I would prefer a good 3 band or a 12 band, to a 7 band anyday.

How come?

That is simultaneously brilliant and obscene. I honestly don't know if I despise, or admire you.

A good 3 band can do what you want simply, youve got your lows, mids and highs all rolled into one, and its good and useful and simple. I personally find the 7 band a bit lacing, its got more but not enough for what it should have, thats why i would prefer a 12band as it gives you a nice big range.

I'd go for the MXR M-80 bass D.I., it's great and it has distortion on it, it's my must have pedal, for all the time.

If you're just looking for a tone shaping pedal, the boss will be much better, as it is cheaper and has several bands of eq to adjust. If you're looking for a DI, I think you'd be better off with MXR's M80 or a Sansamp bass driver, as they both have a few more features, namely distortion/overdrive, that this pedal lacks. This thing really seems too expensive for what it is.

Besides, I already own a distortion pedal.
I think i'm gonna go with the Boss.
Thanks everyone

I second this motion.

I own one of these, and while the distortion is not great, the EQ is pretty swell.

There is also a noise gate built into the distortion channel, so what I do is turn the distortion all the way down and the "trigger" all the way up so the distortion channel is solely a noise gate. works well.

Actually I love the distortion on it, I use it as my main distortion.
