wowThis pedal has more personality and flexibility than any thing else on my board. It can boost your sound, or change your sound and the response of each band is very sensitive. I could see having two of these and probably will soon.

Works as intendedThis very sturdy metal pedal works well as intended. It is very useful in adjusting the volume of individual strings on your guitar. If you want more volume from your base strings, or vice versa, it can easily be done with this pedal. I most often use it for volume control when switching from rythym to lead, but it makes most guitars sound better, even when you have the switches set on zero across the strings which does not raise or lower the volume of your guitar.

MXR M-109The MXR M-109 is a good pair to my new Randall RT100H. To my ears, the amp is lacking lows and highs if using certain speaker cabs. So adding this EQ made a huge difference. It's also a must if you need a boost playing clean channel.

Sweet pedalThe mxr 6band eq is a very helpful pedal. If your looking to add more control. To your high-mid-low range. I tinker alot with my sound and it really helped me dail in the crunch I like with the style of music I play. I give credit to mxr because they make awesome pedals.

Big Sound--Small Size!!!I recently put together a pedalboard mostly to get them out of my gig bag and by the way, PedalTrain is the only way to go!!! After mounting my Dunlop Wah, Keeley Comp, Boss Blues Driver Chorus and Delay I realized that an EQ would be the finishing touch! After reading reviews on everything under the sun and demoing several it was clear the MXR 6 band would do the trick. The bands are designed specifically for electric guitar, although I've heard it works well on acoustics also! The 800 band is like a presence on roids so remember just a small adjustment goes a long way. It's also got a small footprint that helps on board placement but has no volume or gain slider. Based on where you start and stop in relation to the center detent you can set it for a boost or just a tone adjustment. Tends to be a little noisey but not a deal breaker! Thats the only reason for a less than perfect rating. The best noise gate is to just start playing, RIGHT? I highly recommend it! Oh, by the way, when you engage it with the footswitch all six sliders light up and can be easily seen in light or dark areas! I love LED's--Bob
