The Little Devil EQ by Chandler Limited is a small package equalizer with a huge vintage sound. It is an inductor-based EQ with discrete circuits that gyrator circuits of most other modern EQs cannot touch. It features a classic Baxendall tone control and all units are handwired using through-hole components and handwiring. The high-quality build and English circuitry all contribute to an updated take on a vintage sound. All units have been upgraded to avoid any power compatibilities with 3rd party racks and lunchboxes. Overall, the Little Devil EQ is a top quality, hand-built EQ which will add warmth and vintage character to your tracks.
Note: Chandler recommends installing into a rack with an external power supply, as internal power supplies may cause noise issues.
Small Package with Huge Sound
English circuits, top quality components, and custom transformers all contribute to the warm but open bass. All of these features are packaged into a unit which fits into a 500 series rack or lunchbox.
Discrete Amp with Custom Transformers
The quality amp and custom transformers deliver clean power to the EQ and prevent unwanted noise and hum from entering the signal path.
