Q3™ Specifications

The Q3 specifications shown below provide the engineer with basic data such as noise and distortion. To truly understand the 'functionality' of the device, one is better served by reviewing the various frequency curves that are shown on the using page. Or better yet... by actually listening the effect of the Q3 on voice, instruments and various program material. The Radial Q3 is not about clinical – it is about creatively applying the effect of a coil to add excitement to your music.
