I'm getting ready to get an EQ pedal, but not sure which one. I'm leaning towards the MXR 10 band, but does anyone really need that much control or is 7 band ok?

Also what is the point of having separate input gain and output volume controls on the EQ? Thanks

I'd get the 10-band. It just adds that much more versatility to your sound. The advantage to having the gain and volume onboard is you can use it to boost these parameters without tweaking your amp. This is the best EQ pedal out there imo.

This.

The volume and gain are nice for boosts really for solo's and such

If you can afford it, get it.
If you cant afford it, look @ the Danelectro Fish-n-Chips.

The mxr is awesome, but also expensive.

I'll most likely run it on all the time so the pre and post levels aren't as important to me as they would be to some. Has anyone tried the Biyang pedals? They are supposedly true bypass, a lot cheaper than MXR and are getting great reviews.

Boss makes a Ge-7 eq but it is not that great. You can get some good tones out of it but with that pedal it is either muddy or dense in tone. I have heard nothing but good things about the MXR 10 band, eventually I will own one. Eqs can act as a boost with the high out put cranked and all the other knobs neutral.

I have the Biyang flanger...and I was really impressed with the sound and quality of it. Haven't tried any of their other stuff though.

As you can see from my sig, I have 2 Biyang pedals.
I have to say I think they're frikkin' brilliant! (Especially for not being all that expensive).


Edit: If you really don't need the MXR 10-Band EQ (which I also use and must say it's the one pedal I own which I would DEFINITELY replace if lost/stolen/broken)... then go for the MXR 6-Band over the Boss GE-7.

Damn right it can.

Best way to use it is to dial in as good a tone as you can on your amp(clean) and then fine tune it with your EQ.
If you were to use a boost/OD/dist pedal then that would just go on top of your previously constructed EQ.
