Manley Stereo Pultec EQ

Manley’s modern take on the Pultec EQ - in stereo! - with extra frequencies the original never had; a vastly superior power supply and famous Manley line amps complete the package. Manley's Pultec EQ is magic on drums, and killer on guitars.

The MANLEY ENHANCED PULTEC EQP-1A is Manley's own interpretation of the historic Pultec Equalizer as originally produced by Pulse Techniques, Inc. These Manley Pultec units employ a simple and clean all-tube make-up gain block to reamplify the signal after the passive EQ circuit. EQ may be set to 'flat' positions or BYPASSED 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. Manley has added a couple extra frequencies too. The rear mounted input switch selects 0 degrees or 180 degrees PHASE INVERT for the balanced gold pin XLR input or the transformerless unbalanced bridging input (1/4" jack) may be selected in that switch's middle position.

The Manley Enhanced Pultec has a vastly superior B+ power supply, with regulated and balanced heater supply. Manley's line amp is known to be killer-sounding. The components used today just weren't available in the 1960's. So, if you want a project with crackling carbon pots, dirty open frame wafer switches, 5% and 10% tolerance noisy carbon resistors, exposed tubes sticking out the back of the 3U chassis, etc., go pay top dollar for an antique Pultec! The MANLEY PULTEC EQP-1A, available in both single and 2-channel versions, uses 1 x 12AX7WA and 1 x 6414 (or 5965) in our ALL-TUBE single-ended line amplifier for the gain make-up and extra-beefy sound; gain is factory set for unity but additional gain is available by a rear mounted feedback adjustment trimpot. Like our 40dB Mic Preamps, the Manley Pultecs offer both transformer coupled balanced and direct capacitor coupled unbalanced outputs for easy interface and sonic variety. Kick drum? Bring on the Pultecs and all the iron you can muster! You'll soon discover the power and magic of having those individual Low Frequency BOOST and CUT controls in that LF shelf circuit.

Stereo Pultec EQ Features

  • MANLEY input transformer with nickel laminations potted in mu-metal case. 3K Ohm input Z
  • PHASE REVERSE switch for balanced XLR input

  • Silent conductive plastic BOOST & CUT controls
  • Sealed gold-contact Greyhill frequency select switches
  • Vacuum Tubes: 1 x 12AX7WA (gain) and 1 x 6414 (or 5965) White Follower
  • Hi-current drive <50 Ohm LO-Z XLR & 1/4" outputs
  • Balanced Transformer-Coupled XLR Outputs via MANLEY 9611
  • Flat frequency response from 10Hz-70KHz
  • <0.01% THD @ 1kHz
  • S/N Ratio: 116 dB
  • Adjustable FEEDBACK / GAIN: Unity ±5 dB
  • Max. output: +30 dBv
  • Power consumption: 18 watts
  • Operating mains voltage: Units are purpose built for original destination country's mains voltage: 100V, 120V, or 220-240VAC as indicated on the serial number badge. Power transformer must be replaced in order to change mains operating voltage. 120VAC units may NOT be rewired to put the primaries of the power transformer in series for 220-240V operation or a large radiated field of hum will develop. If changing locations/voltages, the power transformer must be replaced with the dedicated one for the voltage at which it will operate.
  • Mains Voltage Frequency: 50~ 60Hz
  • Dimensions: 19" x 1 3/4" x 10" (occupies 1u)
  • Shipping weight: 12 lbs.
