Hi Guys,
I am considering getting a BOSS GE-7 eq box, to enable more control over my newly installed B-Band A2.2. My other guitar has the A3.2 system which has onboard controls and I miss having the control these give. At the moment , I feel I need more bass for bottom end grunt, my band has no bass or drums so its down to me to fill the bottom end .
Any comments on this pedal would be gratefully recieved
Cheers
Mel

Mel - Just a personal opinion, but I would consider something like an LR Baggs Para-DI.

Thanks for that Dale, I'll see if I can find a stockist in the UK. This looks like what I need, I particularly like the lower bass control @ 85Hz. Most other Eq boxes seem to be @ 100Hz.
The ParaDi has had lots of mentions on this forum, but I didnt realise exactly what it was  bigrin

Fine little pedal. It's a Boss. Reliable and lasts forever.

I have found a supplier in the UK £195 , which is too much.

I have some Boss pedals at the moment, they are reliable. With the GE-7, I have heard they can be noisy??
That is really the only concern I have with this pedal.

I haven't found that to be a problem. Relatively noiseless, I guess. It depends on several factors. I mostly use mine with my acoustic and find it works fine. Passive electronics are quieter than active ones though.
