I'm looking into an EQ, either rack mounted or pedal form. I was looking at Danelectro Fish n Chips, or PreSonus EQB3, though I don't have much experience in either. I've also seen the Boss stompbox Eq's. I don't know my budget, but I want to say $100 is generous, and $150 is absolute tops. Thanks!
MXR 10 band eq has volume and gain sliders and comes with a power supply.
Only problem is, the 3 music stores around here don't carry MXR. I know it's a lot different, but how does it compare to the Fish n Chips? I can actually try it out, and it's a bit cheaper as well.
The mxr has more control and isn't as noisy. The Fish n chips is considered to be ok if you're not gigging, don't plan on stomping on it and can put up with the noise.
Go for the Boss or MXR. The Dano isn't bad at all and isn't noisy, not sure where some are getting that idea from. It's just as quiet, if not quieter than the Boss and MXR, just looks and feels like a toy. The only complaint about the Dano is that the on/off switch isn't very assuring.
I may go for the Dano because I'm not afraid of breaking it. When I play, I'm not jumping around, nor would I really hammer on the thing. I'd probably have it on constantly anyway. My rack effect does some whacky things to my tone, but only when I use my lead channel, so I want to tweak it a bit. Whatever I get, I think I'm throwing it in my fx loop.
i own the fish n chips.. it provides a bit of noise but it gets the job done
