It has long been recognized that vacuum tubes impart a unique 'warmth' and 'musicality' to an audio signal, but many of the 'classic' tube equalizers fall short of the technical performance demanded in today's digital recording age.

At a glance

  • Variable input level of -20dB to +20dB ensures compatibility with a wide range of input source material and enables the user to optimize signal level and drive the tubes 'soft' or 'hot' as required.
  • LED bar graph displays give a clear indication of the input signal level.
  • Variable 12dB/Octave roll-off high-pass filter adjustable from - 20Hz to 500Hz
  • Four main equalizer sections with six carefully chosen overlapping frequencies and a separate tube stage for increased harmonic clarity.
  • Variable bandwidth from 0.3 Octave to 3 Octaves and +18dB of Cut and Boost.
  • BASS frequencies (Hz) 20, 32, 50, 80, 125, 200
  • LO-MID frequencies (Hz) 100,180, 250, 400, 650,1K
  • HI-MID frequencies (kHz) 0.5, 0.8,1.2, 2.0, 3.2, 5.0
  • TREBLE frequencies (kHz) 2.5, 4, 6,10,15, 25
  • Low Pass Filter. A variable 12dB/Octave roll-off filter adjustable from 2.5kHz to 42kHz enables the user to remove high-frequency interference or to band limit excessively high levels of high frequencies.
  • Two additional tube stages in the output section of each channel for 'soft clipping'.
  • Master bypass switch for each channel each of the parametric and shelving filters has its own separate bypass switch.
  • Levels of -10dBu and +4dBu are selectable using a rear-panel switch.
  • Insert point 1/4" jack connectors on the rear panel enable direct connection to the Side chain or Insert points of the Drawmer 1960 Mic Pre-Amp/ Vacuum Tube Compressor. 
  • Balanced Inputs and outputs on XLR connections.

It has long been recognized that vacuum tubes impart a unique 'warmth' and 'musicality' to an audio signal, but many of the 'classic' tube equalizers fall short of the technical performance demanded in today's digital recording age.

Designed to complement the widely acclaimed Drawmer 1960 Mic Pre-Amp Vacuum Tube Compressor, the Drawmer 1961 Vacuum Tube Equalizer combines low noise circuitry with no fewer than twelve active tube stages to provide two channels of exceptional equalization possessing unique 'personality. Rather than employ a continuously variable resistor as a means of frequency control, 1961 utilizes the same rotary 'step' switching system used in vintage designs. This enables the component values for each frequency band to be optimized for uncompromising performance across the entire audio spectrum and also makes setting up more accurate, particularly when treating stereo signals.

The design of the 1961 allows the user to control the amount of 'warmth' by deciding how hard to drive the tubes giving a sound as 'clean as the best discrete solid state designs or as 'hot' as the 'hottest' classic tube designs. The 1961 and 1960 Can be 'interlinked' to provide, in effect, a two-channel vacuum tube mixing console, - the perfect mastering or post audio 'sweetening' tool.
