So i wrote a week ago about getting a distortion pedal and was recommended eq pedals instead to boost certain frequencies for certain rhythm and lead situations. i tried a friends Boss GE-7 eq and its really good except on my 6505+ i do a palm mute and it will give me this weird bassy feedback sound that sounds like my speaker will crack or something. is this what makes the mxr 10 band eq better? and how can i stop that noise? is it just ordinary feedback or something different

You'll do far better with the MXR 10-band.. I own one, it's an amazing little piece of gear.

And most who own a 6505+ also own the MXR. It works wonders on that amp.

Not to mention, most don't like the GE-7. I've never used one, though.

I've got a ge7 and a 6 band mxr and i actually prefer the boss one out of the two, extra band and i like having the level control too, just find it a little more versatile due to that.

Maybe try dropping the bass a touch? may help it a little, i'd say just have a really long mess about until you can nail the tone your'e after. You can use it to cut frequiences as well as boost them remember so maybe you need to do that a little. try some different settings on your amp too. I kinda tweak my settings depending on what type of venue my band is playing in so keep that in mind as well, id say you just need to find the right balance between the pedal and your amp.

Sounds to me like you have too much bass going on. I'd cut some of the lower frequencies with the pedal.

the 10 band has a level and gain control in addition to 4 extra bands over the 6 band so i'd go for that one. im not a big fan of most of bosses products and i think that mxr makes better eqs.

The Boss sounds better than the MXR after it's modded, but the MXR is the better pedal stock. The MXR is also a lot more useful, because of the 3 extra bands. Most people go for it over the Boss for those reasons.

I have two Boss GE7's, because I love how tank like they are, I hate the fact that the MXR's are 18V which I don't want to deal with, and I know they have a lot of potential through modding. If you don't want to get into that though, I highly recommend the MXR. It's a really good pedal.

I'll admit, I'm annoyed by the 18V thing. I have to have another adapter solely for my MXR.. While a 1-Spot powers my delay and Bad Monkey.

I'm pretty sure most hobby guitarists (Such as myself) wouldn't want to take the time to mod a pedal, but if you're open to it then maybe you should try modding the Boss.

I know nothing about mods or anything so I can't help there. I'll still stick to my original post and just say the MXR is an awesome pedal
