3 YEAR EXTENDED WARRANTY SCHEME

The product price includes a one year warranty and 30 day money back guarantee.

However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 3 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 60 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 3 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

API 560 Discrete 10 Band Graphic EQ

Details
The API 560 Discrete 10 Band Graphic EQ was originally developed for API consoles in the '60s and '70s. Not only does the 560 provide that classic sound and design from API you'd expect in previous units, but it also feature an improved resolution at +/ -4dB. Based on the original 1969 API 560 EQ, this updated version of the classic unit offers consistent analog performance even when using the EQ curves. The low impedance loads result in better low frequency reproduction and tighter imaging, giving you that punchy low-end response API is known for. With 10 precision EQ bands, the 560 is ideal for signal and room tuning. Classic design and quality components make this unit perfect for any sound engineer looking to expand their console unit.

Classic Re-Issue

The 560 was originally developed for use in API Consoles in the 60s and 70s. This re-issue delivers all the features which made the original a keystone in many studios but introduces an improved resolution at +/-4dB. This mixture of new and old makes this re-issue ideal for studio engineers who appreciate the vintage equalization methods but still need the punchy and unique sonic qualities that API are known for.

''Proportional Q'' Control

Saul Walker (The founder of API) designed the ''Proportional Q'' control in the '60s, allowing for the widening of the filter bandwidth at minimal settings whilst narrowing it at higher settings, without the need for additional bandwidth controls. This feature helps to minimise the phase-shift sound found in many equalizer units.

The API 500 Series

The API 500 Series focuses on high sound quality and longevity at an affordable price range. Considering most studio rigs undergo a large amount of swapping and changing between equipment, the API 500 series is designed to last, from its high quality components down to its rugged and durable design.

Features

  • 10 bands of API proprietary equalization
  • Familiar graphics operation on one octave centers
  • 12dB of boost/cut per band
  • "Proportional Q" narrows filter Q at extremes

  • Center detent for reliable reset
  • Traditional API fully discrete circuit design
  • Silent bypass button
  • Re-issue of the 1969 API 560 EQ
