i'm looking at getting an epiphone valve junior which does not have the 3 band eq you usually see on an amp such as tone, bass and middle. i was wondering does an eq pedal do the job as the onboard eq. if so could recomend any ones that are worth looking at, i would have about €50 to spend on one.

Save some cash and get the smaller electro harmonix/ MXR EQ pedal, its pointless buying a cheap crappy EQ pedal, itll just make it sound bad overall

The danelectro one is fine. Its lacking more in features than sound quality. (Most notably the gain slider on the MXR.)

thanks for the suggestions. would the pedal do the same thing as if i was using an onboard 3 band eq?

In general what do people think of Danelectro pedals? (Sorry if this is off topic, but there's already a good discussion about them.)
I've seen them so incredibly cheap on Ebay that I was really considering buying some but currently the only pedals I've owned are Boss, and I'm afraid to try new things...

yeah, and you should look on Ebay. Unless the box and the fact that it's new means a lot to you, you can get pedals at about 1/2 their retail price. So with that in mind you may be able to afford a higher end pedal.

yes. it will simply stack. the pedal shapes ur pickups natural eq, then the amp shapes that overall sound. so it just gives u more control over ur tone (even more-so on the pedal cause theres more bands).

i love my fish n chips. the only thing is, if u push the slider too much to give a lot of boost, it gets kinda muddy/harsh. so use it in moderation (although this may happen with all eq pedals, the DE is the only one iv owned).

The MXR has a gain and a level... I don't understand the difference but apparently there is one.

Ah, my bad then. If anyone in here has the MXR, can you please explain this?
