« Beaten by Danelectro? »

The Boss GE-7 was one of the first pedal equalizers to come into the market. It features a seven band EQ with a +/- 15dB adjustment and and output level slider. Those wanting to shape the tone of their amplifier will want to try a pedal like this in the loop. If you're looking for a very clean and shapeable boost pedal, the GE-7 can help with that as well.

UTILIZATION

All Boss pedals are extremely well built and durable. They can take a lot of abuse, and you don't have to worry about breaking them. The sliders feel very nice and tactical, and the switch feels like every other Boss pedal. The biggest issue with this is the high noise ratio. For some reason, these pedals are extremely noisy compared to other equalizers on the market today. It could just be the dated circuit; I'm not sure. No clue how the manual is because I never really bothered reading it.

SOUND QUALITY

As stated above, the main issue with this is the noise. If you can get past that, this can be an extremely versatile pedal. If you use it in the loop, you can adjust the frequencies to sculpt whatever tone you have in your head. It can drastically change the tone of an amp. If you're looking for an alternative to an overdrive pedal, max out the output slider; you'll slam the amp with +15dB of clean boost goodness. This works quite nice on Mesa Boogie Rectifiers.

OVERALL OPINION

Given how much noise there is with these pedals, I can't really recommend them. In fact, Danelectro has a pedal that's just like this. It's not quite as sturdy, but the price is right, it's dead quiet and it doesn't suck tone. If you're in the market for an EQ pedal, I really think you'd be better off with the Danelectro pedal.
