I had one here for about a month to check out, ( I would still have it but it was needed back as they were not in production yet ) and aside from the sweet top this thing just blew me away in it's ability to handle the bottom!!!!!!
Talk about putting some sweet sweet ass in the bottom - Wow!
I generally do not go too heavy on the bottom but this thing sounded so sweet it was like a siren, ( a dangerously fascinating woman who's singing lures seafarers to certain destruction and death ) calling a sailor, it's hypnotic.
I tried sculpting a few sources and just loved this thing the way it made things set.
I did not want to send it back.
When they are available I will, read my lips, will have one!
And if my wife isn't looking maybe two.
Well, I have waited for what seems like forever and finally I have it!
Wow, wow! boom!!!!!!
Oh and once again let me say -
talk about putting some sweet sweet ass in the bottom, wow, what a bottom she has!
This thing sounds so sweet, it is like a siren, calling a sailor, it's hypnotic!

I absolutely love the new look.
The new units have some very ergonomic knobs that are very very nice looking and very functional.
I have large hands and large fingers, but still there are no issues, tight, but, perfection.
A very elegant and sweet solution for what is only a limited amount of acreage.
As I have mentioned the bottom is a must hear to believe and the rest is creamy smooth.
I have been running vocals through this for some time now and it still just blows me away.
Pulled some sssssss's out of a vocal track just the other day, push the top a bit and wow, I just love it.
If you have a 500 form rack or lunch box, you need this EQ!
If you do not have a 500 format lunchbox or rack - get one!
A-Designshas a big winner with this.
I want to mention a few things I feel are required for me to like a product or company.
1 ) service
2 ) quality
3 ) the sound
If the service sucks - well I do not get the gear!
If the quality sucks - well I do not get the gear!
and if the sound sucks, okay you get it - I do not get the gear!
So how dose the A-Designsand the EM-PEQstack up?
Well they get top billing from me on service, on quality, and on sound.
I got this one having placed my order when I first heard about them, so glad I did.
I heard the first run is sold out so I feel special now : )
I was told retail would be $1,450.00
I think MAP is $1,250.00, for this at that price you really need to take a look.
Not sure about street but you can always haggle with the dealers on your own.
It has been some time since I first started writing about my thoughts on this EQ.
Now it has been for some time, ( a bit over a year now ) I have to say I love it more now than when I first got it!
And yes I do still plan on adding yet another to my rack!
Also just a note, watch for news reviews to be posted here very soon!
