Overview

The Dangerous BAX EQ is one of the smoothest sounding EQs you will use.

It features a world-class design of Peter Baxandall’s legendary 1950’s tone control that has graced hundreds of millions of hi-fi systems, plus 2 high pass / low pass filters.

This EQ is a fantastic tool for tracking, mixing, and mastering.

Besides the ultra clean and natural sound, which is achieved through the minimized phase delay design, the BAX EQ provides broad tonal control that will not alter the intrinsic sonic character of the source.

Features

  • Exact model of the mastering-grade Dangerous Music BAX  EQ
  • Made by Brainworx!
  • World-Class High-Fidelity Tone Control Equalizer
