Boss GE-7 Equalizer
The GE-7 is a fantastic seven band equalizer with an additional eighth slider for boosting or cutting your overall signal. While this can certainly perk up tone deprived guitars, we’ve seen the GE-7 mostly used as a very versatile boost for solos and louder passages. Selective use and/or abuse of the sliders can yield muted filtered flavors as well as distant-sounding lo-fi fizz. Placed after your crunch pedals, this box has the ability to add a little more substance to leads than the lone tone knob on most of your overdrive and distortion pedals. When combined with modulation effects, a tweaked GE-7 is almost like adding a whole new effect to your board. By being able to boost or cut up to 15db on each band of the GE-7, you can beef things up or tone things down as much as you like. The tonal possibilities of the GE-7 are endless. Don’t limit yourself to using it only with your guitars either; the GE-7 will work wonders on keys, synths and drum machines. If you need that cheap Teisco Del-Ray to sound thick or your Gibson 335 sound like an AM radio, this Boss is up for the task.
