    Tried the MXR 6-band and it was a hiss fest no matter how rigged and set. So any preferences among/comparisons between these relative inexpensive EQ's?

    Thanks.

    I just gave my Fish 'n chips to my Step daughter and I have the MXR 6 Band. At one time I had both on my main board. Both are great. Never a hiss from my well used, very old 6 Band. The F'nCs is not true bypass and I have always been very careful with it, but the boost is great. The MXR slides light up and the graphics glow in the dark and built like a tank, which is great onstage. I've learned that there is an advantage to a parametric EQ, so I might get one, but I can't imagine not having the MXR.

    Wow, the MXR is the one I would get if I wanted one....

    The Dano is ok, the problem is the Dano buffer isn't great, you lose a touch of high end when running through it, but since it's an EQ, I guess you could EQ around that lol.

    Thanks for today's lunch idea...there's a great, little fish & chip shack at our Fisherman's Warf, less than a half hour walk, away. While I prefer halibut, the 2 piece grilled salmon & chips is my typical buy. Their fish tacos are tastey, too. 79716.jpg Granville Island's a fun, touristy, diversion, right in the neighborhood.

    I had exactly the same experience as the OP, the 6 band mxr was very hissy and unpleasant. The Boss GE-7 works well but for the few times that I actually need an EQ I go to the Dano Fish & Chips every time, it's very quiet and I've not noticed any loss of audio quality with it. If they would only put it in a sensible box it would be perfect.

    Look at Biyang 7 band also. Seems pretty well built and quiet. Slightly bigger with longer throws on sliders so easier to adjust.
