Lowdown Records LLC  is my Record Company. I am passionate about my music, vintage instruments, and my analog recording gear as well. I was going to DIY Pultec Eq’s by sourcing the components as close as possible to the original but when I found these builds I took a chance and have no regrets.


Which brings me to Magnetec.

The devices this Russian company hand builds are like going back to the 1950's with every detail in quality and construction. These are incredible units.

After being a satisfied customer for over 10 years I wanted to help the folks at Magnetec.

I have become their manufacturers dealer for North America.


from their website: 

“Why do we all fancy vintage stuff? How come it's so heartwarming? Perhaps because being hand-made, it preserves the warmth of human hands. 

We at Magnetone Techniques are true old tech connoisseurs , implementing it in all our devices. All of them are small batch, hand-made, with careful precision and an eye for detail."
