The Kludge Audio 506 equalizer is the inductor-based equalizer that everybody wanted in 1975. But we couldn't make it then. Nobody could. The technology didn't exist.
The Kludge Audio 506 equalizer is a standard inductor-based topology just like we were using in 1975, but it's built with materials and performance that were impossible back then.
We started with a classic inductor design and took it to the limit with custom built inductors and precision amplification that sound cleaner and more subtle than anything possible before.
It's the best of old and new. It's an old design, built by hand with traditional methods and solid design, but built to be cleaner and more accurate without losing the characteristic sound of the inductor equalizer.
No fancy options. Just three bands of great sound, with tunable top and bottom shelf filters and a widely-sweepable midrange peaking filter. Not too wide. Not too narrow. It's just right.
It's the inductor equalizer of the future. And it's here today at your dealer for $799.00.
This brief Audio Sample will give you some idea of the range of abilities of the 506. Notice the lack of comb filtering and phasing effects and the clean high frequency boost.
