Tegeler Audio Manufaktur Now Shipping Products To the U.S.

A Berlin-based company called Tegeler Audio Manufaktur is now marketing its products in the U.S. and offering a 14-day “try-before-you-buy” program to attract new customers. The company is renown in Europe for its high-quality, hand-made professional audio recording, mixing, and mastering gear.

One of Tegeler's most popular products is the Crème, a passive EQ based on the Pultec principle and a high-end bus compressor in a single device, which retails for $1,799.00.

“Many successful mixing engineers mix with a compressor and EQ in the master channel to get an idea of how the mix will sound in mastering,” said Michael Krusch, founder and Head of Development of Tegeler. “The Crème puts the very best of both in one device and helps in finding the right volume balance for individual sounds, especially the vocals.”

For the EQ part, Tegeler Audio Manufaktur took the filter circuitry from its existing Pultec and completely updated it. Unnecessary controls have been replaced by fixed values and irrelevant frequencies have been removed from the mix bus. This passive EQ is focused on the most popular applications: A bass boost that gives the mix a solid foundation and thrust, and treble boost that gives the mix that signature shine.

All of the controls on the Crème are rotary switches for greater precision and limiting the range of settings has made adjustments much more precise. This gives the Crème its accurate stereo tracking features.

The Crème's powerful VCA compressor is very harmonic in nature, keeping the sound transparent and allowing individual instruments to find their place in the mix. It can be pushed hard, giving the mix a noticeably more open and brilliant sound without any loss of high end. The company said that the Crème's compressor helps define and unify the bass and refine it with subtle dynamics. The switchable high-pass filter in the side chain ensures that, when required, even heavy bass doesn't lead to pumping.

Tegeler Audio Manufaktur also offers the Vari Tube Recording Channel, the Classic Equalizer EQP-1, the Vari Tube Compressor, the analog mastering matrix Konnektor, and soon to be released: the Schwerkraftmaschine, the ultimate compressor. As part of its new Try-Before-You-Buy Program, audio professionals can have a unit shipped directly to their studio to evaluate for 14 days free of charge.
