Which eq pedal would you choose between the mxr 10 band or the boss ge7? is it worth the extra 30 dollars for the mxr 10?

The 10 band is alot better than the GE-7, which is said to be somewhat noisy and not truly transparent - the 10 has greater boost/cut and features a more specific spectrum, not to mention gain/volume controls, which are nice to have to control just how loud you are.

Keep in mind the gain control on the 10-band doesn't boost preamp gain, it controls the level of signal going into the pedal's input.

Of course, you could get a used 15 band rack EQ for cheaper than either of them on eBay, but it might be more complex than you need or want, and most rack EQs aren't footswitchable, so if you're looking to use the EQ as a boost as opposed to something 'always on', you might want to go for one of the pedal options instead.

definitely the MXR, the Boss GE-7 is garbage. MXR also used to make a 6 band eq if you can find one, I saw one on craigslist yestrday for $50.

the GE-7 is embarrassingly bad. Probably one of boss's worst pedals tbh.

yeah but about 75% of the time when your looking at a Boss Pedal it's going to be Made in Taiwan

Yes it's worth the extra $30. Get the 10 band, it's far more versatile, the volume/gain knobs are worth their weight in yak fat.

The parametric EQ lets you set the exact frequency you want want to cut or boost

If you can, definitely go for the 10-band option. I have one, and although I don't know your specific music styles it should help much more than the other.

Or as mentioned, you can just get the six band option. I tried that in making my decision between it and the 10-band, and went with the ten because I had the extra money and found the other features of it useful.
