    Wow. He took a scooped Recto tone and then scooped it more.

    Sounds like a can of obese bees, or some pitiful attempt at a killer metal tone by a fat noob in a pantera tshirt in his mother's garage with a line6 spider half stack. I absolutely do not understand Mesa's fascination with scooped mids.


    (that said, I do like Pantera, but holy crap, that clip sounded terrible)

      That being said, I think its brilliant. Add Mesa's 5-band to any rig. Very smart on their part. Bravo.

        I haven't listened to any clips yet, but I find there new pedals interesting.

            Yeah, he should have gotten a more generic sound, and then scooped it with the pedal only.

            Absolutely. All amps should have an EQ between the preamp and power amp, it's where you get the best shaping.

              $250 for the EQ pedal.
              $300 for the distortion pedal with the EQ.

                That must be the "lost in the mix" setting. Finally a tone that doesn't make me want to buy anything!

                  I'd take the Mesa 5 band over any EQ pedal on the market. They should have done this ages ago.

                    FFS, it sounds like a Metal Zone with marginally better low end definition.

                      How does this Mesa EQ differ from a MXR 6-band or Boss EQ pedal? For being so much more money, it has to do something different, right?

                          Ha, I started playing the video and thought ... that doesn't sound bad, actually.
                          And then he turned the pedal on ... oh my.
                          You are right. Horrendous.

                            Possibly the frequencies it shapes:

                              Exactimundo! (But that's not the only reason)

                              Every other graph EQ pedal I've seen has dumb, arbitrarily-defined frequency bands, usually based on a simple "make the next one double" progression. Mesa specifically picked their slider values (80, 240, 750, 2200, 6600) based on frequencies an electric guitar is most likely to produce. It's a more "musical" EQ, for lack of a better word.

                              EQ is a very, very, very powerful effect, and it's kind of sad that nobody else seems to do this correctly. In the studio/engineering world, a lot of attention is paid to EQ. If you think the Mesa pedal is expensive, you ain't seen nothing yet.
