Boss EQ-20 Advanced EQ


$300.00 Released February, 2001

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Design is rugged and reliable - build lives up to the legendary Boss reputation. Preset feature offers quick EQ adjustment between songs, or even in the middle of a performance. Simplistic layout is highly conducive to live performance - precision adjustment can be carried out quickly and in low lighting.

The Cons:Not for beginners - positive results require a working knowledge of audio frequency (lows, mids, highs). Excessive EQing may result in tone degradation - can be very bothersome for serious musicians.

The Boss EQ-20 Advanced EQ is an all-purpose graphic equalizer pedal. Sound tuning can be handled on 10 bands using individual fader sliders for each one. This allows users to compensate for the environment they find themselves in and for various types of amplifiers, and can be used in conjunction with other effects pedals.
