Is this a pultec? I s there any chance a behringer product will be a vintage pultec? And that at under $300 new it'll have magic inductors?If it was, who would know but me and dudes like me who have had the privilege of using some old cool shit like this.What you get here is a passive EQ that acts a lot like a pultec. The amplifiers should be retubed right outta the damn box. The knobs are kinda detented, you know? So in a pair you could be fooled into thinking they match but use your ears. Use your ears ANYWAY. What sounds good is good. They have that open high end thing you want once some GE 12ax7s and mullard 12AT7s go in. These are a PITA to open by the way. How much mileage you get depends on your application. For my uses which are very specific and light handed they do the business. Big thumbs up. Its not apultec but find me another EQ that soudns this good for this kidna coin. Really, try me. Maybe a used Orban or Ashley but they don't sound this good. They work. They do a lot more. This DOES add something extra when you boost, maybe not what a real one does but it doesn't suck. Don't stop saving for a real pultec if you want one but remember this is an option and you can get piles of them if you have the space. I might buy 2 more. If you wanna get fancy you can mod a pair for better caps, mybe inductors and transformers but there's nothing WRONG with this unit stock.
My story is that I mentioned to my best friend Uli did these guys and since I'm the defacto mixer for everything he ever records he just called me one day and said "get anything from UPS?" I was like no, but they came the next day! Surprise present! In this context they're really outstanding.
