This is a nice eq for the money.
It's not a boutique high-end hand built eq, but if you just need to cut some frequencies in your guitar spectrum, it will work for that purpose.
It is voiced specifically for the guitar range.
A lot of reviewers remarked about the noise level that this eq can add to their signal path. If you talk to any professional sound guy you will find out that eq's are best used for cutting frequencies, not adding them to your signal path.
If you keep the level control at the unity (mid) level and only cut unwanted frequencies, the noise shouldn't be a problem. Keep in mind that cutting those frequencies on an eq this small will lower your signal level a bit overall, so you may need to boost it up somewhere up the path. If you boost it from this eq, it will add noise. I use this pedal to cut 200Hz from my signal path because my Marshall just kills me with 200Hz frequencies.

I love the range of this EQ. Having control over the 6.4k+ region adds a lot of clarity to the sound. It's not as wide of a freq range as the MXR's 10-band M-108, and wider than the M-109. It has everything an EQ should, plus a gain control (which I don't really use; never been too impressed with EQ pedals as gain boosters). The only problem is when the unit is bypassed: it eats away at the tone. Specifically, I noticed a thinner sound in the low-midrange area, and an overall decrease in dynamics. The resulting sound didn't eaven measure up to the tone without the unit in the loop, even after tweaking the settings to where I wanted.

That said, it is built like a tank, just like all other Boss products. Boss pedals have never failed me, and I'm pretty rough on them. I've never had this problem with any of my other Boss pedals (RV-3, RV-5, TU-3 and DD-6), so I'm thinking it may have just been a dud. Nonetheless, I will be picking up an MXR 108 soon.

    This should be a standard in everyone's pedal setup, cleans up your signal and will work as a boost as well.

      This pedal will brighten up your tube amp. I ran the boss eq through the fx loop of my Mesa Roadster. The results were exactly what I was loking for.

        I have multiple pedal boards. One of them has a GE-7 that I purchased in the mid-80s, and it still works great. BOSS stomp boxes are durable and reliable.

          Using this as a boost pedal, works well and cuts through the band to bring solos to the front pretty well. Nice volume boost, easy to manipulate sliders, easy to hit the foot switch on the fly while playing.

            Comments about Boss GE-7 Equalizer Pedal:

            This is an EQ and boost rolled into one. Great for boosting and decreasing unpleasant frequencies. It can also make your acoustic guitar sound like a more expensive guitar. Use this before or after your Overdrive pedal for more of everything. Makes your Modulations much better. There is no downfall from having one or two of the GE-7 EQ pedals on your pedalboard.

                    Comments about Boss GE-7 Equalizer Pedal:

                    I initially looked at two of the most popular equalizers, the BOSS and the MXR, and chose the MXR. I quickly found that it was not easy to use. The sliders were tiny and were not easy to move, and the LED's were not that useful; even with the lights the sliders tended to blend in with the face of the pedal. I returned the MXR and got the BOSS and I have been much happier since. It is much more legible and user-friendly. I am not obsessed with sound quality, so it may differ minutely from the MXR but it doesn't seem to adversely affect the tone of the signal. Unless you're really picky about your equalizer, this one is likely to do, especially in a live situation. I find it useful mainly as a boost, but I love having the flexibility to sculpt my sound so easily! A really useful pedal!
