Dial in your tone
Tried many boost pedals, finding most of them adding too much high end, and very little if not no, tone adjustment. Here, I get some boost, and 7 bands of flexibility over my tone, which is a bit bright for my taste and style. The controls are very sensitive so you can get a lot of change with very little adjustment. Stumbled over a lot of pedals before getting this, and it has replaced many of them, freeing up some board space, but also some cash, for other pedals, and a bad case of GAS.

I'm not an overly big fan of EQ in a pedal but....
I really don't like the Boss GE7. Unless you're just going to use it very subtley its just way to noisy. I know a lot of guys use these as a treble or mid boost for solos and stuff but I swear there are better ways to do that folks. Much better. The GE7 is hissy and it has just enough bands to elt you screw up your tone if you don't know what you're doing. I'll be honest I am not a big fan of graphic EQ for gutar, even during mix-down. Pretty much graphic EQs are for notching out feedback on floor wedges... as far as ones with limited bands like this? they mostly sound bad to me apart from the classic API 560. There are some other ones out there that aren't bad, but none of them come in a pedal. Boss made a half-rack unit in the 80s that anyone thinking of using a GE7 should go investigate! Frannkly, for my purposes I found the Ibanez 3 band EQs with the semi parametric midrange to be a lot more useful. They're the only pedal EQ I ever liked... even then, quite noisy.
Should be on everyone's pedalboard
EQ's are one of the most important, and probably one of the most overlooked pieces of a rig. This pedal probably isn't the best one, but it's definitely good enough for what I use it for, and it's built like a tank. Truly helps to hone in on certain frequencies of your sound and really help bring your tone to life.
From Gear Setup:
best EQ ever
my EQ used for my Bass and Guitar, but for guitar mostly
