lol i wanna boost my b-52 with good distortion and i dunno rlly how to use one at all help??
Really... really... ?

MXR 10 Band is a good EQ. I also have a Roktek 6 band that works well and doesn't suck tone. Cost me 15$. The sliders to the left are bass, to the right are treble, and the middle ones are the mids. Boost and cut as needed.

But it sounds like an overdrive might be what you want to up the gain or just tighten things up. OD808 is great for that, and the Bad Monkey will do the same thing for cheap.
