    NPD - Compressor edition and an EQ pedal question

    Picked up a TC Electronic HyperGravity Mini Pedal.
    Really like it clean and was quite surprised how good it sounded with dirt and full blown Distortion. I was thinking that I would only use it with cleans but I may be an "on most of the time" pedal.

    Have not messed with any tone prints yet but there have a ton available and the editor looks pretty interesting.

    Now my EQ question.
    I would like an EQ pedal. I would prefer something with a smaller footprint, but am wondering if any of the mini EQ pedals offer a wide enough range on the sliders or are super fussy to adjust.

    Basically I want something that can brighten up my clean tone a bit. My Orange doesn't have any adjustable eq for the clean channel and I would like something that could squeeze (HAHA ORANGE) a few different sounds out of it.

    Interesting it doesn't mess with distorted sounds, that's certainly a plus. I used to use some compression on lead sounds back in the day but got away from it when I started using less gain. Now I just want some for clean stuff.

    As for an EQ pedal, I've got no experience with anything outside of the Boss GE-7, which I loved and got a TON of use out of. Actually, I have zero clue what happened to that pedal now that I think about it. I know there are a lot of options out there, but I'd have no problem buying one again, especially since Monte Allums has a mod kit for it to get it working quieter.

    My MXR 10-band will probably never leave my pedalboard. They have a smaller, more compact 6-band one?

    Yeah I don't want to bother with anything noisey. The comp on dirt gives it just a touch more oomph.. I am not squashing things too much just enough for a bit of sustain.


    Leon thanks I was thinking just get the 10 band but wasn't sure how good the 6 band is.

    I am about done for pedals sans eq (for now...) So remaining space may not be an issue.

    I can't speak to how well the 6-band works, but I love the 10-band. I love crispy gain, so I'm really using it to tame the highs so I'm not ice-picking my listeners, or myself
