I'm thinking of saving for one (MXR 6-Band, €120) and want to know how everone else ranks them.
Gearwise, I have a Les Paul copy (~Epiphone) and a Vox AD30VT.

Basically an EQ pedal shapes your tone more, allows you to boost or lower frequencies. It is useful for boosting for solo's, or tweaking your tone a little if you're not satisfied. There is so many ways to use an EQ pedal though. If I were you I'd try one out and fiddle with the bands.

For me it's one of my most important pedals, I have it on permanently.
A lot of times when you're out gigging, the sound you take time working to get in practice isn't what you get in certain venues; it's used to keep that perfect tone.

An EQ is the most useful pedal a guitarist can own.

More useful than people let on.

I don't think that they're vital, you can certainly do without one, but if you're playing with a band then that frequency tweaking and shaping can make a huge improvement to the overall sound.

Hey, I just read this thread, and makes me want an EQ pedal again. (I was GASing for one like 2 months ago). How is the Danelectro Fish n Chips, and is it worth it to get a 10-band EQ?

if you're gigging, get the MXR IMO, it's built like a tank and sounds great. If you don't gig, or very infrequent, the F&C is a great pedal for the cash IMO. As long as it doesn't take a beating, it's relatively quiet and a good sounding effective pedal.
