    I wonder why anyone would use an eq pedal for recording. There're great eq plugins out there.

    Yeah, I can think of several scenarios -but understand your point.

    You are a novice recorder with limited tools and using what you have to replicate your live tone.

    You are recording to any format of tape without a full parametric EQ on the mixer. (PJ Harvey recorded an incredible album to cassette)

    You are recording a live recording using your stage rig onstage -especially if you re taking board feed instead of ISO transformer split or dedicated mics.

    In principle i remove most everything I can in the signal chain when recording but that's not typically how your average home recordist works -they use the gear they have.

    About the only time I use an EQ pedal while tracking is when I need to shape the guitar sound before it hits the amp.

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

    Well, in these scenarios - yes. But on the other hand, if I were a novice in recording or wanted to record my gig, I wouldn't care much about some noise from an eq pedal or would use a noise gate anyway

    I don't like to EQ stuff after recording. My aim is always to get the amp sounding as good for the song in the room as possible, and then leaving the track the hell alone. While I don't use an EQ pedal, using one while recording (for the previously stated purpose) makes sense to me.

    In this video the engineer for the Queens of the Stone Age album Songs for the Dead explains how he used a Boss Parametric EQ pedal in the control room and everything went through that pedal.
