Congrats!

Designed by Hutch when he was still with Manley.

In 2005 Bob Ludwig told me that the MassPass was his favorite EQ.

Enjoy.

Thanks Jerry, the guy obviously had deep skills to produce this EQ, it's details like that MANLEY making virtually every inductor/transformer for this unit themselves.

All the positive vibes for the MP, I've been thinking about adding Langevin Mini-Massive.  Anyone here running one care to comment on how you're getting along with it?

Hiya I was considering it myself but in the end it had to be the MP or nothing, the difference in price this side of the water makes it worthwhile. I think the overall euphonic pass through character of this unit with the valve amplifier stage and transformers is an added bonus.

They had a really excellent price in the USA on the mini recently on ebay, brand new ones for around 1.600.00 but the import duty + VAT in the UK is a bit of a killer but if you are in the USA then they are quite decent value.

Great acquisition, my friend!
I can't see this EQ leaving you, anytime soon..

Before this, did you ever use the UAD versions, and if YES, then, what are your thoughts now, on the difference etc..
Cause that’s where, I’ll start and if lucky, move onto the real deal.

Good luck mate!
Hopefully, we’ll have our last WUMP, before the year is out and get a chance to listen to your approach on the MP etc.

Was working on a song today when I discovered the magic (for this song) that was the 560Hz hi-shelf (yeah! all the way down there), bandwidth @ 0. What an incredible sounding tilt that can be for upper mids and highs. It even gently massages the lower mids. Never heard anything like that.

never gone give my mp up, never gone let it down, never gonna run around and desert my mp.

I was just poking around on the Manley site and it appears the Minni-Massive is out of production. I wonder if the Dangerous Bax took it's thunder or if there's something new in the pipeline, etc.

I've always been interested in the mini as well, but have never had my hands on one.

Thanks for all the kind words, guys.

We have stopped the LANGEVIN brand completely. A few products have found their way into Manley-land. There is a limited run of Manley Mini Massive EQs available right now in our export markets.

Interesting news on the Langevin badge.  I'm glad to see the Mini and some others have been rebranded, at least.  Feel free to share any news here on the changes to the lines.
