Chandler Limited Germanium Tone Control EQ

The Chandler Limited Germanium Tone Control EQ uses passive and active equalizer technology for the best of both worlds! The Tone Control delivers smooth and fat tone in the Germanium tradition.

Chandler Limited Germanium Tone Control EQ Details

The Chandler Limited Germanium Tone Control EQ uses active and passive EQ circuits in combination with the Germanium amplifier developed for the Germanium Pre and incorporates the versatile Feedback and Drive controls as well. All of the bands use inductors for the fattest smoothest tone possible. The passive low frequency section is selectable between "Pultec/Lang" interactive curves and a more standard low frequency with pass filter configuration for maximum flexibility. The Treble and Presence bands are active and are designed to sound like your favorite British EQs from yesteryear. The Tone Control continues the Germanium tradition of undeniable sound with maximum flexibility at a reasonable price. Fans of the Chandler Limited Germanium Preamp are sure to love it!

This Chandler Limited unit requires a PSU-1 Power Supply. The PSU-1 can power two Chandler units.

Chandler Limited Germanium Tone Control EQ Features

  • Germanium Drive: This controls the input gain of the Germanium amp. The amount of gain from this is related to the Feedback control position.
  • Feedback Control: Controls the amount of out signal fed from the amplifier output back to its input. As well as acting as a volume type control, this knob seriously affects the tone of the unit. With feedback to the left there is less volume, less Total Harmonic Distortion, and more high frequencies. With feedback to the right there is more volume, more Total Harmonic Distortion, and a low end peak around 30hz. Combine this with the Germanium Drive control, thick, and pad switches for a cool variety of sounds.
  • Individual bypass for passive and active EQ sections
  • Interactive/Independent switch: Use this toggle to select between Interactive "Pultec/Lang" type curves where you can boost and cut at the same time to create strange and wonderful EQ combinations or a more standard low frequency with pass filter combination.
  • Cut Control: 0-20db at 20, 30, 40, 60, 150, 200, 240, 320 hz and is specially tuned for use with Interactive and Independent modes. 20-60 hz settings are sharp 18db/octave cuts to cleanly remove very low frequencies when in Independent mode. 150-320 hz are shelf type cuts that create the fun curve combinations when in Interactive mode.
  • THICK Section: This is a variation on the THICK setting on the Germanium Pre Amp. It is the passive portion of the equalizer and has controls for boosting and cutting at the same time to create great combinations in either Interactive or Independent modes. Boost is 0-20bd at 35, 50, 70, 90, 120, 220 hz and is selectable between bell or shelf.
  • Presence Control: This is an active portion with 15db of boost or cut on eight frequencies. For variety the Q is slightly sharper than the bell setting on the Treble band. EQ points are 300, 500, 800, 1200, 3300, 4100, 6200, and 8300.
  • Treble Control: This active band has 18db of boost or cut and is selectable between bell and shelf curves. The bell selections are at a wider Q than the Presence band for flexibility and there are eight EQ points - 3k9, 4k7, 6k8, 8k2, 10k, 12k, 16k, 20k.

One of the best tone sculpters August 16, 2017
Reviewer: Edward Sroczynski from Westwood, NJ United States  
The Chandler Germanium Tone Control EQ is exactly as advertised. The tonal variations are multiple and plenty of fun to experiment with. The Tone Control adds a deep resonance with the option of a clear, smooth top end. I am extremely impressed, I landed a sharp discount on a second to run duel Germanium Tone Control EQs in my gig set up.
