Great River MEQ-1NV
Single channel EQ and single channel NV preamp assembled with rack kit
The EQ-1NV (four-band parametric, true inductor/capacitor, '70's British "1081/1083"-style) is routed via the patch loop jack on the Great River ME-1NV (two-gain-stage, dual-meter, '70's British "1073"-style mic pre).
In this configuration, the EQ is inserted between the mic preamp gain stages, providing a wide range of gain-based effects. With higher input gain / lower output gain, the EQ sections can be driven slightly harder for increased harmonics; with lower input gain / higher output gain, the EQ sounds very transparent. With its ultra-high headroom and ultra-low noise floor, the Great River MEQ-1NV is an indispensable tool for modern recording.
'Big Iron Vintage Sound' from custom-wound transformers'No-latency' output monitoring for DAW usersHigh-Z input is ideal for bass, guitar, and sound modules (FET-buffered and routed into the input transformer, a Great River exclusive)Gain stage monitoring via dual meters (also a Great River exclusive)Ultra quiet noise floor for outstanding performance at any gain setting
