some finished Pultec EQP1A - 'pimp my pultec'
« on: February 23, 2006, 03:33:30 PM »
Good evening.

Because of the ongoing pimp action :green:  I would like to show some of my home-brewed pultecs which I'd done with my weller 'magic stick'. '
Pimp pimp hurray'. This time it's not a 'G-Unit'. :wink:

I can't remember when I started this project.. too long ago. It lasts a loong time until I got all the original looking parts. I refreshed some old dakaware knobs and they look like new. There is a LED behind the jewel light because I don't want to change bulbs and the original attachement wasn't isolated to the case. The Frontpanels are painted and engraved. (don't try to paint a panel without using a primer...! if you want to use engravings). To get a most original colour I visited a studio with an original pultec. But it seems that the original colour differs much. (grey, green, blue..) The only thing I haven't found were these ugly old screws... maybe I'll find some soon.

A big 'thank you' to Steffen, Michael Krusch,  jrmintz, elco, cayocosta and the hole diy gang!

Frank.

Seeing this huge pile of EQ makes me wonder what has been the highest 19" box ever spotted... ?

How many HE ?

(with a frontpanel in one piece of, say, ehh, metal?)

Does it have original trafos inside? That would kill me.
