Description

This Moog EQ is being refurbished. Photos and updated details to follow. Email for details


The equaliser has been recapped using premium-quality Panasonic capacitors and the power supply rebuilt with larger smoothing capacitors. Caps in the audio path have been replaced with higher-value bipolar caps to improve audio quality.

The in / out switch uses a CMOS electronic switch to switch audio and has been bypassed to improve audio quality. The bypass is a simple wire link and the EQ can easily be returned to standard, or a relay bypass fitted, in the future

Pots & switches have been cleaned & lubricated and the unit is tested & working 100%


Part of the small range of MOOG pro-audio equipment, the MKG  is a ten-band graphic equaliser in the traditional black & white MOOG style

The ten bands are centred at 31, 63, 125, 250, 500, 1k, 2k, 4k, 8k and 16 kHz. Maximum boost & cut are 15 dB and the octave spacing makes for fairly broad EQ bands ideal for subtle sound-shaping

Like the MKPE parametric, the MKG has an unusual Drive circuit which sets the gain structure of the unit. Gain sets the overall output level but Drive sets the level in the eq section. Drive reduces the input level while increasing the output, giving no change in overall gain

Unlike third-octave graphics, which can sound tight & notchy, octave equalisers are broad enough to sound smooth when used in moderation. A big part of the appeal of the MKG, though, is that it still sounds musical and usable when pushed to the maximum. The Drive control can help here as well

“I Have one of the Moog Ten Band Graphics in my Modular synth outboard rig. I think what makes it unique is the the choice of frequencies and the spacing of each band – it just seems to have bands at just the right ranges for getting the results I want. Nice long throws on the sliders too”

This is a rare Moog graphic in really excellent condition. It’s in the workshop being recapped & refurbished and will soon be ready to go, tested & working 100%

Three-band parametric equaliser with unique "Drive" control to set gain staging. Drive doesn't change the overall gain but sets the signal level through the equaliser. Gain is a preamp / attenuator at the input stage of the EQ.

Switchable 110 / 220 VAC supply with a standard IEC socket. UK, US or Euro IEC power cable supplied on request

Standard 2U rackmount device
