The AM/CHA1 from Chandler Limited is an inductor based 15 band EQ which was designed to compete against classic API or Pultec based EQs which will run you thousands of dollars more by comparison. The EQ is musical and very natural sounding, mainly due to the state-variable filter, custom wound Cinemag inductors, and grain oriented silicon steel transformers. The resulting audio has smooth highs, natural mids, and thick, powerful bass. Intergrating the AM/CHA1 into your studio should be a breeze using the 1/4" TRS connectors and you can mount it in any open 2U high industry standard rack case.

High Quality 2U Rack Mount Chassis
The AM/CHA1 is a 2U Rack Mount EQ which is constructed of high grade metals ensuring it will stand the test of time.
15 Bands of Adjustable Boost/Cut
The AM/CHA1 features adjustable boost and cut at 65Hz, 115Hz, 290Hz, 205Hz, 500Hz, 840Hz, 1.76kHz, 560Hz, 1.2kHz, 3.1kHz, 6.1kHz, 2.4kHz, 3.7kHz, 8.2kHz, and 15.6kHz. Each band also features variable Q to add to the flexibility of the applications along with a selectable peak or shelf for low and high frequencies.
Inductor Based Circuitry
The Inductor based circuitry lends itself to a wonderful natural and musical quality that gyrator circuits cannot achieve. This design also gives the AM/CHA1 a desirable vintage character which includes smooth highs, natural mids, and thick, powerful bass.
Rivals the Sound of More Expensive Units
Using mastering-grade inductor EQs as a reference, Black Lion tweaked and refined the AM/CHA1 to rival the sound of Neve, Massenburg, API, and Tube Tech units which cost thousands of dollars more.
Fully Coupled 1/4" TRS I/Os
High quality fully transformed 1/4" TRS connectors make sure the signal in and out of the AM/CHA1 is clean and as expected. These connectors ensure that there is no degradation or artifacts and allows the internal circuitry to have the cleanest signal possible to process.
