Looking to pick up the 31 band for about $ 179.00. Is this an oka unit or will it rob some SQ from the system even if on bypass. My experience has always been better sound quality with less plug ins in the system, but some better quality units are okay to have. I just do not want to spend $ 500 on an eq.

My system will be an H&K Triamp Mk II and Orange cbinet. I would like to be able to refine sounds with an eq if necessary for certain tones.

a 31 band eq for guitar is pretty unnecessary, those EQ's are for PA systems

Amps:

Yeah, I know. I wont use it much and be on bypass most of the time, but I am pretty good with an eq.

Still doesn't change the fact that it's utterly pointles - the majority of those frequencies simply don't apply to the guitar.

The thing is, many of those bands will be wasted. This is my opinion, but anything below 100hz and above say 17khz is totally useless for a guitar. I'd get a nicer 15 band or something for maybe a bit more.

Makes total sense. I just saw this eq cheap and thought why not.

yea large EQs are to tweak room noise...take out echo and feedback...

Also Behringer gear is cheap and works sometimes but they are very unreliable...I would not buy from them again...

yeah. Behringer products are not built very well. they'll break on you left and right, externally and internally. i would only recommend them if you're on a budget, then they're okay, but only for the time that they last. they're very unreliable, so i would recommend something better built and better sounding. everything about Behringer isn't top notch, they sound pretty bad as well.

i'd beg to differ with the sounding bad type deal. have you played using their eq? they might be a bit skimpy on the build quality, but to say they sound "pretty bad" might be pushing it a bit there ;P

I don't bash Behringer too much, I just agree that their build quality isn't consistan't at all...some products work, others don't...and that changed way too much.

I got a small 802 mixer years ago from them and it was too noisy so I returned it. Then I got a KX1200 a little while after than and still use it today, great product.

So yea some of their products work, others dont...

When it comes to an EQ with a lot of moving parts I would not go with Behringer...
