So I have a Randall V2 Tube head.
It has a pretty badass 6-band equalizer on it too.
I was thinking about buying another equalizer though and I'm not sure if that's just ridiculous or not.

The thing is I love the tone so much when the amps equalizer is on and I want to leave it on all the time but its always so loud that it drowns out my other guitarist in my band., so I use it for just solos.

I wanted to buy maybe an mxr equalizer so I can turn my amp down and have its equalizer always on then have this other EQ pedal for a boost for my solos.

Is this a dumb idea?

use the volume knob on the amp. then you can leave the graphic EQ on all the time

I don't think I quite understand.

The onboard EQ is footswitchable? And it doesn't have a level control? But the EQ you set makes the amp a lot louder?

And you like the EQ on all the time, or only for solo boosts?

If it's too loud, can't you just turn down the volume a little bit?

You can also use the volume knob on your guitar while you're playing, turn it down a little while playing at standard rehearsal volume and just turn it up when you have to play a solo to get some boost.

BOSS GE-7 EQ 7-Band Graphic Equalizer w/Master Level Control.

Inexpensive and fantastic. Love the master volume sliding level controller.
I keep this pedal on all of the time. The Boss GE-7 and act as a boost
in the line. I place it before my expensive pedals, after my wah.

Gotta check this Boss out and AB it with MXR.

The idea of having a sound for solos by using a different EQ pedal with different settings is a good idea. However, what has been said already makes sense - roll down the volume on the amp/guitar and turn it back up for solos...
If you feel you need a different tone/sound for solos, it's not a bad idea, but if you already use other pedals to achieve the sound you need then, then why bother?
