanced bridging input (1/4" jack). All Enhanced Pultec models feature balanced XLR and 1/4" Hi-Z inputs, and balanced XLR outputs.

Hannes Bieger in his Berlin studio. His name may be unfamiliar to many, but that’s only because he works behind the scenes.

We peeked over Hannes’ shoulder while he worked in order to learn a bit more about his philosophy and his approach to his trade.more
