OVERVIEW

Finding it hard to get the perfect sound from your guitar? Maybe your guitar gets lost in the mix? Do you have major feedback issues with your acoustic? The problem's not your guitar-you need an equalizer! You can instantly improve the sound of your guitar with a little help from the EQ700.

Most performers don't have a clue about what good equalization can do for their sound. Maybe you've heard the old maxim, "Make a sine-wave to get really good sound," or "Make a smiley-face, that always works." Sadly, this qualifies as advice from the uninformed. Just as every room is unique, so is every musical instrument. Even guitars made by the same manufacturer, using the same materials, on the same day can vary a great deal.

People provide a good example of this principal-although we are all similar, we don't all wear the same size shoes, or even have the same color eyes. There is no one "perfect" equalization curve that fits every scenario; equalization is dynamic.

Most acoustic and electric guitar energy lies between 100 Hz and 6.4 kHz. Even slight changes in this range can cause a tremendous variation in overall energy and impact, as the human ear is especially sensitive to this range.

Boosting frequencies around 200 Hz - 400 Hz often provides warmth and body, while boosting frequencies in the 3.2 kHz - 6.4 kHz range adds clarity to clean guitar signals. Depending on the amount of distortion, this same range can ruin the sound of an overdriven electric guitar by adding harsh harmonics.

One of the most common mistakes is adding too much bass to acoustic guitars. If the low frequencies are boosted excessively, acoustics can easily get lost in the overall mix. Most acoustic guitars are also prone to feedback in the 200 Hz - 400 Hz range.

A general rule of thumb-the best results are often achieved by finding and reducing the frequency bands that are offending, and then turning up the overall volume, rather than boosting one specific band.

How the specific frequency bands of the EQ700 can shape your sound:
100 Hz (low bass)
Boost: To add fullness to guitars, especially clean electrics
Cut: To reduce muddy or boomy tone and control acoustic guitar feedback
200 Hz (soft bass)
Boost: To increase the warmth of all guitars and provide a slightly harder sound
Cut: To increase clarity and reduce feedback in acoustic guitars
400 Hz (hard bass)
Boost: To add definition to rhythm parts
Cut: To reduce feedback in acoustic guitars (This is a major feedback zone for piezo-equipped flattops)
800 Hz
Boost: To add an aggressive edge to the overall sound
Cut: For reducing the nasal or horn-like content, often referred to as the "cheap guitar" syndrome
1.6 kHz
Boost: To make the guitar cut through the mix. Creates a more distinctive plucked tone
Cut: To eliminate dullness and competition with vocals (vocal fundamentals occupy the range from about 1.0 kHz - 2.5 kHz)
3.2 kHz
Boost: To add significant attack to all guitars. Creates an even more distinctive plucked tone
Cut: To eliminate harshness
6.4 kHz
Boost: To add edge and increase brightness to all guitars
Cut: To soften thin-sounding guitars and remove string squeak

Get total control over your tone and put the brakes on annoying feedback, no matter what the performance situation.

        I build banjolas, they don't have much of a low end but hooking in this equalizer helps with the lower range of sound and it was cheaper than buying a new amp, thanks!

          This effects pedal, even though the body is plastic, packs the same punch as the boss D-7. Side -by-side comparison, it produced the same dynamic ranges

            Does exactly what an EQ pedal should do! I've placed it several places to highlight and fine tune effects and as a clean boost and it's definitely helpful all across the board! It's simple and responsive and is definitely on the smaller side. Great price for a great EQ!

              Thought I would try an affordable EQ to see if it would help with my tone tweaking and it did what I needed, took off some of the high end shrillness and bottom end flubber. HH Strat through DRRI with distortion. With my set up this EQ works best in front of the dirt, otherwise it actually killed some of the distortion I wanted.

                This is a good value for an EQ. Copies a Boss GE-7. I does have the notched middle on the sliders like Boss, but works the same. This makes a good booster and tone shaper.

                  A basic guitar EQ that does what it is supposed to do without adding noise. The price can't be beat. My only suggestion is to to get some superglue and glue the caps on top of the EQ sliders as soon as you get this. They come off easily and you will hate crawling around on the floor in a dark club looking for the little tops. They are small and hard to see when they come off.

                    This is a great pedal for the price. I did not want to spend a lot since I am using this as an experiment to tweak the sound of a Randall amp that I just got. Have had other cheap eq's in the past & they seem to hiss or lose tone quality. The BEHRINGER EQ700 GRAPH EQ PEDAL is an awesome bang for the buck. It does what it is supposed to, no noise or tone loss & the price is right.
