  1. Hi recently I aquired, at the right price (free) a box known as a UREI model 562 feedback supressor. Looks like a 5 band parametric eq to me.Anyone out there have any familiarity with this piece? Any info greatly appreciated.

    The one with the big dials?
    Michael Wagner use to have one or two of those in his rack(s).
    Really cool on e-gtrs if I remember correctly.
     
  3. Its got 5 "double dials" across the front (outside knob is for freq.- inside for depth- with a little switch by each one thats labeled "x10" to the right of that is a low cut and high cut knob. The input and output on the back are XLR. Right now I'm using a Mackie 1604 VLZ as my board. I've also got an HHB Fatman tube pre/compressor. How would I go about integrating this piece into my rig? Thanks!

    The 562 is a tool for live/install guys to put on the monitor mixes as far as I'm concerned. It consists of five 1/6 octave cut only filters with sweepable freq. and depth (Does that make them quasi-parametric?). The setup switch kicks a diode limiter into the system so you can induce feedback and not have it blow up speakers.

    I use one for notching objectionable things out when I need a really narrow cut that I can make really deep. If you stack all the filters on top of each other, the width gets kinda funky, but the depth is huge ;-)

    It's not a recording tool per se, but it'll do when you need narrow notches of cut.
