ok so i need an EQ pedal and i think most people use the mxr 10 band but funds are short so i was wondering if the danelectro fish and chips would do a good enough job?

also i need a noise gate and ive read that the ISP is the best but yet again funds are short so would the boss ns-2 do a good enough job?

The DE is pretty good but you should try to stretch to the MXR 6-band. ISP is really the best. Try looking used to get better deals.
i have no complaints with my boss ns-2. and so many pro guitars have the same pedal on their boards it must be pretty darn good!
