It’s that time of the year when you’re glad you have tube gear, not just for the sound but because it heats your studio; snow falls gently outside your window (or if you’re in Iceland, maybe it’s volcanic ash . . . but the look is the same); and the malls are filled with humanoid bipeds reaffirming their faith by consuming as much as their credit cards will allow. In other words, it’s the holidays, and it’s time to do something nice for your loved ones—or yourself.
EQ looked for recent gear goodies that would delight the recipient, while given today’s tough economic times, indebt the giver as minimally as possible. It turned out there were far more options than we could fit in the pages of this magazine, making the choice that much more difficult. But we feel that the following all represent really excellent value, and would be something that any of us would certainly be happy to see under the Christmas tree, Hannukah bush, or just sitting next to a high-octane eggnog.
So enjoy, and happy holidays from all of us at EQ!
