The Behringer Graphic Equalizer EQ700 is a simple seven band equalizer pedal that is designed for use with electric guitar. This pedal is much like the Boss 7 band EQ pedal, and knowing that Behringer reverse engineers their products, I wouldn't be surprised if they straight up copied it. The pedal has a standard make up in terms of it's general characteristics, with 1/4" jacks for input and output and requiring power from either a nine volt battery or power supply. It's not rack mountable as it's a foot pedal.


It's not at all hard to use the Behringer Graphic Equalizer EQ700. It's just a seven band EQ, with each slider having it's own frequency. There doesn't seem to be any sort of real chosen reason for these frequencies other than each slider is double the frequency of the slider before it. The range goes from 100 Hz to 6.4 kHz, and also features an overall output level slider as well. It's so easy to use that no one should need a manual.


Honestly, I really think that the Behringer Graphic Equalizer EQ700 does more harm than it helps. It definitely seems to kill your tone a little bit in terms of signal loss, which is enough of a problem not to make the pedal worthwhile in my opinion. The EQ definitely will do it's job in terms of cutting or boosting at given frequencies, but I wouldn't say that it's too clean sounding. It will do an okay job for adding a bit of color here and there, but a simple tone knob could probably do as good of a job without killing any signal...


Never in a million years would I have the Behringer Graphic Equalizer EQ700 in my guitar rig! I understand that it's a cheap pedal and all that, but first off I'm not really sure why you would want a graphic EQ in your pedal line to begin with, let alone one of this low a quality. I'd highly recommend starting with the tone knobs on your guitar and amp before searching for a graphic EQ pedal. If you do decide you want further and more precise EQ control for your guitar, I'd stay away from the Behringer EQ700...
