Induction Coil EQ

The Q3 is a spectacular sounding induction coil EQ designed to accentuate the character of any voice or instrument, with unique EQ presets that can be used in thousands of different combinations.


  • Induction coil EQ with unique preset curves at each setting
  • A stunning combination of over 10,000 tonal variations
  • Color your sound with warmth and detail
  • Compatible with all standard 500 series racks

Explore endless tonal options

The Q3 features 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 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 a total of over 10,000 combinations of tonal bliss.
