Best on drums and vocals. More surgical than its little brother the Neve 1073 _
This EQ is another great one to own. Mainly because the hardware its based on is legendary! Knowing it's been used all over the place tells you that Neve sound is all over the place too! Having the ability to put some of that sound in my own work is great when I need it!
NeveÂ® 1081's hight shelf band is so cool
but this suit is so heavey ...
I love the low bands but not high .very good to boos and shape drums and percussive instruments.
Great for bass and guitar tones. I don't use it as much as the 1073 however.
