hey just need some quick advice. Do you guys think its a bit of an overkill to have a Furman PQ-3 Parametric EQ and a BBE Sonic Maximizer running in the same rig??

also does anyone have a favourite distortion pedal/rack unit they would recommended?
there's not a lot of love for the sonic maximizer around here.

as for distortion pedal, budget? styles? used or new? etc....there's a stickied thread up the top of the forum with criteria that you should list so we can help you.
Im open to any suggestions with distortion. considering at the moment Im using a metal zone (MT-2)....

Amp is Randall RX120D....
