So, I picked up a MXR 10-band EQ, to test emulating the style of equalization in my DC-10 in my Stiletto. So far, I think I've come close to duplicating the tone I get from the "V" on the GEQ to the EQ, only spending about 15 minutes tweaking. Although I'm sure the nuances of whatever I'm hearing won't come through, I'll try to make a video of it tomorrow-ish.
Then I'll drop it into the Stiletto, and we'll see what happens!
I use (and have used) a graphic EQ in my rig. For years. I approve.
