These are great kits, a nice build and all components are bagged up and ID’ed to speed up the process.

I built 1 of 4 last night! All went together nicely I was just missing 1x 22pf cap from one of the kits, hopefully I can pick one up over Christmas so I can get them all built.

Great kit, hopefully I’ll get time to calibrate it tonight.

Looks awesome! Can't wait for them to be back in stock!

Hi Kevin,

is it possible to get the LMF frequency down to 100 Hz?

I love the waves chanelstrip and use it always on drums, but i wish i could cut 120 Hz with it on my bassdrum.

It would be cool do the basic tweaks while trackin with your eq.

Thanks

Simon

Hello Simon
i think that is possible check the schematic and the values around the IC and 50k NLOG for the LMF band and play with this calculator on this webpage and check for the right filter. You may change resistors and capcitors in that path and make it work to your frequencies.

Thats also a good task and to understand how this unit works and modding is always fun.
But besides that you can use the LF Filter to Cut the 100 Hz also.

Hi all, I'm new here and very interested in those eq, and 9K J pre.
Kevin,  you talk about calibration for the Eq, do I need specific tool like signal genrerator or just a good mulitmeter will do the job?


thank you so much for your work!

Hi Cdp
All Build Info(BOM,Schematic/Overlay/Stepbuild/Calibration) avaivable under this link also on the first page
https://docdro.id/zwfShGU
you need a signal generator yes. but this can be also your soundcard using a DAW or i like to use Room Eq Wizard (REW) there are also nice tutorials avaivable from DIYRE how to use REW. The Calibration process is described in the docs fully and need aprx. an hour. if you used to it way shorter ;)

Thank you Kevin, it seems ok for me  :)

I can't find any post about the 4K J preamp kit, is there any info somewhere?
I know that the J serie was very particular and different from the otherSSL series , with more punch for example.
Can you tell us more about that? is it true to the original circuit?

Thank again!

Just a quick heads' up for those interested: I've received my order last thursday and finished them up yesterday. The kits are super-well layed out, building instructions are very clear. Building was easy, calibrating is no rocket science and comparing them to the plugins I know (Waves & Softube) they sound amazing.
I could see a mini 4k-desk in my not-so-distant future...
