    Indispensable, a must for the equalizer for live: a safe bet, perfect for a range of possibilities, or simply concoct a sound "lead" and engage it on stage in a second.

    UTILIZATION

    On stage, go to the basics and that's the case here: the settings are accessible, clear, robust. No need to be a Harvard graduate to have an immediate result. But be careful to breath, which can be witnessed an imbalance in your EQ. It is not often useful to go max of a knob: Here are some great examples with the schematics of pedals David Gilmour who put everywhere, but always in a subtle way: http://www.kitrae.net /music/David_Gilmour_Tone_Building.html

    SOUND QUALITY

    I use either output effects just before the amp or in the effects loop of it. We can give lots of different colors to his sound: add bass, high mids, remove, use it as boost for solos etc ... Personally that's what I do: I found When set to "rock power" for solos which is very suitable to my Strat US, another for my Jackson, and one for my acoustic Ovation.

    OVERALL OPINION

    A robust equalizer pedal format, perfect for a range of possibilities, or simply concoct a sound "lead" and engage over on stage in a second. it's been years that I have, maybe 20 years and it has never let me down. She is so strong that I even planted with nails once he had set racing jack into the wooden floor of a bar, no way to keep the gaffer ... One of my two totally indispensable pedals (the other is a Bad Monkey)

    very good pedal

    Boss EQ robust construction, with effective settings button. attention if the cables are still connected, the batteries discharge faster.

    UTILIZATION

    I plugged in the effects loop of my ampli.réglages with many possibilities.

    SOUND QUALITY

    very effective for digging, bigger, add mediums ...... nothing to say, this is a good pedal.
    a little breath to report anyway. Sound transparency is one of its strengths.

    OVERALL OPINION

    it's been a year since I possess, satisfied, I care. A advisor.

    7-band EQ + volume

    UTILIZATION

    yes it's easy!!

    SOUND QUALITY

    preamp lamp AoS
    amp ADA
    les paul studio "slash" / wolfgang peavey / Warmoth Stratocaster

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for qq months and nothing to say!!
    it can sculpt the sound and it's nothing to say!
    I wanted a sound to "slash" ... and just well adjusted equalizer helped me find what I was looking for! I could not believe it!
    can also be used as a boost for chorus!!

    no fault except that it would take more! I will be very tempted by the GE20!

    Analog 7-band equalizer, pouvu a volume of + / -15 dB (very handy!)
    Format Boss (12.5 x7), very robust, as usual at home!
    A IN A OUT, 8 small fader and basta!

    I bought it from Cygnus with a blue LED, which changes a little red "classic"!

    UTILIZATION

    I use it in my effects loop, first ... then directly after the preamp.
    It is useful to me in 2 ways:
    First to "improve" the EQ of the amp ... or at least a tad correct settings!
    But also to boost the volume of a part of a song (not just a solo).
    And it does it correctly!

    It can be used just after a disto to "play" on the settings of it! Personally, I use only the distortion of my amp, so ...

    SOUND QUALITY

    No coloration. This pedal is really transparent.
    It is easy to see when everything is at zero, it does not feel anything when the pedal switches. To this point, that's fine.

    Attention to the effectiveness of adjustments! This has already been said, certainly, but I confirm it by repeating it. It's really hyper sensitive ...

    In summary, large palette of sounds on this .... équalo Zique all styles will be affected by the use of it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I already try a Danelectro "Fish n 'chips", whose characteristics are identical (7 strips + level). To compare the two, the Danelectro was very good for the price (Cygnus: 25 euros FDP IN!), But it is too small and the switch is "crap" if you please
    Like it or not, Boss's still a reference for strength and quality ... no offense to his critics!
    QPR = flawless!

    Boss GE-1 Equalizer

    Boss GE-7 EqualizerPublished on 12/26/04 at 15:00
    i got this for about a hundred bucks at some music store in LA. 2years ago and havent put it down since.

    my favorite thing about this pedal is that it boosts up my metal zone. When i bought my metal zone i didnt think it had thet much distortion until i hooked it up to the ge-7 now it has twice as much distortion.

    there isnt really anything i dont like about it. the only thing is it took me a long time to get the right sound.

    all ive got to say is that its a BOSS!

    dont waste your money on a rack eq, get this and you wont be sorry. or if you want to get more punch out of your distortion pedal get this.

