The Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer EQ Pedal! A few different things can affect your tone as far as an Equalizer goes. Of course, the guitar, pickups, and amp. Heck, even your cables can decide what your base tone will sound like. Further, the pick you pick can affect your tone. When all of that is said and done, sometimes you just have to buy a pedal.
Many a time, guitarists like you and I plug into our existing pedal board and characterize our sound via our Overdrive pedals. And then there comes that dissatisfying moment when all we want is…another overdrive pedal because the one we have isn’t bass-y enough, mid-y enough, or the like.
The idea of an EQ pedal may be miles from your next purchase, but think again. Those frequencies that you are lacking are a simple slider push or pull away! With 7 sliders plus a main volume slider, you have the ability to dial in exactly what you’d like to hear out of those OD pedals you already own.
There is one rule when it comes to EQ. One always subtracts, never add.
What this means is that as the EQ of the pedal is flat, you should, in theory, only pull the sliders negating certain frequencies, do not push the sliders adding more of the frequency.
But YOU play guitar! You don’t need to listen to the rules! Use your ears and tweak away.
Three Distinct Uses
The ‘V’ – Shaping the sliders in a V shape, accentuating the Bass and Treble frequencies and negating the mids, can give you a great bluesy macgee tone.
The Flatline Boost – flatline the sliders and push up the main volume to cook your amp into juicy-town!
This pedal is noisy. The Monte Allums mod kit really quiets this beast, consider picking up the kit when buying this pedal.
Get this pedal before you try another overdrive pedal. You might just find treasure in what you already own!
