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.

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

    I wanted to bring out the best tone on my Gibson Hummingbird Pro when plugged into PA systems- especially where the system did not have much or any EQ available. This unit is just perfect for bringing out the best tones and range for electric acoustics. Just a little scooping of the lower miss around 200 and a little boost to the high end around 3000 and what a huge difference. This device is more important than any other for getting a good tone. I love it.

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

      I always thought the idea of using EQ pedals was dumb because you can shape your sound with the amp's settings but I've realized after getting this that a separate EQ is definitely something you should have. I use this pedal for everything now. It is simple and can make your amp and/or guitar sound totally different and opens up a lot of new possibilities. It works really great at giving your guitar a more chunky sound. I put it in front of the amp and leave all the slides flat but just boost the low and high mids a hair and everything sounds much better than before. Sturdy build quality too, all metal. Don't see this thing ever breaking. The red lights are an added bonus for playing in a dark setting. If you want to fatten up your guitar and make your amp shine a little more, get this.

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

        I used to have a BOSS Eq-20 but the thing was huge and took up too much room on my pedal board. It had a lot of sliders but I didn't really find them that useful in the grand scheme of things. This EQ is perfect and does the same job for half the price and size. Adds more gain and clarity to my sound and I leave it on all the time now. Haven't experienced any hiss or hum at all. I placed it after my distortion and fuzz pedals and before my delay. Red lights on sliders help with seeing it in the dark when we play and turn the lights down, also looks cool. Built like a tank. Get it!!!

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

          This is a quality EQ pedal. The Construction Feels solid and the sound is great!

          Once thing to note is that when I first put it in my chain (Guitar to EQ to Comp to Amp) it added a loud noise floor. Instead I then decied to try it as an effects loop using the Pre Out and Power In plugs on my amp and it was totally silince and worked perfectly. (Pre Out to EQ to Power In)

          If you don't have Pre Out and Power In plugs on your amp, I may not get this pedal since it likely will add a sum of noise. If you do, though, this pedal is awesome. I leave it on all the time to shape my tone (especially clearing out muddiness at 200 and 400).

                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.
