I'm curious if grabbing an EQ pedal would be worth it. I just checked MF to see the average price range, I'm willing to dish ~$100, $150 at the absolute most, though of course would prefer to keep it lower.

I'm mainly hoping to have a pedal where I could have various tones recalled whenever needed, for example hit the pedal for a Hendrix tone, then switch to a warmer fatter bluesy tone for another song, etc. (I don't know that all/most EQ pedals do this, if so then there ya go).

Thanks for any help.

I have the little $30 danelectro 6 band Eq and its really nice for attenuating/gain boosting, and generally tightening the sound up. No presets tho, its all done via sliders, as are most I believe.

Been checking it out, it does seem a good one. However I really would like some means of having several preset tones I could hit with a footswitch or somehow-- is there an EQ pedal that does this or am I looking for another device?

Thanks

Well the only thing that you can really do that is with a multi-fx pedal which genrally doesn't sound to amazing.

Either that or have like 6 EQ pedals setup for diffrent tones but obv that would cost tons and be a great hastle.

^thats pretty much right

just go with a mxr for now, and if you feel like it you could like 5 other eq pedals later
