So, i have a VK, and i've heard of an EQ being very useful for it.
I was wondering what the best EQ would be, keep in mind money does matter here.

I was thinking the Fish n Chips, $30. Would it be good enough and help my tone?

I was also looking at the MXR 108, $120, and obviously the price is a little high.

Is the MXR worth saving for, or should i get the Fish n Chips?

Other recomendations would be helpful. thanks.

Might as well get the MXR.
Higher quality components, better build, true bypass, etc.

Yeah, would it be a dramatic difference to the 10?

Is the gain knob worth sacrificing?

I would save for the MXR, it is worth saving for and it shouldn't take that long to get!

Alright. I have a question about the gain slider.

Would it be bad to use on my VK, or would it be helpful?

IMO the gain slider is really helpful. it just adds to the versatility. plus, MORE br00t4lz

thats what i was thinking.

But as ive read everywhere, you want the natural distortion out of your amp, will the gain slider do that, or is it just added solid-state distortion?

By gain it actually just means output volume; you can use it to drive the front end of your VK harder without it sounding at all artificial.

Save up for the MXR it adds alot of versatility and built like a tank.

Also the gain slider just increases the level amount so it boosts up the preamps a bit. And its great to have for none br00talz as well. If you running really hot pickups you can decrease the gain a bit for cleans and so on.

But wouldn't you want to put it in the fx loop?


You can stick it anywere you like, it depends on what you are wanting from it and how you want to use it..

Depends on whether you'd want to adjust the clipping/eq of the pre distortion or post distortion path
