The Hendyamps Michelangelo is a discrete, Class A, all-tube, full stereo equaliser that epitomizes the pinnacle of analogue audio enhancement for the discerning professional. This meticulously designed unit stands apart in audio processing, offering a broad spectrum of tonal possibilities that transcend the conventional boundaries of frequency manipulation.

Unparalleled Design and Functionality

Crafted with the utmost precision, the Michelangelo boasts a three to four-band configuration, empowered by Class A circuitry and enriched with Jensen transformers. Its distinctiveness is further accentuated by a large transformer protruding from the rear panel, underscoring its robust engineering and sonic fidelity. The front panel eschews traditional frequency and bandwidth markings for an intuitive set of controls, including a 'Low Shift 80Hz-150Hz' selector and six chicken-head rotary knobs (Aggression, Low, Mid, High, Air, and Trim) that invite a tactile and auditory-driven interaction.

A Philosophy of Sonic Exploration

The Michelangelo encourages audio professionals to engage deeply with their material, prioritising auditory judgement over visual metrics. This philosophy manifests through innovative features such as 'Shift' settings for nuanced band response adjustments and an 'Aggression' control for dialling in valve saturation with precision. A 'Vintage' switch offers the option to infuse tracks with a darker tonality while comprehensive bypass, trim, and calibration controls ensure meticulous signal integrity and harmonic content enhancement.

Designed for the Discerning Ear

The unique operational approach of Michelangelo, emphasising exploratory sound shaping over fixed parameters, caters to professionals who value sonic character and dynamic interaction within their mastering chain. Its ability to seamlessly integrate and enhance various musical genres highlights its versatility and unmatched quality in the audio engineering landscape.
