Craig, I am a huge fan of all of your products. I am using the Iso-Q on a new artist Heather Jakeman in Studio B, its where I like to mix.

I like it a lot, it`s a Wonderful box!!! The Iso-Q has a Very broadband, like a Pultec.

I can also make the Iso-Q2 available to Rolff at Rentals.

I really like the S2 amplifier also.
