The Manley Massive Passive Stereo Tube EQ is a two-channel, four-band equalizer (with additional high pass and low pass filters) that can handle radical EQ sometimes needed for tracking as well as the most subtle shadings for vocals and mastering. It is designed to be a fundamentally different EQ but incorporates the best strengths of Pultecs, choice console EQs, parametrics and graphics. The difference is that the Massive allows twice as much EQ with half the coloration. It delivers huge HF boosts without sibilance problems and extreme fatness with impressive clarity.
