The EQ-351 is a winner unless used wrong.

After adjusting this equalizer carefully, it appears to perform well. The constant-Q design insures that the response is predictable. A word of advice is this: do not think that you can do without a preamp by just plugging a mic into it and then cranking up the level control. The unit is designed to work with a preamp in front of it. If you just plug in a mic then you're asking for hiss. A preamp is essential. In general, line level into the equalizer is what is required.

Great value for dollar. Good construction. Not as quiet as some of the high-end analog EQs of yore, but very reasonable for dollars paid. Nice to have several I/O connector options, and sweepable high/low pass.

Compressor Sidechain EQ

I needed a cheap EQ for the sidechain input of a compressor. I use it to pull the kick drum out of drum loops and do very subtle ducking of bass/synth tracks. It's the simplest thing, but it turns a drum part and a bass part into a groove. It has a bypass button, handy high/low pass filters, and an output level knob. It's affordable and has all the features I needed. Having the RCA outputs made it easy for me to listen to the EQ'd sound to make adjustments. The tape input on my mixer was just about the only input left, so I appreciated the RCA jacks. I haven't used it for any other purpose, so I can't vouch for the sound quality. I probably wouldn't use it for anything else, but that's mostly because I prefer parametric EQ's.

Nice EQ if you know what you're doing.

As with any piece of equipment this EQ is only as good as the knowledge of the person using it. I bought mine used from eBay because I needed an EQ for my guitar rack. I liked this one because of the filters so I bought it. With a little tweaking it sounds pretty dang good. At first it was making a hiss which went away when I hit the bypass button, but I was having a brain fart when I put it in my rack and put it ahead of the preamp. D'oh! Switched it around and no more hiss. The detents are positive and its built pretty well. maybe it would be a little easier to see if the faders were lit, but its not anbig deal. I have a modest guitar rig consisting of a Behringer Vampire head and a Bugera 4x10 slant, but the tone wasn't quite right, especially at high volume, so I expanded. I added a Behringer Composer MDX-2200, a BBE 402 sonic maximizer, a Peavey Ultraverb, and this EQ (and of course a power conditioner) and now I have the sound I have been looking for. Nice unit for the price if used wisely. As for negatives, I don't know about customer support, haven't used them yet. Minor cosmetic issue, the outputs on the back didn't originally line up within the reach of a 6" patch cable. Not a big deal though, just thought I would mention it since all of my outputs are on one side except this one. I can't think of any more negatives about it.
