From the Street:

"I started using API EQs for their classic, natural sound. They are almost always in my chain for vocals, guitars, and drums when I record in Studio D here at Hyde Street. The 550Bs are great for their proportional Q feature. If I'm boosting or cutting by a small amount they have a nice, wide, natural sounding bandwidth, but if I want to go deep with them, they can really notch out a narrow frequency range." — Jack Kertzman
