    That's really odd, I never had that issue with mine. RC is a great tone shaping tool, nice choice.

    Yeah, so far so good. I wish it had a bit more gain on tap but it's not a deal breaker by any means.

    It's the standard bearer and a great EQ and for 20 bucks in parts you can easily mod them to improve the S/N ratio well beyond most competitors.

    It isn't so much the sound I don't like, but the feel. EQs tend to mess with the feel too much, and add compression at the boosted frequencies.

    My Stone Deaf PDF-2 is my favorite pedal.

    Parametric EQ with footswitchable overdrive. Boost the specific frequencies that make your amp sound better, then add just enough grit if you need extra.

    I'm quite happy withe MXR 10 band EQ (now silver).

    The Boss GE-7 (thus 7 bands) is popular as well (but I have not tried it yet).

    I use this one and I don't think I would ever spend money on another one unless they come out with something significantly better.
    It's quiet, it's sturdy yet light, it's true bypass, it has four slots for user presets, it is MIDI controllable if that's your thing, it's easy to figure out and it has a pretty wide range of +/- in each band.

    I've been interested in that Source programmable EQ for a while now.

    What’s the +\- increment on this one?

    After further exmination, the tone suck might be from a poorly designed FX Loop. I noticed ALL my pedals introduce tone suck in my Engl once they're connected through the loop, but sound fine up front. So that might be it for you as well?

    I'm just wondering what the minimum increments of adjustment are for each band.


    edit: I should be asking MGW,,,,,,,I got confused and thought it was NegativeEase's pedal lol,,,,,,,,,,,I switched to Modelo to avoid the Corona virus!

    I think it's a finer adjustment than that. Jeff from Source Audio told me there are five or six points from 0 to +18dB so I'm guessing it's probably adjustable in 3dB increments. That would make sense.

    Oh yeah, sorry didn't mean to mislead TMD -I was referring to EACH Square in the display representing 6dB

    The pedal can certainly dial in at at least 6x that resolution -probably more.
