In a few days I plan on going to guitar center and getting a few pedals.

I was going to pick up a Bad Monkey to use as a clean boost to tighten up the flubby bass of my recto.

But then I was just reading about the MXR 10 Band EQ....

Could I use this pedal to tighten up the bass on my Rect-O-Verb?

I really don't know much about EQs.
So any info on this one would be helpful!

The EQ will probably solve your problems at least to the point how good your amp is. Got a good volume boost also. In my opinion an eq should be everyones 1st pedal.

I just got a 5150 and my first pedal is definitely going to be a noise gate/suppressor.
