    This does amazing things for my rig- I killed the rumble of death I get with my big-gauge strings on an SG standard, and brought out a beautiful crispness reminiscent of an LP with just a little tweaking.

    This is also great in dynamic situations too- I was soloing last night and hit a spot on the neck (around the 5th-7th fret on my low-three) where I just could not be heard- higher stuff and lower stuff was fine, but there was this tonal gap where I became invisible- so I simply reached down and nudged up the '800' slider a touch, and WHAM- there I was- cutting above the rhythm guitar player beautifully w/o drowning out the vocals.

    BUT... It adds a noticeable hiss- this can get unbearable depending on where in your chain you put it.

    I cannot keep it anywhere in the effects loop of my marshall 50w combo- or it drives me out of the practice room.

    The most bearable place I found for it was right near the beginning of my chain- directly after my compressor/boost. The hiss is very slight in this spot, I can barely notice it, further down the chain, however, is bad news in *my* rig. The hiss is also very slight (maybe even gone) if I put it *before* my compressor/boost, but I don't like what it does to the compression- so for now it lives right after.

    I've heard the Maxon is just as hissy for twice the price, so I'm keeping this pedal until I can afford a WMD parametric EQ for my loop, at which point, I will probably still keep this pedal at the beginning of my chain :)

    I bought this pedal expecting to be able to fix my trebly sound, it couldnt if you put the bass sliders any where past the 0 mark it sounds all bubbly and like your gonna break the speaker and if you try to cut the treble you lose all your energy. and and past that it just buzzes so much if the pedal sounded good i could live with it (or buy a noise gate)but considering it makes it worse i plan on returning it.

        Very nice. Lets you shape your sound to however you want it. Some complain about an extra hiss coming from the pedal when engaged. I have not experienced this and I play at very high gain settings. This can also be used as a boost pedal. Very durable and will last a long time.

              I loved the 6 band so much I opt for the 10 band. I perfer the 6. Easy to dial for the most part. my settings look like, down up, down up down with the hi and lowwest hz on the down.
              Has a bit of a hiss to the thing usless sliders are flat. The tone that you get is worth the hiss plane and simple.

              If this were to get losed I would try another brand but would recommend this as a soild unit.

                  this little pedal really impressed me. I put it behind the Dime Distortion pedal and it opened up the floodgates of my Crate and then I drowned in a sea of metal. Really versatile and I'm just really happy I bought it. Rock on!!!!

                        I installed a DeArmond 210 pickup in a Martin Dreadnought for the ability to run it through my electric guitar rig. After adjusting the pickup and a VOX 15 Watt C1 to the best possible tone I was still missing the bottom end and the higher frequencies were too biting. After inserting this effect between my compressor and supressor with a few tweaks the guitar was balanced up and down the scale. It's also great for tweaking my Les Paul (PP pickups) and SG (P90's) tones. Noisless effect and generally it is always active now on my pedalboard.

                        its an eq pedal, all analog with true bypass, from MXR. its really good. it takes a white to perfect your tone (i had my friend do it for me, who does a lot of studio mixing and such) but it can really accentuate the good sounds coming from your guitar.

                        The only thing i wish it had is a master volume slider or knob or whatever. its annoying how if you're too loud youd have to push each slider down.

                          There is a bit of hiss from the EQ but not over bearing, perhaps some noise reduction can clean it up. All and all it's very transparent and you can really dial in you tone easy. This little box can do wanders to your sound, 6 adjustments seems about right for quick adjustments when playing out.

                                It does what it's suppose to do (or what I want) but adds an unbearable hiss; briefly I have this pedal first in the chain of my guitar effects followed by a Wompler distortion pedal. I haven't tried it in the effects loop.

                                It does what I want for a clean setting; but with distortion, whether pedal or amp (Peavey Classic 50) distortion, it hisses.

                                I suppose the fix is to buy MXR's noise gate or noise clamp.

                                Comments about MXR M-109 6-Band Graphic EQ:

                                I bought this pedal used, and as the second owner I'm impressed with its continued durability and range of tone. First off, it's a tank, like most MXR pedals. Sturdy components and attention to detail (especially the LED equipped sliders that make dark stages a non-issue). Second, and most importantly, this thing does its job perfectly. I bought it to use as a tone control for my amp, a custom built AC10 clone that only has 2 controls, Loud and Louder. I play this through a peavey 212 cab, so while it is perfect for massive humbucker crunch, it's a bit dark for my tele. This EQ pedal solved all my tone issues. It took about 15 minutes of fiddling around to find (and I know this seems cliche) the PERFECT tone for jangly, county style rhythm and leads. My wife can attest to this: she came out to the music room and found me literally jumping for joy, kissing my Tele. No exaggeration.
                                Anyway, if you have an amp (I'd say probably tube rather than SS, but I haven't tested it on a SS) that needs tonal adjustment, get this pedal. Or, if you want a treble boost, it's good for that too- there IS a slight volume boost that would be nice to have more control over, but I think most of us can live with that- for me, this is a set it and forget it Telecaster pedal, so the volume is what it is... if you're using it for a boost, you probably want more volume anyway. The sparkle this pedal adds to your tone is amazing enough to make you forget what a pain in the rear the customary side mounted AC jack is for running daisy chains, and you really can't beat the price. I'm extremely happy with this product, just as I have been with every other MXR pedal I've owned (Micro-Amp, BA '78, DynaComp).
