I just got a 10 band EQ last week and I think it's a good thing because you can tweak it to get a ton of different tones from classic to grunge to metal to a AM radio sound. and the volume and gain controls are good. now if you only play one type of music and can get the particular sound you want out of your amp's 3 band EQ, then you don't really need it. but if you play a bunch of different things, I think it's a really good thing to have.

and imo, it adds some beef to my sound without adding any kind of fuzz or distortion.

btw, the EQ I got is the MXR 108.

the MXR and the MXR Kerry King EQ (which is basically the same pedal) both come with "sample settings", so it's not hard to put it to one of those settings and then tweak it.

you experiment with the EQ on your amp first. if you can't notice much difference then you havent got a good enough ear for tone yet
