    Boss is created some of the best and most highly used effects pedals in the industry. Is successfully taking a huge chunk of the market because of creating such user friendly and very versatile extremely budget friendly petals. This pedal is no exception to that norm. The Boss PQ – 3D base parametric equalizer is a great little pedal for any bass players looking to tailor their frequencies in their overall bass tone to exactly what they're looking for. You have a basic three band parametric equalizer that consists of low, middle, and the high frequency control knob. Each band allows you to set the frequency and an level based upon your specific guitar needs. You also have a level control word volume control which which allows you to boost or you can cut out a lot of the volume within this panel. The level control is placed actually before all of the filters so we can be used to correct some of the effects and the straight sounds of this paddle.

    SOUND QUALITY

    There's not really much of a tone in this pedal it is more just shaping your overall EQ properly. Many base amplifiers consists of a basic EQ section and they're pretty much voiced to the builders and manufacture specs. So when you change guitars or have different effect next petals or overdrive petals this can change your overall EQ of your bass rig. This pedal basically allows you to modify your bass frequencies little bit better depending on which gear you have in conjunction with your bass amp fire. This is a great paddle for some someone is looking to define their tone a little bit better and fine tune their overall feeling and based home.

    OVERALL OPINION

    These pedals will work with any guitar or any amplifier that you have. They will tailor your frequencies a lot better and give the bass guitarist a lot more range of fine tuning. Again there will fit with any amplifier any guitar you have so they are a great paddle for just about any application.

    These pedals were sold until 1995 so the use market is the only way to go at this point. They're good pedal but today many other petals I would choose over this one at this point. Is a great eat equalizer pedal but there are a lot of other petals out there that do the exact same thing and probably do a lot better and come true bypass which this pedal is not a true bypass pedal. See you will feel and hear some of the loss of tone in your guitar rig so there's many other pedals choose from over this one. I would only recommend this panel if you get this pedal for under $30 or so but anything more than that I would check out some of the newer pedals that boss makes and even some of other manufactures of effects and parametric EQ pedals.

    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    3-band parametric EQ. The three bands have a variable frequency.
    3-band cover a range of 25 to 16kHz so you are not limited to the bass.
    cut / boost + / - 18db (so 3 more than the GE7B) in addition to the bands overlap.

    UTILIZATION

    By insertion into the effects loop of an amplifier that can correct a certain weakness can of it.
    By using pedal to switch from one sound to another on time (slap, dub etc).

    With the guitar, insertion into the effects loop, it provides a big beefy sound with any amp (a good move by cutting in the media).

    in short: it's great practice, it helps out much the same way that GE7B but the parametric side is more convenient I think.

    SOUND QUALITY

    As boss, no crippling but there are better.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Super convenient to troubleshoot on bass or guitar when you play not the amp.
    Or to change the sound to the guitar (after or before an overdrive).
    I always bring in my bag just in case.
    I found it secondhand 250F (yes, my good lady franc) pfou ago ... eight years. I have not used very often but each time he helped out me well this EQ. So it's a good investment along with a chart that said, but with greater flexibility.
