I was wondering if there is really a big diffrence between a maximizer and an EQ. I was looking at a 10 Band EQ for about $110, and a BBE Sonic Stomp Maximizer for about $100. Which one would I be better off with, if not both?
im curious to find out what the BBE maximizer does
yes. a sonic maximizer acts pretty much like a frequency compressor. if you hit a treble string it will quiet it/amplify the other frequencies so you have a really huge full tone with virtually whatever you do, the biggest use of an eq is not to make you sound bigger but to make certain parts sound smaller, like the bass in a lead guitar typically.
An EQ would be more versatile, but I would probably take a BBE.