    Boss GE-7 EQ Pedal

    Boss GE-7 EqualizerPublished on 07/16/04 at 15:00
    Bought it from the music store right around the corner for $90! I bought it because I am all about my distortion, I bought so many distortion pedals since I have been playing guitar to try and find the pedal that would give me the distortion I am looking for, I have at least 9 or 10 distortion pedals! On my pedalboard I use for distortion the BOss Metal Zone and DS-1, and I have a ton of other pedals on my huge custom pedalboard.

    I go too crazy over my distortion, the EQ finally made me get what I wanted!!! Thank you Boss for this awesome pedal!!! I use it right after my Boss Metal Zone and DS-1. I use the Metal Zone for a big kick a$$ distortion and then kick on the EQ to get a huge, ins…

    I go too crazy over my distortion, the EQ finally made me get what I wanted!!! Thank you Boss for this awesome pedal!!! I use it right after my Boss Metal Zone and DS-1. I use the Metal Zone for a big kick a$$ distortion and then kick on the EQ to get a huge, insane distortion that I have been looking for for sooo long!!! I don't use the EQ on my DS-1, cause I have my DS-1 set up for a lighter distortion that sounds great! This EQ pedal can also turn your clean channel into what ever you want it to sound like, super clean, bassy, trebly, more middle, or whatever, this pedal really rocks!!!

    Should have boughten it earlier, I spent wayyyyy tooo much on distortion pedals when alls I needed was an EQ after my Metal Zone!

    It is made by Boss, built like a tank!!! WIll last you forever!!! The sound is amazing on this thing, you can get the sound you have been looking for with this EQ!!!

    Amazing pedal, really can shape up any distortion pedal you have that you would want a little heavier or fix it up!!! Insanely nice for a clean channel too!!!

    Boss GE7

    Boss GE-7 EqualizerPublished on 02/08/04 at 15:00
    I bought the GE7 pedal because I was not satisfied with te sound I had. Especialy the mids needed to get an accent, more then my amp could. So I bought the GE7 pedal at the local guitar shop for about 70 dollar.

    With the GE7 you can change your tone until you are satisfied. The seven switches offer a many options, from a deep bass to a thin high line. In this way you can create your own sound instead of the standard amp-sound.

    The unit needs some practise before you get it right. If you want an accent on the mids you are not supposed to just turn those switches whole the way up. You need to be much more subtle. If you realy turn those switches whole the way up the pedal is only useful f…

    It's a boss pedal all the way so it can take a lot of kicking. The switches are neither too lose or too tight, just briliant. The switches have a mid-point which you can feel when sliding them so you can easily can get to the basic.

    The pedal is useful for extreme sounds, as well as more subtle tone shifting. This way you can use it for accents in songs but also it can be a new basic for the whole of your sound.

    Boss GE-7 EQ Pedal

    Boss GE-7 EqualizerPublished on 01/16/02 at 15:00
    West music in coralville, Ia. Paid way to much...$90 plus tax. I needed solo boost for an outdoor gig that night, (surprise...oh by the way no soundman). It got me through but wasnt happy....although one night the monitor eq went out the pedal was an excellent backup!!!!! blew me away.

    volume boost.....hmmm im thinking..........made by boss.

    makes my sound weak and sterile....but maybe never found the right setting.

    its a boss....tank...tank...

    check for yourself i didnt care for it in guitar rig, but made a good on the fly replacement for monitor EQ!!!!

    This peddle was purchased at Spotts music store in Punxsutawney, PA. The price was 69.99 I believe.

    This peddle is built tough! I ran over it (by accident) when it fell out of my bag. And It still works, tire tracks and all! I don't recomend you run over yours but I had to tell that story. It's a great little eq espescially if ya don't have a rack or the money to buy a big one.

    The battery is hard to get in and out. ( more so the out part.)

    Built tough as nails.

    with level adjustments for 100,200,400,800 1.6k,3.2k and 6.4k all adjustable from 0 to +15 and -15 this peddle packs alot of sound control. I always decide whether I would spend my money on the same items if by chance I should e…

    Boss GE-7 EqualizerPublished on 06/25/01 at 15:00
    Bought it used from an ad in a newsgroup (rec.music.makers.guitar). Paid $40.


    It adds an adjustable signal boost while allowing you to shape high, middle, and low frequencies using the seven sliders on the pedal.


    It's all good!


    BOSS pedals are the best! Their construction has been top notch since day one. You could throw this solid metal box from a fast moving car and it would be fine.


    This pedal is a great addition to any signal chain. It is also awesome as a stand-alone unit. I have used this pedal for many years and it has never let me down.
