Rare Nightpro EQ3D Stereo EQ

Designed by Cliff Maag of Maag Audio, the Nightpro EQ3D is the original stereo equalizer with AIR BAND.  This unique EQ has 5 fixed bands per channel with a 15 db boost or cut, with a high shelf AIR band that enhances the breath and detail of the input source.  The low Q minimal phase shift of the design provides a musical but transparent, not surgical or corrective EQ. If you are looking for an EQ to notch midrange or filter out background noise or rumble, look elsewhere. This EQ is designed to enhance the sound using overlapping  interactive bands that shape the output with a distinct and musical flavor.

The AIR BAND is best described tuned hi frequency shelving boost only EQ that when used carefully, can bring out detail and breath in a track. The SUB band is capable of rolling in lows that can be cleanly placed in a soundtrack or game mix.  It can be used on a stereo mix, keys, vocals; I've found it particularly effective on bringing out the best on mic'd guitar cabinets. It really is find to a bad sounding setting with the EQ3D, it is more a matter of choosing how you would like to shape the direction of the sound.

The EQ3d is a single rack space, dual channel (non-linkable) equalizer. Each channel has a bypass and XLR balanced inputs and outputs.

The original EQ3D is no longer manufactured as Nightpro/NHT is no longer in business. Cliff Maag's  new company offers 500 series modules at about $900 per channel, not including the chassis or power supply.

 The unit has only been used in a non-smoking studio since the mid to early 90's. There are a few scratches on the top of the unit and a slight marks on the rack ears. I am the first owner  and bought this when I had a much larger studio. I know I will eventually regret parting with this unit, but honestly it is more of a piece than I need right now.  I'd like to see it go to a good home.
