7 frequency bands provide extensive tone-shaping options

The Behringer Bass Graphic Equalizer BEQ700 covers the audio spectrum from 50Hz to 10kHz. The uber-low frequencies from 50Hz to 100Hz are typically felt more than they are heard. Boosting these lower frequencies can dramatically increase your bass guitar's power and thickness, while cuts can render it weak and anemic. Gentle boosts from around 100Hz to 250Hz can give your bass warmth and body, but beware - boost too much and your tone will slip into the mud! The critical midrange between 400Hz and 1000Hz is where most of your bass's energy and impact lies, due to the human ear's sensitivity to those frequencies. Boosts in this range can help you pop out of a mix, but boost too much and your bass guitar's tone will break like glass! Just some friendly Sweetwater advice: cutting offending frequencies can oftentimes be more effective than boosting non-offending ones.

Behringer - a brief history

Uli Behringer showed an interest in music technology design at a young age, building his own synthesizer by the age of 16. In 1982, Uli began studying sound engineering and classical piano at the Robert Schumann conservatory in Dusseldorf, Germany. Uli's defining moment came when he was repairing a signal processor made by a high-end manufacturer. Despite the processor's expensive price tag, Uli realized that its internal components could be bought for a fraction of the cost. Being a strapped-for-cash student, Uli began building his own signal processors. Before he knew it, other students began requesting equipment from him. In 1989, after being bombarded with more orders than he could handle by himself, Uli created Behringer, Inc.

Great Pedal for Bass Clarity

Wanted a bit more boost and clarity for the mid frequencies, and this pedal supplies a nice improvement to tone for my P Bass through a Rumble 25 amp for home studio recordings. Nice overall boost and clarity accomplished without breaking the bank. Good pedal, great price. More than worth the $25 I paid. Why spend more for a comparable pedal that will do exactly the same good job as this? While it's shell is made of plastic, I'm a studio player and not a touring musician, so I'm not concerned with breakage. It seems sturdy enough to me. But I think even a touring musician would find this pedal pretty sturdy assuming you're not going to jump up and down on it multiple times a night or drop it from a 20 story building multiple times. Of course, any metal cased pedal could experience problems at that point. It feels durable enough for some punishment. No complaints here. Very pleased with my purchase.
