This oldie offers a range of cut/boost of 18 dB –Boss GE-7 offers just 15, and MXR Ten Band EQ offers just 12. The 15 dB range is enough (or even more than that!) for most of us, but then this unit got its advantage not by this quantifiable fact but for a matter of quality by offering a very quiet response that puts the usual –and usually more expensive– "let's grab the Boss one 'cos I know that brand" choice into shame while doesn't even need an awkward 18V supply like the MXR 10 Band EQ to achieve it.
