More 70 Series Vibe from Drawmer! TransAudio Group Introduces 1971 4-Band Parametric EQ

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: Given the unprecedented reputation of delivering creative, problem-solving, and bulletproof products to the studio recording arena, TransAudio Group, the U.S. Distributor for Drawmer, is introducing the all new Drawmer 1971 4-Band Parametric EQ. This new edition to the Drawmer 70s series of FET-based gear offers two channels of fully featured 4-band parametric EQ and a new CRUSH button with the ability to deliver a myriad of unique musical applications on each bandwidth.

Additionally, variable low-cut & high-cut filters perfectly tune out any unwanted signals, while switchable slopes on the low and high bands allow you to alter the focus at the top and bottom frequencies, plus a low peak setting that magnifies the bottom end.

All four bands have fully variable frequency controls and offer cut and boost of +/-12dB’s. Additionally, the two mid bands have completely variable filter bandwidth controls, enabling the user to focus on very narrow sections of the audio spectrum, or apply a broad natural sounding filter, and anything in between. This makes the 1971 incredibly versatile and capable of modifying everything from subtly fine-tuning mixes to tone sculpting problematic recordings.

But what really sets the 1971 apart from other parametric EQs is the CRUSH button. It adds a fixed time constant, auto gain makeup compressor, while also giving a wider rounder bandwidth, and introduces some musically pleasing harmonics and saturation.

Available as a switchable option on all four bands, it can fatten up drums, the bass guitar, and other elements of the rhythm section in the bottom end. In the mid frequencies it will help to warm the mix and enhance the presence, thickening guitars and adding punch to percussion, and at the high frequencies it will bring out the shimmer of cymbals and brighten string instruments.

With the CRUSH feature engaged, the boost control can be used to enhance the harmonic distortion. The effect is progressive, so as more boost is added to the band the CRUSH effect is more apparent.

Indented & accurate potentiometers provide greater precision with fast and simple recall. The 1971 is perfect for tonal shaping, staying true to the sound of the 70s, and ideal for any recording engineer or musician.

Noted Brad Lunde, president and founder of TransAudio Group, “Widely popular, the Drawmer 70’s series has received many industry awards, and this new EQ is sure to follow. The features embodied in the 1971, plus the amazing new CRUSH button, allow for fine-tuned tactile tone sculpting. CRUSH is a dramatic tool. Engineers and producers will love the diverse and subtle creative options. Drawmer gear is designed and handmade by Drawmer in the UK – no small feat for a pro audio manufacturer.”
