    A reverse linear pot would be......a linear pot!. I think you mean reverse audio.

    The TC Spark Booster is a versatile enough EQ (and not as complicated as a graphic EQ), that it could also do this job... put the switch in mids position, drop the treble a bit, raise the bass a bit... that'd do it. (I also have a Spark Booster, but I use it for solo -volume- boost in the amp's effects loop)

    A parametric should really do it well, since you should be able to nail the resonant peak, and boost or cut the appropriate frequencies with precision.

    The big disadvantage to a parametric EQ is that it's typically not very easy to dial in. But once you get the hang of it, you'll probably never go back to using a graphic EQ (at least for guitar) ever again.

    I use the Trimode (two-channel version of the Classic) and can confirm the magic of the EQ section. Feature-laden, versatile, easy-to-use.

    That's the magic of TDPRI. The best answers come 13 year after the fact. I assume it was entirely worth the wait.

    I had one of these for a while. It was an interesting, unique pedal for a while...then I realized I just didn't need it. Pretty cool though and definitely a guitarists conversation piece.

    Those are great pedals. I had the Classic but let it go...duh. I wonder how the new v9 stacks up to the original?

    4 way Tele switch? Position 4 is in the ballpark.

    the clean boost on the behringer copy of the old boss hyper fuzz does a pretty good job at this.
