I've been thinking about adding an EQ pedal to my rig lately, but it seems there aren't many choices out there, and the price gaps between them are quite big. So far I've gathered some info about common options:
- Danelectro Fish'n Chips (~40$)
- Boss GE-7 (~70$)
- MXR 6 and 10 band (80-125$)
- Boss PQ4 (old, only available used)
- Carl Martin 3-Band EQ
As I have experience myself recording and mixing I'm more interested on the parametric ones. The Empress and the Fromel Shape are out just for the price. I can't find much information about the Boss and I'm really curious (specially since the GE-7 doesn't get much love but the PQ4 price seems to be around 125-125$ )
Of course, I haven't tried any of them so I'd appreciate some help. The idea is to leave it always on for metal rythms.
So what do you think about EQ pedals in general, and which one would you recommend?
Other options that come right to mind are:
Mesa 5 Band EQ
Source Audio Programmable EQ
All the Source Audio Soundblox Pro line Pedals
Earthquaker Devices Tone Job
Stone Deaf FX PDF-1 (Parametric)
Some discontinued and hard to find TC Electronic stuff have parametric eqs.
