a few questions:
why would i get an eq pedal when the amp has it? and guitar? just to further modiy the low-mid-high?
The EQ pedal that people like Michael, Dozin & I use is custom built based on the same circuit (and, in some cases, the exact same electronics) that Weir used on board in several of his guitars from the mid 70's-early '80's. It was one of the components of his sound from that era, along with his guitar, pickups, effects and, mostly, his playing style. This EQ can't be replicated by standard EQ's in amps and the tone knobs of guitars. It's active (runs on a 9v DC), has a gain & cut structure, and is 3-way (low, mids, highs). The theory is that these frequencies are tuned very similarly to the onboard EQ that Weir used.
