The Hendyamps Michelangelo Tube Equalizer is designed for buss, total mix, and mastering applications. It's focus is to be broad brush EQ used to enhance and sweeten your audio. Or well simply put, it is made to make your music sound great, with little effort. And that it does.

The Hendyamps Michelangelo Tube Equalizer is a discrete, Class A, all tube, stereo EQ with Jensen input and output transformers - that is completely focused on sonic beauty! This EQ is certainly not aimed at precisely targeting certain frequencies, for it is intended to be a broad strokes EQ that also acts as a harmonics generator. This one of a kind EQ is at home during any phase of the music production process (tracking, mixing, or mastering), for the overall sonic signature it leaves, coupled with its complete ease of use, is rivaled by none!

The Michelangelo features an AGGRESSION control, that alters the drive in the circuit, allowing you to push the tubes for extra saturation. The LOW, MID, and HIGH controls manipulate the three EQ bands, but in a way that adds more dynamic, harmonic content the higher the EQ is set. Take note that the Mid control covers a massive amount of territory while the Low and High controls are narrower by comparison. The AIR control boosts the ultra high frequencies and is typically a favorite control in this unit. LOW SHIFT changes the Low control in order to target all frequencies below 150hz or 80hz. MID SHIFT alters the response of the Low and Mid controls, essentially assigning the low mids to either control. HIGH SHIFT changes the High control in order to target the frequencies above 1khz or 2khz. The VINTAGE switch toggles between a “modern” mode (think more hifi), and a “vintage” mode (darker, older sounding).

As with all Hendyamps gear, the Michelangelo is built to order and offers some custom options. You can chose the different options at the drop-down menu on this product page. These options are as follows:

  • Standard Edition:
    • As stated on the description and Features listed on this page.
  • 1/3 Gain Range:
    • The Standard Michelangelo can also be ordered with the ranges of the EQ controls (Low, Mid, High, and Air) limited to approximately 1/3 of the normal gain range. This modification can often be more useful in a mastering context whereas the full range is often better in a tracking or mixing context.
  • Stepped Version:
    • The Michelangelo can also be ordered in a stepped version if desired, when precise recall is necessary. Each control is built using high quality Elma switches, and the controls are altered in the following ways:
      • Aggression actually remains unchanged, other than becoming stepped.
      • Low, Mid, High controls have been altered to offer +/- 6bd range (12db swing), with roughly .5db steps.
      • Air offers a 6db boost with roughly .5db steps.
      • Trim remains unchanged (from zero to max volume) in 2db steps. Max Trim = Unity
