I used to play a Mesa Boogie Studio 22 and it had a footswitchable 5-band EQ. I'd put a "smile" curve on it, cutting out some of the mids for my main rhythm tone. For solos, I'd shut it off, which resulted in a nice subtle mid-boost (and slight volume increase) which let the solos cut through nicely. So it was on for rhythm, off for solos.
I've heard good things about these.
I like the amp! But it cost $1000 and the pedal was $55 and I can use it with other amps/guitars differently.
Lots of good ideas in this thread as well. I resisted for a while but in 10 minutes it made me a believer.
Now I need as remote volume pedal for my harp player so I can work it.
I've really been enjoying this Christmas gift...
I'd like to see this kind of EQ amp in guitar form paired with a modeling pre-amp (like the Strymon Iridium or Origin Effects Revival Drive), IR loading and a FRFR speaker.
That's how I've been using my MXR EQ pedal - on for rhythm, with a modest mids/bass cut, so a / shape to the sliders, off for soloing / boosted. I also like the "frowny face boost for solo" method too. Next experiment is to set the amp perfectly for me tele and hollowbody and use the EQ pedal for the strat which I always find thin and pingy in comparison.
Another reply to "get the right amp" is "get the right wife"
You married her because you love her. Doesn't mean she's always perfect and you'd never change a thing.
Just saw this Biyang pedal randomly while browsing for a GE-7.
Isn't the correct term "TONE FANCIFIER"?
eq gives you access
to more sounds
I have a GE-7 and love it. Though I don't use it on my current pedalboard, to me it is the "Swiss Army knife" of tone. For example, put one after your favorite fuzz and play with the mids. Or just drop the lower frequencies to get rid of muddiness. Lots of options. And you can use it as a clean boost in a pinch.
Where is it supposed to go in the chain? I thought I would put it right after my compressor, but a lot of examples show it goes after the pedals as a boost?
It really is a great eq the only problem is you have to spend a lot of time with it and it’s less intuitive than the ones with sliders
I heard they discontinued them because most people couldn’t figure them out
Whenever I used those Boogies with parametric EQs, I found I wanted to get rid them because boosting and cutting with it just messed up the tone. Always left them flat in the end
Wherever it sounds best. Mine is after compressor before solo overdrive. It’s only on if I am shaping the EQ or boosting dB slightly for weak vintage single coils when using multiple guitars.
With my new Caline, I've experimented with it first, after overdrives/fuzz, last, in the effects loop and even in the mixing board loop. I've ended up with it at the start of my chain which is where I had an old boost/EQ pedal that stopped working well. I mainly want to tweak the tone of the guitar I'm playing at the time instead of modifying the overall tone of the chain. I currently have it before compressor but I may switch that around to see how that works.
Gotcha. Essentially I can add it where I want depending on what I want to achieve. Thanks!
I picked up a used Empress EQ and my Deluxe Reverb benefits from it with some of the mids dialed out. "Honky" is the exact term I would use. It's also nice having the -6db cut for going from a single-coil guitar to a humbucker guitar without changing the level of saturation much.
I've been very impressed with this one...
What is this?!
An EQ pedal for ANTS!?!
It would have to have at least 3 times more knobs and switches!!!
