In this episode, Daniel and Mick explore the basics of the much maligned graphic EQ pedal, and how it can be immensely useful on your pedalboard.
Using a standard Boss GE-7, they explain how you can use an EQ pedal as a global tone shaper, a solo boost, a rhythm cut and also to shape the sound of your overdrive sounds, depending where you place it in the signal chain.
If you're having problems cutting through a mix, retaining clarity in your sound or need something to help with volume cuts or boosts, a graphic EQ pedal could be the very thing.
They also take a brief look at the latest Kingsley Jester valve overdrive pedal, using it as the filth maker in all of today's tones. For more on the Jester, go here: http://kingsleyamplifiers.com
Amps used are the Mallard 18-watt Marshall clone into a 2x12 with Greenbacks and a Lazy J 20 combo. Dan is playing his 2002 Gibson Custom 1958 Les Paul Standard, and Mick is playing his Fender American Vintage ’62 Stratocaster. As always, switching is handled effortlessly by TheGigRig G2.
