« Sweet range »

Publié le 07/19/11 à 16:15
After the fizzle out of the Boss Ge-6 then came the Boss GE-7. This is higher performing pedal anyway. So they discontinued Boss GE-6 was a moot point. This one featured a an extra frequency of 6.4khz and also a level or volume control slider. Like the previous pedal this one would increase or decrease the volume of what ever frequency by 15 db. This give you a lot of range to dial in the tone you are looking for. In addition the level knob would allow you to put the volume at the exact same level as when the pedal is engaged or disengaged. This would allow you to get the tone you want without a volume shift. Then you could use the level slider to increase in volume if you wanted to use the pedal as a solo boost. You can boost the levels you want for leads and have a nice volume increase to cut through the mix properly.

SOUND QUALITY

This is a great pedal that took the Boss Ge-6's place and has remained the Boss Eq pedal since 1981. Not much has changed since then other than a few components and a PSA adapter as well as the plant moving from Japan to Taiwan.

I prefer this pedal over the Boss GE-6 because of the extra parameters of control ability. You get the extra frequency of 6.4 as well as the level control. This pedal will give you some gain addition to your overdriven sound so if you need some extra uumph then this is a great pedal to have. This pedal go well with a overdriven amp that needs to dial in certain frequencies that are missing. Like most Marshall's need a boost in the low end. usually the first thing you do when dialing in a JCM 800 is crank the bass. This will get you that low end and a little extra sizzle on the tone with the level increase.

OVERALL OPINION

AT new these pedals come in right at around $100. You can find them for cheaper but this is usually the going rate for this pedal. This is a must have for someone needing to tailor their tone a little more. If you are lacking or have too much of something then this pedal will take care of that for you in a snap. I would recommend this to anyone who needs to boost their amp for certain frequency responses.
