About BOSS EQ Pedals

BOSS EQ Pedals are an obvious choice for fans of tone sculpting and musicians who want to bring out the best in their tone. If you're looking for the clearest guitar sounds, then a compact EQ pedal with adjustable EQ sliders could be exactly what you're looking for. If you find that you're getting a little muddiness or shrill resonant frequencies from your pickups, or even an unwanted hum from your pedal board, an EQ pedal will allow you to dial out what you dislike with your tone. EQ pedals of course have many other functions, including letting you smoothly change between single coil and humbucking guitars without having to adjust your amp setting, or even as a boost pedal into your favourite tube amp. EQ pedals are amongst the most popular BOSS pedals available, and after hearing what it can do for your signal chain, you'll understand why they're so popular!

BOSS EQ pedals give you lots of creative control over your electric guitar, bass or any other instrument. EQ pedals work by letting you boost or cut a range of specific frequencies via a row of slider switches on the front panel of the pedal. EQ pedals can be used in a diverse range of situations: as a solo boost; as a way of compensating between differing volume levels of various guitars; as a tone shaping device and lots more! EQ pedals are very useful utilities to have at your disposal when you need them and the BOSS GE-7 is one of the most popular choices by musicians of all styles.

Frequently Asked Questions about BOSS EQ Pedals

Question: Is a BOSS EQ pedal worth it?
Yes, if you have an acute ear for tone and like things to sound a specific way, an EQ pedal will be an essential part of your signal chain.
Question: What does a BOSS equalizer pedal do?
A BOSS EQ pedal lets you enhance or subdue specific frequencies in your tone.
Question: What do you use a BOSS EQ pedal for?
Amongst its many uses, a BOSS EQ pedal can be used to dial out resonant frequencies in your tone, or for achieving an overall consistent tone if you like to switch between different guitar models.
Question: How can I use a GE-7 pedal to match up volumes between my Strat and my Les Paul?
It's relatively straightforward: bring the volume up a little and boost both the low end and the mids, being careful about how much of both you add! This is to give the Strat the same relative characteristics as the Les Paul and avoid the dreaded volume drop that occurs when changing between guitars with differing outputs. The Strat will still sound very much like a Strat, it'll just have a smoother sonic transition with the Les Paul which has a naturally wider and louder sound.
Question: Can I use an EQ to sound heavier?
Yes, definitely! Use the BOSS GE-7 to get extra heaviness from your guitar's already high gain tone. The classic 'scoop' is achieved by sliding the centre frequencies right down and either leaving the bass and treble or, for maximum 'Dimebag', boosting these to achieve an ultra aggressive 'scooped' sound. The mid frequencies have been scooped right out.
Question: I want to use the GE-7 pedal for a solo boost: how should I set the sliders?
This simplest thing is to have every frequency ever so slightly boosted for a louder signal. Another option is the mid-boost: create a small 'bump' in the centre of the sliders by raising the middle frequencies a little, taking a little extra on the upper mids towards the right hand side of the sliders. One slightly unorthodox method is to cut every frequency equally and have the 'pedal off' setting be your boost and your 'pedal on' be your rhythm tone. It's very effective and well worth trying!
Question: Who uses BOSS EQ pedals?
The guitarist who likes to fine tune their guitar tone with precision.
