I need a pedal that will be a boost for my solos?Is it a good EQ pedal all I need?
My gear:
Jackson RR3 moded (EMG 81/85, OFR)
Jackson JS30 (with Duncan JB/Jazz from my RR3)
Peavey studio pro 112
MXR Double shot dist.
MXR 10 band EQ
Crybaby 535Q

a clean booster. some use an overdrive pedal, or an EQ pedal.

but some of those are noisy. clean boosters come in a nice price, and not so noisy.

I'd say an EQ pedal setup to boost your mids

For the best tingle, use Original Source mint. That shit feels amazing on your balls.

either would be ok. Maybe a TubeScreamer. The MXR Mini-amp would work well.

Well, I tried to use my Zakk Wylde overdrive after my other dist. pedal but sounds really like s***.
I'm thinking of buying MXR 10-band EQ?
Any suggestions about that?

again, EQ pedals are generally noisy. i had a 6-band MXR too. it was noisy as hell.

MXR makes a pedal called "Micro Amp" and that one's real good.

others are:
Fulltone Fat Boost (gives a fatter sound)
Seymour Duncan Pickup Booster
DOD Preamp
BBE Boosta Grande (i like this one too.)

yes for building, i recommend:
Alembic Stratoblaster <<< clean, super, i love it.
AMZ MiniBooster <<< pretty much Fulltone Fat Boost. awesome.
AMZ Mosfet Boost <<< again, Jack Orman does a great job. super clean.
EHX LPB <<< easiest build. it's similar to the MiniBooster, but a bit noisy.

^well, if u boost a certain frequency, it gets noisy. to my ears, clean boosters don't get as much noise as EQs.

You could always get an EQ and then get a noise gate, but that's extra money and will most likely kill the sustain you're adding...

My GE-7 makes a lot of noise. I was thinking of trying some other EQ's out. I also have EHX LPB-1 which I use as a slight boost with my TS9. I have it dialed pretty low, so I don't really notice any colorization.
