UTILIZATION

The EQ is pretty no-frills. Basically, the idea is to create an EQ carve that fits a particular song/style/solo sound that one would want to use, and then it can be switched on and off. Very simple - great idea for boosting solos, or doing the "telephone sound", heavily bandpassed. And the pedal's housing is top notch - it's a Boss! Stomp switch is great, everything is great. Except...

SOUND QUALITY

...the noise. The noise is the downfall of this pedal. It induces an inherent hiss sound to the overall tone. It's not terrible unless you are really anal, but I am. The musicality of the EQ is pretty decent - the bands all work well, and are carefully chosen, popularly used EQ band settings to shape tone. But that hiss bothers me, honestly.

OVERALL OPINION

I'd give it a 7. Better than average, yet could use a bit of work due to the noise factor. I saw that there is a mod available for it, and I'll have to research it to see if that helps take care of the noise that the pedal induces. Again, the noise is probably not that severe to most ears, I'm just a bit picky. I took mine back to the store to trade for a different pedal.
