New Lightning Boy Audio Flux Bender EQ
Lightning Boy Audio announces the availability of its new Flux Bender hardware passive stereo tube equalizer.
The LBA Flux Bender is based on a passive circuit featuring NOS 6X4 rectifier tubes and NOS 12AT7 preamp tubes, as well as input Sowter, interstage Jensen and output CInemag transformers, with no less than 60 oiled paper capacitors.
The Flux Bender includes boost/cut controls for highs and lows with variable bandwidth for the high boost. These controls are inspired from the famous Pultec EQP-1A.
The right and left channels are simultaneously managed by a set of controls, with a matching tolerance of 0.1%. The output volume controls are independent for each channel and can add up to 8dB of gain to the input signal.
Last, the Flux Bender includes 4 banks of 6 frequencies, one for each boost/cut control.
The EQ is powered externally via a Juicy Box that ships with the unit, with 110-120V or 220-240V options to choose when ordering.
The Flux Bender is handmade by Lightning Boy Audio in the USA, you can order it directly for $5000, shipping fees are free in the USA. More info at www.lightningboyaudio.com.
