I had a dano eq at one time but it didn't really do anything for me. It was quiet but it just seemed like it kept thinning out the sound. It seemed like it fell under the motto of, you get what you pay for.
What I play in Designing Me:
Fender Am Tele - Boss TU2 - Fulltone OCD - Line 6 Echo Park -
Matchless Clubman 35 or Orange AD30 -
Marshall 1936 2x12 (with english Celestion Greenbacks)
