must-have stompthis little box is awesome. I ran my guitar into it and then my floor processor, and it gave me a warmth and resonance I'd never heard before after just a couple minutes of playing with frequencies. it immediately added a smooth, natural air before I even boosted or cut anything. today was the first time I'd used it, and it's staying in my rig.

Looks ordinary but sounds extraordinary.I bought it quite sometime ago when I was trying to enhance the sound of my guitar and amplifier altogether. Though my friends told me to replace the pickups and speaker of my both instruments but the idea was quite expensive. So I happened to hire this unit from one of my friends and I got really shocked to hear its stupendous and dynamic sound quality. It really made my sound so well that I just started wondering to myself that how I was missing such a nice pedal for so long. I immediately purchased it on the very next day. It is a wonderful pedal for shaping or boosting up the sound of your guitar to any level. Whether you are playing hard rock, metal or crystal clear you will get your sound with extra points right there just a pedal away. I have tried it both on my humbucking and single coil pickup guitars and it makes each of them sound so well and every note of your guitar becomes alive and refreshed to an ultimate level. Though this pedal seems very simple and ordinary by its name but once you hear it you will say spontaneously that "Hearing is believing". The pedal is very quiet indeed with very smooth sliders. One of my pedal sliders knob came off so that requires a little bit more stronger glue. In the end I must add that one should never misjudge this simple pedal, take my words for guarantee it won't disappoint you NOT & NEVER at all. Thanks & regards.

The Great Equalizer!The Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer offers seven bands of equalization in a compact, durable, package featuring low noise operation and a silent switching system.
The seven bands of available EQ are optimized for guitar and offer up to 15db of cut/boost in the following bands; 100hz, 200hz, 400hz, 800hz, 1.6khz, 3.2khz, and 6.4khz. There is also a level control that can be used to cut, boost, or equalize the effected signal with the unaffected signal.
I have used it to fatten and boost my leads, “scoop” the mids/boost the highs and lows for Modern Metal, tighten up a flabby clean sound for cutting through a mix, and to find and minimize feedback producing frequencies.
Placing the GE-7 before an overdrive or distortion pedal allows you to actually shape and change the overall character of your overdrive/distortion. Placing the GE-7 after your overdrive/distortion pedal allows you to accentuate or cut specific frequencies to add color to your sound without radically altering the basic character of your overdrive.
For the ultimate in tonal versatility, try using two GE-7’s. Place the first in front of your OD/dist pedal. Set it to cut the bass going into the distortion pedal by about 9 db, because excessive bass frequencies pre-distortion results in a muddy or flabby sound. Also, boost the pre-distortion mids at 800hz for a crunchy, biting attack. Next, place a second GE-7 after the distortion unit. Set it to bring the bass back up or even boost it a bit (try about 12 db of boost). Also add in some highs. This set-up works great to produce an absolutely crushing crunchy overdrive or 80’s style Metal sound.

Very nice EQDoes a great job. It adds a little noise (as do most EQ's). I still prefer the Parametric EQ.
