DESCRIPTION

The EZQ Parametric Filter is capable of low pass, band pass or high pass performance with adjustable frequency and Q - 9 volt or 18 volt. Using the EZQ with hum-cancelling pickups provides the utmost definition for percussive (string slap) bass techniques, as well as a wide range of tonalities not achievable with standard tone controls.

The EZQ is a low noise filter that will accept input from any pickup or combination of pickups without instability or oscillation.The EZQ comes with 2 dual 50K-ohm pots for frequency and Q control. The frequency range extends from 600 Hz to 5000 Hz and the boost at maximum Q exceeds 20dB. Decreasing the Q value increases the overall gain to maintain nearly constant loudness.- 9 volt or 18 volt.

The pots included with this unit have a short threaded shaft, best for mounting to a control plate or pickguard.

Battery life is two months of continuous use.

I wanted a filter based preamp for my fretless. Standard shelving EQ's do not really work for me on fretless basses. The EZQ has a great sound and has a few different wiring options. I opted for the schematic on the last page of the instructions. What is the real bummer with this preamp is sourcing the pots and resistors/capacitors. The 2 dual 50k's that come with it will only fit on a pickguard, not a rear routed bass without modifications (routing).
