Crane Song Insigna 500-Series Tube Equalizer

The Crane Song Insigna 500-Series Tube Equalizer is a coloring & shaping equalizer. Designed by Dave Hill, the Insigna is based around a dual triode circuit with a 12AX7 tube.

The Crane Song Insigna 500-Series Tube Equalizer uses a dual triode circuit with a 12AX7 tube. The EQ has 24 dB/Oct high pass and low pass filters each with 7 frequencies. The top and bottom bands are shelving each with 8 frequencies. The mid band is peaking with 8 frequencies. The three bands work by using buffered RC circuits in the negative feedback path around the tube amplifiers. The result is a fat sounding EQ rich in second harmonic triode tube color.

    Decent preamps, GREAT EQ

    Posted by Joshua Lovvorn on Apr 7th 2008

    The preamps on this unit are fair - not fantastic, but in the price range they're pretty decent. Where the unit really excels is the EQ. Use the line inputs on the AFC-2 and it becomes a 2-channel four-band EQ that sounds fantastic with just about anything. Dialing in a great rock guitar sound is easy and intuitive. Vocals? No problem. Well worth the price just for the EQ - the preamps (which are very usable, just not spectacular) are simply a bonus.
