The Radial Q3 is a spectacular sounding induction coil EQ that has been formatted for the 500-series format. Designed to accentuate the character of a voice or instrument without introducing the artifacts and phase anomalies commonly associated with typical gyrator (resistor-capacitor) equalizer circuits.

The Q3 has four easy to use controls: top-end boost, mid-range cut, low frequency bass boost and gain make-up to offset the signal loss that occurs when using passive equalization. Each of the three EQ bands employs a 12 position Grayhill switch with a different preset curve at each position. These are carefully crafted to introduce subtle accents, huge hype and warm sounding cuts that will flatter and enthral. Each EQ setting is augmented with a miniature toggle switch that enables you to attenuate the curve for more subtle effects to deliver over 10,000 combinations of tonal bliss. And because presets are employed, it's easy to recreate favorite patches by setting the dials with easy to remember 3-number combinations.

The Radial Q3 is plug-and-play easy to use. For use with a balanced line level signal.

Using the Q3 on an instrument

Adding extra spark to an acoustic or more punch to a bass are the hallmarks of great sounding, memorable recordings. The Q3's preset curves make it easy to find and recreate magical 'signature' curves. Just dial in your favourite 3-11-4 combination and presto... instant you. The Radial Q3 induction coil EQ... probably the most exciting equalizer ever made.
