+2 for the old style analog radio shack spl meter.
The older style has a little increased response in the 2KHz to 10KHz range and rolls off fairly
steeply in the last octave (10K-20K).
The newer style analog meter has a bit more peak in 3K-8K and even more roll off above 10K
than the older ones.
The new digital style has a big peak in response from 4K to 10K, but is more accurate from 10K-20K,
and also has a lot more roll off in bass frequencies in the bottom two octaves than the analog ones.
Here's a link to a review of the older and newer analog meters and the newer digital one.
It will give you a good idea of the accuracy of the meters relative to frequency in particular.

Music doesn't lie. If there is something to be changed in this world, then it can only happen through music.
