My Audio Lab - PEQ-1 Passive Tube EQ DIY kit

The PEQ-1 is a Passive tube eq kit based on the Pultec eq series. From the video you can see and hear how easy it is to dial in the frequencies you need for a variety of sounds.

"Just like the original Pultec, the PEQ-1 offers the following controls: Low Boost , Low Cut, Low Frequency, High Frequency, Bandwidth, Hi Boost, Hi Cut Shelf."
The available frequencies are:
Low Freq: 20Hz, 30Hz, 45Hz, 60Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz
High Freq: 2kHz, 3kHz, 4kHz, 7 kHz, 13kHz, 18kHz
Shelf (Hi-cut Freq): 5 kHz, 7 kHz, 9kHz, 12kHz, 14kHz, 28kHz

Cost: $422.88 at My Audio Lab's website. The website is in French so here's the Google Translated version

The PEQ-1 is similiar to another DIY kit by Gyraf named the G-Pultec.
